Extra-Strength Tylenol works best for me for headaches and such.  But for muscle or back aches I go with Advil or Motrin.

Advil or the drugstore equivalent.  Tylenol never had any effect on me.

I take Tylenol because of high blood pressure. It is useless compared to advil. ☹️

Tylenol does not have any effect on me. I take buffered aspirin (Ecotrin or Bufferin) for pain.

Advil and Motrin are both Ibuprofen.


Tylenol is the less likely to interfere with other meds you might be taking.


Your meds could determine which one you should use!


Ibuprofen (Advil) is considered a blood thinner.


Be careful!

@pprmntstx Due to my medical history, my docs only want me taking ES Tylenol for my arthritis and the very rare headache. It works just fine for me. I am not to take ibuprofen or motrin.

Extra Strength Tylenol because I take hbp meds.  It's a no no to take things like Naproxen Sodium (Aleve) or Ibuprofen for (Advil) for those with HBP.  I used to love Excedrin for headaches.  That was way before I discovered I had HBP.
