    Good question. The big worry in using anti-inflammatory drugs is inadvertently combining two drugs that have similar ingredients. This can lead to overdoses - and stomach damage and/or liver damage. You don't want to mix aspirin-like drugs with each other or acetaminophen containing drugs with each.

     

    Tylenol and Celebrex are two different classes of drugs. Celebrex contains an aspirin-like ingredient that can damage your stomach lining. If you take too much of a tylenol-like drug (containing acetaminophen) you run the risk of damaging your liver. If you take both of them together in the recommended doses - like you're suggesting - you shouldn't have  a problem with either.

    the two combined work fantastic fo me ...the celebrex reduces inflamation and offers pain releif and he tylenol certainly does the job for the pain...great combination ....when one of either just will not do and two of either does nothing...kinda strange but that is how it works.
