Q: Can I take Gabapentin with Tylenol?

I am currently taking 300mg Gabapentin, but it does not help with my chronic pain located in my hips and left leg.  Would it be safe to take some Tylenol with the Gabapentin?

When I checked for possible interactions between gabapentin and Tylenol, none showed up, so you should be ok taking them together.  You're wise to check before mixing drugs, even over-the-counter medications.
