Can You Take Celebrex And Tylenol Arthritis At The Same Time?

Answer

Yes, Celebrex is an anti-inflammatory medication; thus, it is OK to take with Tylenol. Many people get confused about the labeling on the "Tylenol Arthritis" product because they think it might contain an anti-inflammatory medication. Well, "Tylenol Arthritis" is just plain acetomenophen (Tylenol) with a fancy brand name.

You cannot take Celebrex with medications like: ibuprofen, Aleve, aspirin, or Advil. Whenever in doubt about the over-the-counter medications, you can always ask the pharmacist or your doctor.
