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?

Answer

You're wise to check on drug interactions before taking them. As a general rule, I think the best place to go for an answer like this is to check with your pharmacist:

Your pharmacist: An often overlooked health professional

But it looks like this should be okay, assuming you're taking both medications correctly. It's important to use Tylenol carefully, of course, but my research has shown no drug interactions between these meds.
