Discussions that mention tylenol

Back Problems board

Gazoo, please don't take any over the counter pain medications that contain aspirin, ibuprofin, naproxin...these are all NSAID pain relievers and will interfere with your fusion. The only safe anti-inflammatory you can take is tylenol.

My new PM says the contraindication for using Ibuprofen(Advil,Motrin) or other NSAID's only applies to the first three months after a fusion. Also, Tylenol or Acetominophen is NOT an anti-inflammatory. --janiee;)
