Don’t mix Tylenol and Motrin

I’ve got a fever right now that’s driving my head crazy. After reading my Pathophys chapters I’ve got a wet cloth on my forehead. But still it’s making it very difficult to take the dive into my exam. 
Pain stinks. I’m strongly considering that Tylenol/Motrin combination. But, no… 
While multimodual analgesic combinations such as Tylenol and Motrin do provide significantly more pain relief, the safety of this kind of use has not been completely determined, at least since 2001 (1). But, pending further, research, combinations could be useful such as before surgery (2-3).
