If I Can't Take Acetaminophen(Tylenol) While On Plaquenil, What Can I Take For The Pain? Or Is That Just A Suggestion From The Pamphlet.

If I Can't Take Acetaminophen(Tylenol) While On Plaquenil, What Can I Take For The Pain? Or Is That Just A Suggestion From The Pamphlet.

The pamphlet has for me not to take acetaminophen(Tylenol) while taking Plaquenil. I was wondering what I can take for pain. I really don't want to take anything that will make me foggy. I just want a littlerelief from the pain.

I also have prescription tylenol 500mg and take plaquenil. I have been taking both for the past five yrs .
When I was taking naproxan I couldn't take tylenol.
When you find out why, please let us know.

I take plaquenil and Tylenol for pain when needed. I actually take Tylenol 3 when needed. My doctors prescribed it to me. My pharmacist also let me know that it was ok.

I've been on plaquenil for years and have never been told by my rheumy to stop taking Tylenol. She's well aware that I take both. If you're concerned call the office and ask. Better to be safe than sorry.

Thank you @Cheerryderabra that was one of the things I was worried about. When I read the pamphlet and I saw that after I had just started back taking Tylenol. For a while I was just trying to deal with the pain conditioning myself to be use to the pain. Since I'm in pain so much. Didn't want to have to always take medicine. And Tylenol is the mildest pill that can give me a little relief and not make me foggy minded. Didn't want to have to stop taking that when needed. Thank you again.
