Stomach Conditions

If you have a history of stomach problems, TYLENOL® may be the right choice of pain reliever for you.

Both TYLENOL® and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), like naproxen sodium, aspirin and ibuprofen, help you feel less pain by elevating the body’s pain threshold. However, NSAIDs affect the production of prostaglandins 

that play a role in protecting the stomach and gastrointestinal (GI) lining. Taking NSAIDs can block the production of these prostaglandins and, as a result, the stomach can become more vulnerable to GI side effects. TYLENOL® will not irritate the stomach the way aspirin, naproxen sodium or even ibuprofen can.

Taking too much TYLENOL® can cause severe liver damage. To learn more about taking acetaminophen appropriately, visit
