Tylenol, if taken as directed, is safer. However, occasional ibuprofen usually isn't a problem for the average person. The situation you are describing sounds more like it is from dehydration or other problems at the lower end of the GI system, rather than an ibuprofen-related issue.

There is a lot of misconception about Tylenol. Here is the thing about it - it can either be the best choice or the worst choice for your liver, depending on how much you take. It is safe if used sparingly - all the liver transplant centers use it and they do not use ibuprofen.  Here's something you can read: http://hcvadvocate.org/news/newsLetter/2014/advocate0214.html#2

Thank you! We old ladies love compliments. Don't know if you saw the article Hep did on me, but a good photographer can work miracles. I bet he did some air brushing!http://www.hepmag.com/archive/2014_Sep_2877.shtml?utm_source=homepage&utm_medium=tji1&utm_campaign=print
