Re: which is better tylenol or advil ?

you cannot take advil pre-op! Be careful and tell your doc if you have since your surgery is soon. If you are talking about post op, each works better for some than others, I found out you can alternate them after surgery and they help better when working together. I was told I could take for ex advil at 9am, then tylenol at 12pm, then advil again at 3pm until my pain was back under control

I was told most post op pain is due to inflammation so to take Advil or Aleve. I took Aleve and it worked well. I never tried tylenol. Best wishes for your surgery.

I think advil works so well because it is an anti-inflammatory and helps with all the swelling....
