In a recent post here, i learned that Tylenol (Acetaminophen) is better/safer for UC than Advil (Ibuprofen). I'd been an ardent advil fan as i felt it was effective and fast acting (for Muscle aches, headaches, general pain).
Today i took 2 Extra Strength Tylenol (500 mg each) for major muscle/back pain. After an hour of the same pain, i took a 3rd tablet. It took 1 1/2 hours total to feel it working and the pain to lessen. Whereas Advil worked within 15-30 min. in the past.
I feel that 1 1/2 to take effect is a preposterous amount of time.
Is this normal? or could it be something else?
