I'm taking Sulfasalazine, just started 3 days ago. I'm experiencing a slight headache. Can you take Tylenol with this stuff do you know? Also, I have a fissure can I take rectal meds with Sulfasalazine. I'm taking 4 a day as prescribe by my doc. No trying to it my way. Sometimes you do have to try medication. I'm still doing the supplements from my Natural path though to help with my overactive immune system, high estrogen and low seratonin, plus some detox. Kermit thought he had it bad being green. It's not easy being me :)

Not sure if the Sulfasalazine would be the cause of the headache each person is diffrent, but I have no problems with it. And no problems with Tylenol.

You headache is most likly came on because of this stupid disease, stop trying to figure it out! And don't beat yourself up, it's not your fault!

I have tried it all for the last 12 years and nothing works. Only meds help out!

Yes, you can take Tylenol, sulphasalazine and rectal meds together. I do not know if rectal meds will help your fissure or not.
