Coming down with a cold took 2 tylenol at 11:00 a.m. today and 2 more at 2:00 p.m. today. Since that time I feel worse so I went and bought some alka seltzer cold and flu but is said don't take with other medicines with acetaminophen in it. It's been 7 1/2 hours since the tylenol how long should I wait before taking the alks seltzer?
