Hi. Dr Rick here. I completed an Internal medicine internship in NYC and have two decades of clinical experience. How can I assist you today?
You can take either one of those medications, but since they are both metabolized in the liver there is a small chance they could cause trouble....but this is a small chance.
To be 110% safe, take two extra strength aspirin every up to 4x/day.
Is ibuprofen the same as aspirin? and this over tylenol? (thanks)
Your liver should heal, and your liver enzymes return to normal as long as you keep away from the sauce for a while. No specific actions are needed on your part other than eating a healthy diet, exercising (hard to do with a bum leg, I know) and take it easy.
Ibuprofen is not the same as aspirin, and yes, to be extra, extra safe, I would use aspirin (and ice packs on your leg) over tylenol.
Does this make sense to you?
Yes it does. I will buy some aspirin.
Ok. I hope your leg feels better soon. Have a good weeken
