Hi Zoe and thanks for reaching out!
Assuming for are taking Entocort for Crohn's disease, Tylenol (acetaminophen) is generally a safer choice than other pain relievers, like ibuprofen or naproxen, as it has fewer gastrointestinal side effects.
Entocort EC (budesonide) is used to treat Crohn's disease (a condition in which the body attacks the lining of the digestive tract, causing pain, diarrhea, weight loss, and fever).
Entocort EC is in a class of medications called corticosteroids. It works by decreasing inflammation (swelling) in the digestive tract of people who have Crohn's disease or in the kidney of people with nephropathy.
Tylenol (acetaminophen) is used to relieve mild to moderate pain from headaches, muscle aches, menstrual periods, colds and sore throats, toothaches, backaches, and reactions to vaccinations (shots), and to reduce fever. acetaminophen may also be used to relieve the pain of osteoarthritis (arthritis caused by the breakdown of the lining of the joints).
Tylenol (acetaminophen) is in a class of medications called analgesics (pain relievers) and antipyretics (fever reducers). It works by changing the way the body senses pain and by cooling the body. Tylenol Arthritis is an extended-release form of acetaminophen.
Thanks again for your question and please feel free to reach out again in the future!
