Brief Answer:
can be used together

Detailed Answer:
HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

Yes, these can be used together. There are no interactions between these families of medications.

Tylenol is the trade name for the drug acetaminophen and this can be combined with drugs in the NSAID family such as diclofenac

I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questions

no more than 6 in a 24 hour period

Detailed Answer:
HI

The answer to the first question-- yes, these can be used together, there are no known interactions

The second-- the maximum dose of extra strength tylenol that can be used in 24 hour period is 6 tablets a day. TWO tablets can be taken every 6 hours , not to go over 6 tablets in a 24 hour period.

If anything else unclear, can let me know
