I take the generic for Plavix and and a Ativan lowest dose at bedtime for anxiety and help me fall asleep which isn t helping anymore. I am 72 years old and worked second and third shift most of my career. I took a Tylenol the other night and it helped me and I felt better the next morning. Is it alright to take Tylenol with Plavix?

Tablet Tylenol (acetaminophen) can be taken along with Plavix (clopidogrel). Tablet Ativan (lorazepam) used for chronic insomnia - lack of sleep in night may not be effective after regular use for prolonged time. Either increase in dose or switching on to other drugs will be beneficial, particularly if you encounter Withdrawal symptoms.
Moreover treating the cause of chronic insomnia is better. Measures like walking, avoiding anxiety about past/future performance at bedtime, coffee and alcohol restriction, attempting sleep when sleepiness is maximum, avoiding mental stress may succeed.

Take care.

Internal Medicine Specialist Dr. Rajeev Chavda's  Response
Thanks for using the HCM. I am happy to address your questions, yes, you can take Tylenol (acetominephen) with Plavix, there are no interactions between acetaminophen and Plavix but Tylenol is an analgesic medication and not for anxiety or sleep. Will recommend you visit your clinician for the same. Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help. Thanks
