    Tylenol is Acetominophen and is safe for kidneys. Ibuprophen is Advil and Motrin. Tylenol, in large doses, can harm the liver.

    Oh, so Tylenol is safe?? I thought Tylenol and Ibuprofun were the same thing.

    It's best to check with your nephrologist. When I was first diagnosed with CKD, I was told in no uncertain terms to stay away from Advil, Motrin (Ibuprophen meds) and Aspirin and any med containing any of those. I only take Tylenol.

    Tylenol is best because aspirin thins the blood. If you have no blood clotting problems aspirin is probably all right. I take aspirin as a blood thinner with the approval of my nephrologist.

    If anti-inflammatorys are unsafe, is aspirin safe to take if you have CKD?
