Can I have tylenol when am I’m keto…in 4th week of keto and feeling little tired after covid vaccine
What does Tylenol have to do with feeling ‘tired’?
Tylenol (acetaminophen) is perfectly fine to take.
HI and Welcome…yes it is fine to take and treat any symptoms if ya feel bad a little if needed. nothing wrong with that HOPE you feel better fast!! That is the good choice, it is recommended to not take the Ibuprofen line of pills…so yea, you good!
Congrats on 4 weeks in, only better healing will come if you hold plan!
The ibuprofen comment was in regard to the vaccine, not keto. I’ve never heard anything about not being able to take any medications while eating keto. Probably because it is a natural physiological state. The exception being that if keto resolves existing medical issues, prescription medications may need to be adjusted rather quickly. But that’s more about a change in need rather than a function of being in ketosis.
Also, as far as I know, any pain killers are fine post-vaccination, but aspirin, ibuprofen, acetaminophen and naproxen may interfere with the function of the vaccine if taken before the injection. Might be worth researching for yourself if you are concerned.
To clarify, Tylenol is pain medication. If you’re having a reaction to the vaccine, see a doctor ASAP. On the other hand you may be experiencing ‘tiredness’ and/or other symptoms of carb withdrawal, which is common when many folks start keto, and which can last for days or weeks. A mild reaction to the vaccine could exacerbate that, I suppose. If that’s the case, eating more salt will be more useful than taking Tylenol. Although, to emphasize, if you’re feeling pain do to reaction to the vaccine, see a doctor!
Of course you can, is this caffeinated Tylenol or something?
LOL. I’m sure it was a sincere question, but I don’t understand it either.
Thank you so much…just a worried doubt
Always check with a doctor, of course, but the vaccine has known side effects, including pain and tiredness. After my second shot, my blood pressure went to 157/85. My heart rate was steady in the 90s, which is 40 bpm higher than normal. I had a 102.4 fever for 8 hours. I felt horrible. Every part of my body was in pain, sometimes sharp pains, but other times dull, All of that was considered “normal reaction” and not a concern.
