    Tylenol (acetaminophen) can be taken every 4 hours.  Motrin (ibuprofen) can be taken every 6 – 8 hours.  The time interval between successive doses of Tylenol or successive doses of Motrin is what matters; it can be less time than the recommended intervals if alternating Tylenol and Motrin (e.g. you can give Motrin 3 hours after giving Tylenol).
