Questions about the effect of Tylenol with Codeine are best answered by the doctor that prescribed this to you. There is no set answer that can be given to cover everyone, only general guidelines to be followed with caution if you are unable to get in contact with your doctor.

  • Conditions

There are many conditions that you shouldn't use Tylenol in, these include if you suffer certain allergies, are taking a course of antibiotics or are suffering from diarrhoea. If you are pregnant, suffer from asthma or epilepsy you shouldn't use Tylenol in any circumstances.

Again if you have any of these issues it is best to consult with your doctor about your usage of Tylenol to ensure that there are no conflicts or complications. Tylenol and codeine should not be taken alongside alcohol or other drugs.

  • Effect

Tylenol is used for pain relief, it works on the nervous system and the brain to relieve pain. When you are using Tylenol you must stick to the dosage given on the label, this will have been individually calculated for your particular ailment and should be taken as directed.

As well as relieving pain, combining Tylenol with Codeine can cause drowsiness and should never be taken before driving or any similar demanding activity.

  • General

When taking Tylenol and Codeine you must always follow the instructions given to you- the amounts and usage. Failure to follow these instructions can lead to complications and may also contribute towards a dependency or addiction.

If you become addicted to its use, there will be troubling side effects if you attempt to withdraw; which could be more painful than the original symptom that required its use in the first place.
