Tylenol Oral

The nonprescription drug Tylenol® (acetaminophen) is a widely available medication that can be used to treat many different conditions that cause pain and inflammation, such as:
 
  • Premenstrual and menstrual cramps
  • Toothache
  • The flu
  • Headache
  • Backache.
  •  
Tylenol is taken orally (by mouth) and comes in many different forms, including caplets, tablets, gel tabs, and liquid. It is generally taken every four to six hours, as needed; the long-acting formulas are taken every eight hours, as needed.
 
In general, Tylenol is a safe medication, approved for adults, even pregnant women, and children as young as 12 years old (other Tylenol formulations are approved for younger children). However, not everyone can take this oral medication, and side effects are possible. If you or a child experiences something that "just does not seem right," stop taking this medication and contact your healthcare provider.
