Tylenol (acetaminophen) for Sciatica: “Tylenol is the only OTC medication that helps my sciatica”

Tylenol 8 Hour (acetaminophen) for Pain: “I use it a few times per week for pain flares with my chronic pain. It seems to work better than extra strength and longer. I don’t need to rely on my oxycodone as much now that I take this for some pain flares. That being said, not every pain flare is the same and I end up still using one of my oxycodone. I’m allowed up to 4 per day, but now I take one or two since I started to use Tylenol 8 hour. I use the store brand of it too and it works just as well.”

For Pain: “It cannot be overstated how dangerous this medication is.Over 100 teens DIE yearly in the USA ALONE from an Acetaminophen OD.I believe personal experience is illustrative & common so I’ll share.The child was not truly trying to harm herself, as with most, they don’t think it can harm them, their desire is to regain control.They may vomit – regardless, they wake the next morning feeling embarrassed but fine, unaware their liver is dying inside them – & by the time they realize they are sick, nothing can be done.Please EDUCATE YOUR CHILDREN ON THE DANGERS of this is liver-killing POISON!NEVER EXCEED recommended dosage, I never go above 3 doses daily, & NEVER MIX WITH ALCOHOL!I also avoid APAP meds, 5Mg oxycone, not Percocet, etc”

For Pain: “Two 500 mg caplets taken at a time, 4 times a day. Did not work at all for my severe pain resulting from an abscessed tooth.Only got relief when using two 500 mg caplets of Bayer aspirin.”

Tylenol Arthritis Pain (acetaminophen) for Muscle Pain: “It helps slightly but with Ehlers-Danlos and recurrent dislocations/subluxations it only helps a little if at all. It might help much more with minor conditions.”

For Pain: “I take acetaminophen for various reasons, mostly headaches though. I was advised to stay away from all NSAID medications due to the risk of GI bleeding when mixed with anti-depressants. Acetaminophen isn’t the best pain relieving substance but it works well enough for me.”
