Yes acetaminophen is the SAME as tylenol.
Be careful, as you can damage your liver if you ingest too much acetaminophen.

Thanks for your comments. My Dr. just put me on Celebrex and said I could only take Tylenol for pain relief. The other day I had a headache. I would not be taking Tylenol normally, just when needed.
