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.

Your welcome my friend anytime. Please be careful of the Celebrex too it could cause stomach issues like ulcers you may want to try some Zantac with it to prevent those issues. Good luck, take care marjorie zych
