Yes you can continue to take it as long as directed by the label or as long as your doctor lets you. The ingredient that makes you sleepy is Diphenhydramine (Benadryl). So if you want to save some money go buy a generic benadryl and take it at night. Take as much as directed on the label. Taking Tylenol PM is usually the first step in treating Insomnia. You can also try Unasol tablets which is a different ingredient that's OTC. If the tylenol PM does work long term as your doctor about trying another sleep (most likely non-benzodiazepines) such as Ambien (Zolpidem), Sonata (Zaleplon) and Lunesta (Eszopiclone, formerly known as Estorra). I hope this helps. Good Luck and sweet dreams!
