Has anyone else experienced hallucinations and vivid nightmares while taking the new red-coated, easy to swallow, extra strength Tylenol? I have taken the old Tylenol for more than 20 years with absolutely no side effects. Why should the new stuff be so troublesome?
no, I never heard of that. And No I don't have that problem either. Is he on any other medication. Some medicine it can be a straight side effect from it.
I was thinking I was getting crazy but I had exactly the same side effects two days ago after I took 2 extra-streght Tylenol. It was SCARY, I had vivid nightmares and hallucinations. I also had violent feelings like I was going to hit somebody or something. I have confess that day I didn't eat very much before I had the Tylenol but I never had a side effect like that before. Tylenol is always being a safe option for me because I cant take ibuprofen or aleve.Now I am scared to take it again :(
Same experience for me. The base drug acetaminophen will be the same, it is the 'easy swallow' coating. No other meds, Tylenol user for 30 yrs. I will not take it again, the nightmares were vivid and unsettling.
Been taking tylenol for many years. Recently every night 2 tablets at night for shoulder pain. Last 2 weeks nightmares and hallucinations when taking only 2 regular strength 325 tablets. Just now heard someone sighing next to my bed. Couldnt wake up. Very fatigued during day and falling asleep during day. Also sometimes in a fog and dazed in daytime could this also be an effect of tylenol?
I took some for my cramps. After about 20 minutes it began to make me tired I went to bed and the hallucinating started . I saw my kids repeatedly enter and leave my room heard footsteps as well. Then I also couldnt wake myself from violent dreams. Felt like attacking my husband as well. I am very afraid to sleep right now and I need to go to work in the morning. How long will this last?
I have vivid, very interesting dreams involving my much younger self and family.
when I experience a pain in my stomach I used to take Tylenol for pain relief. As a result, I used to experience some hallucination and I used to hear some voices and my eyes and skin colour change to yellow, feeling sleepy and change in mode. I used to look like someone not well, I was distracted all the time as my friends and my sister keep tell me what is wrong? are you ok? when I stopped for taken it I did not experience any of this side effects. It was biased for me to know that other people out there have had experienced the same thing, the same side effects, and it never crosses my mind that it is the medication. for me, now I realised that was the medication and how that could be a damaged for brain function as taking this type of medication for the long run.
Happened to me too
Took 2 red coated extra strength Tylenol for headache early in. Experienced a horrible night of bad dreams.
For the past several years, I've noticed that whenever I take Extra-Strength Tylenol or generic Acetaminophen, I have intense and vivid dreams/nightmares afterwards. Haven't experienced any hallucinations, but definitely a correlation with the dreams/nightmares.
I thought i was crazy for this! I don't hallucinate, however my dreams are sooo vivid and creepy! Only when I take the red tab extra strength. Has anyone found out a reason for this? I've spoken to my Dr and he just looked at me like I was crazy.
I had such a vivid scary dream last night after taking extra strength red coated tylenol in middle of night for a headache. i have no health issues and take no other medications. I woke up literally crying and very upset. took hubby awhile to wake me out of dream.. I'm not quick to take anything for headache . Had been fighting a dull headache for a couple of days, it was getting worse in middle of night.. I have never had any issues like this.
So i haven’t had a dream in about a year and a couple days ago I’ve had this neck pain so i took 2 extra strength 500mg tablets. Went to bed and had a dream so vivid, i had to tell myself for about 30 seconds it was a dream to wake up. The next morning i thoiught it was weird because i haven’t had a dream in a while and sure enough, last night i took 2 tablets and same thing. Horrible dream last night. There has to be something about these causing dreams because when i take Advil no dreams at all
My grandfather recently had spinal surgery and was given 100 tablets of the red pain reliever stuff. It’s been a week and they are about half gone. He’s been seeing spiders and we don’t see them. He describes them as black-and-white, fast, INVISIBLE, spiders. He believes they are there and has been trying bomb their room with the bug stuff. It’s gotten bad, and we don’t know what it is. Should we bring him to the doctors or what? Is it the pain relievers? Please give a reply.
I have had the same experience with the red-coated extra strength Tylenol! I thought I was just super tired, so I decided to look it up and found this forum. I think I'll go back to the uncoated and only use these during the day. My dreams are like movies and hard to wake up from. Anyone know what it is in the coating that causes the dreams. I can't remember having the dreams with uncoated Tylenol.
