He has to take amoxicillin 500mg 3x a day and also I have to put 10 drops of ofloxacin OP 0.3% 2x a day in his ear. Can he take Tylenol PM to help with the pain and help him sleep especially at night as he hasn't slept good in 2 days now due to the pain. The pharmacist said it was OK to give him regular Tylenol but it doesn't help with the pain or sleep.
Yes, he should be fine. Tylenol pm is basically Tylenol with benadryl in it. But you can use this site's interaction checker and see that there are no interactions between the three.
Your pharmacist is true about that. However, if he's being prescribed for Tylenol #2/#3 with codeine, then it can help. Yet the new regulations have much stricter control of prescribing codeine.
