So, what if the question was: is an overdose of codeine life-threatening? Thanks for your previous answer.
I wouldn't be so worried about the codeine as I would about the Tylenol itself, something that can wreck a liver. You might want to check the exact amount of Tylenol in a pill. This is what Drugs.com has to say about Acetaminophen / Tylenol
"In acetaminophen overdosage, dose-dependent, potentially fatal hepatic necrosis is the most serious adverse effect. Renal tubular necrosis, hypoglycemic coma and thrombocytopenia may also occur.
Early symptoms following a potentially hepatotoxic overdose may include: nausea, vomiting, diaphoresis and general malaise. Clinical and laboratory evidence of hepatic toxicity may not be apparent until 48 to 72 hours post-ingestion.
In adults, hepatic toxicity has rarely been reported with acute overdoses of less than 10 grams or fatalities with less than 15 grams."
