Tylenol with Codeine #4 (acetaminophen / codeine) for Pain: “It should be noted I've been on pain medications for 21 years so you can imagine I've tried it all, I use Tylenol #4 for breakthrough pain and for me it works very well from an 8/10 to a 3-5/10 but bearable. We each have different metabolisms that being said and as a result medicine doesn't do the same thing for everyone some of you will do well with Percocet or Vicodin, they don't work well for me but T4s do. Go figure.....so when you go to a doctor or go to the dentist they will take your opinion on this matter into consideration. Only we know what works for us. I saw so many reviews for T3s or T4s that said it didn't work for them it probably did to a minimal extent, but again you know your body and what pain medications especially that work for you I wish you all good luck in the future but for me T4s work wonders for me”

Tylenol with Codeine #4 (acetaminophen / codeine) for Pain: “Hi, Although I do agree with everyone that these Tylenol-anything are junk for pain (especially if you’ve been on more effective pain relievers prior for a while), I just wanted to point out to all who are saying they’re flooding your liver with acetaminophen now that the DEA caused you to switch from other ones... Norco and T4s have all the same amount of Tylenol (aka acetaminophen or paracetamol depending where you’re from). Just wanted to mention that, as well as that generic brands of all these have the exact same narcotics in them as the name brands so I’m not sure why people think they’re less effective. Maybe it’s the fillers? Who knows. Anyways, yeah I agree that the DEA has screwed everyone in the USA. Something similar is happening here in Canada and it sucks for pain patients here so bad too! :(”

Tylenol with Codeine #3 (acetaminophen / codeine) for Pain: “I am experiencing VERY BAD tooth pain to where I feel like crying. I was prescribed tylenol #3 so I took it and it did absolutely NOTHING for my pain. That was a complete waste of my money. I will be going back to taking the advil and tylenol combo.”

Tylenol with Codeine #3 (acetaminophen / codeine) for Pain: “Prescribed Tylenol with codiene for pain following tooth extraction. Made me feel buzzed but did nothing about the pain. Do not take it and drive or use machinery. I thought it might help me sleep but before I could fall asleep I started itching really bad so no, not good for that either. It's really a waste of money.”

Tylenol with Codeine #3 (acetaminophen / codeine) for Pain: “I was given this in the hospital when the pulmonary embolism It had shifted very painfully. Helped get me from a pain level or 6 or 7 down to a reasonable 1 or 2. Had been given Norco and even morphine previously but they where so strong I slept over 18hours a day. Would definitely recommend Tylenol with codeine to someone in moderate pain.”

Tylenol with Codeine #3 (acetaminophen / codeine) for Pain: “I have a dry socket from right lower molar extraction and was prescribed this medication for the severe pain. This pain is unbearable and Tylenol with codeine does nothing for it. If I could give this a 0 I would. I don’t know why this is still on the market Advil did more for me.”

For Cough: “This comment is for NightShadow. Do you take Lisipril by any chance, for blood pressure? I had that same disgusting constant cough for 2 years. I was in the salvation army doing my cough and one of the employees commented that she use to have the same cough. She linked it to the Lisipril. And sure enough!!!! That was the problem.”

For Pain: “I thought it was just me; like maybe I somehow smoked too much marijuana and my body started to reject the pain relief from T3. Seems like this is not the case though because these pills do absolutely nothing. Not sure if they're some type of placebo or something but the infected cavity that I have currently sitting on my jaw nerve is supremely painful. When's the last time you seen a grown man cry? I've been taking these useless pills like candy hoping that they eventually kick in but these seemingly work slightly less better than Goody/BC powder.”

Tylenol with Codeine #3 (acetaminophen / codeine) for Pain: “I have come to the conclusion thru reading the comments below that the biggest addiction and overdose threat from this medication comes with the fact they don't treat moderate to severe pain.”

For Pain: “This stuff acetaminophen with codeine does nothing. I'm waiting for surgery for pain in back and hip, and this is all I get? A few people misuse opioids and the rest of us have to suffer. What is going to happen is more and more people will be taking their pain relief into their own hands. Good luck to you all.”

Tylenol with Codeine #3 (acetaminophen / codeine) for Pain: “I had a severe tooth ache and my dentist gave me a prescription of this tylenol with codeine, not many but just to ease my pain.

For Pain: “I had pain on both sides of my mouth probably 6 or 7. I went to the dentist had my teeth cleaned and was prescribed ibuprofen and penicillin until my appointment to have four teeth extracted. Went back after a month and the pain was unbearable. Appointment was scheduled 2 months after my original visit. Second time with unbearable pain I was prescribed Tylenol 3. It did absolutely nothing for my pain.”

Tylenol with Codeine #3 (acetaminophen / codeine) for Pain: “I have been on pain medicine for about 2 decades, due to pain caused by a motor bike crash. Broke my leg in three parts and crushed ankle etc. At first they put me on many pain medicine like morphine, oxy and many others but I got very addicted to them due to my severe pain. So my doctors started cutting down slow and they started using Tylenol 3 and therapy. So now it has been over two decades and I am taking 6 Tylenol 3 a day with therapy. I am doing okay. I have to admit there is days that I have severe pain that Tylenol 3 relieves my pain a little. My advice for you out there that will have to take pain killers (that is what I call them) for a very long time, before you would get out of control with them, go for therapy to know how to have self control over them.”
