Reviews for Tylenol with Codeine #3

Ash March 3, 2020

“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.”

“I was given T3 in place of tramadol for back pain and headaches due to muscle spasms. Works for the headaches but now I’m up all night with restless legs.”

“My wisdom tooth came in and shattered and I've been in immense pain. I was prescribed tylenol 3 and it doesn't take the pain away, it doesn't even take the edge off. I just want to scream because it hurts so bad. I can't even close my mouth anymore.”

“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.”

“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.”

“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.”

“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.”

“Docs are so scared to give pain meds these days. I understand but damn if you need them you need them. I had a spinal fusion and lamonectomy and they give me T3 (Tylenol with codeine #3). I mean, really? I'm in pain. Like can't move from my bed kind of pain and I get T3, what has happened to the world.”

“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. It worked miracles I do not see it's habit forming but the pain is gone when I take two a day, in 6 hour intervals.”

“Suffering from a kidney stone and had my stent removed today. The pain is enough to cause me to throw up and cry like a baby. The T3s I was prescribed take the slightest edge off the 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.”

“Had two molars extracted today. Prescribed T3s for pain. May as well take children's aspirin. Hurting horribly right now. I had 4 children with no pain meds. I know pain and t3s do nothing for me. Damn”

“I got all four wisdom teeth out two days ago and was prescribed this medication by the specialist I saw. The actual procedure went well, but as soon as I got home (about an hour post-op), the throbbing pain in my upper and lower jaw began. I was unable to sleep the first few hours, then slept for about two during the night. The second day was worse, I wasn’t able to sleep at all and the second night I began throwing up. I am awake now, in pain on the third day. Switching to normal Advil to hopefully get some pain relief. :(”

“I was prescribed Tylenol with codiene T3 for a bad toothache that I’ve been having. It was due to cavity deep in my tooth which was a root canal. It stopped hurting after a couple of minutes and the pain isn’t on the tooth anymore so relieved!!”

“I had two root canals done two days ago. I was prescribed ibuprofen 800 for pain and an antibiotic. I am in so much pain from one of the teeth. My whole mouth, jaw and ear hurt. I’m in agony. I called for a better painkiller and got Tylenol 3 with codeine. It’s not working at all. It’s Sunday so I have to wait until tomorrow. I thought Tylenol 3 would help but it’s not”

“Works great for my pain due to a torn Achilles tendon. Unfortunately with the current paranoia surrounding pain medications, good luck getting Tylenol 3. There are no doctors who will even write you a script for it anymore and will instead tell you to get OTC Advil or Tylenol.”

“First I must let you know I have a congenital disability that has become more severe as in pain and at my age of sixty-seven. I am some what more concern over my pain medication, which has today became a much more challenging issue in obtaining. Anyway, it is almost impossible for me to obtain good pain medication without jumping through many hoops, which I am sure some of you are now experiencing . Boy would I love to discuss that issue with you, anyway I have found that Tylenol with Codeine #3 is somewhat easy for me to get a prescription for, and it will work well with my Methadone I am now on for pain. So, sure I do believe Tylenol with Codeine is a good choice, it is very affordable, and for us with pain, it is for now. Somewhat less challenging to get our hands on, I just wish the medical model and those in control of our pain medication understand, they are actually harming us with severe pain. We don't sell our medication, because we need every pill...good luck friends.”

“I have a cavity that is deep into the root of my tooth that is causing me a lot of pain went to dentist and they are going to end up pulling it. But in the mean time gave me Tylenol with codeine and it won't even touch the pain!”

“I have really bad pain/fibromyalgia/osteoarthritis possibly. My pain doctor prescribed me this pill, and it has been a godsend. The only side effect I get, is nausea. I take a Zofran if it’s bad, it really helps my pain. It helps me function in life again.”
