Codeine: Codeine comes in many strengths either alone or combined with other medications such as Tylenol (acetaminophen). Your friend's Surgeon chose this combination/strength based on medical history, body mass, extent of the procedure, and many other factors. If your friend has questions he/she should call the surgeon directly.
