robaxisal contains codeine phosphate and tylenol (acetaminophen) contains codeine, what's the difference?

Not totally true: Robaxisal is a combination of aspirin and a muscle relaxant. It does not contain codeine. Robaxisal-C contains the same two components plus codeine. Tylenol (acetaminophen) is a mild pain reliever and not a muscle relaxant.
