Tylenol (acetaminophen) and Codeine: Tylenol (acetaminophen) and Codeine can be taken safely together under physician supervision. In fact, tylenol (acetaminophen) #3 and tylenol (acetaminophen) #4 combine tylenol (acetaminophen) with codeine. To understand the risks and benefits of these medications, please discuss it with your doctors.
