Question?: What is your question? Typically the pm pain relievers contain an antihistamine to promote sleep. But you may be groggy in the morning when you wake up. If you do not need pain relief try to avoid them, too much tylenol (acetaminophen) can have very bad side effects. Also please take only infrequently, never on a continuous basis. If sleeping is a problem, talk to your physician.
