Doubt vitamins: Insomnia is multifacited and caused by depression, poor sleep hygiene, mood disorders, pain, emotional disruption. I would think that the multivitamins and tylenol (acetaminophen) are likely not relevant, but have your doctor see the label on the bottle to be sure there is not something like sudafed in them. You can try benadryl 25-50 mg at night to see if that helps and then tell the doctor if it worked or not ...Read more

My friend 24 was unable to sleep last night w/ menstrual cramps. Can take tylenol (acetaminophen) but not ibuprofen & allergic to red dye, what are alternatives?
Hard to know: Depends on the nature of the ibuprofen allergy. Are all NSAIDs "off the table"? Sometimes, if really just a hypersensitivity to normal pharmacological side effects (which can include hives in the case of nsaids), then co-management of the side effects is possible if nsaids are needed. If ibuprofen specific allergy, then naproxen may be tolerated (otc). Also, tylenol (acetaminophen) without red dye is available. ...Read more
70 year old male going to have cataract surgery in 10 days and told he can take Tylenol (acetaminophen) for unrelated joint pain. Can he take Tylenol (acetaminophen) PM instead? He has trouble sleeping with the pain.

Talk to your doctor about alternatives for treatment of your insomnia. Best wishes! ...Read more

Children should get less, based on their age or weight. Read labels carefully, and ask your doctor or nurse if unsure. ...Read more
