How long can you take tylenol (acetaminophen) pm (i.E. How many consecutive nights) for it to remain effective and safe?

Efficacy not good: In spite of the fact that it seems that many people are able take Benadryl for days on end and it still works, I really don't see any necessity of adding in the tylenol (acetaminophen).

Add to that the impairment of driving in the morning that has been documented in studies and the potential for weight gain and Benadryl and you really do not have a very ideal sleep medication there. ...Read more
