Sure: Tylenol (acetaminophen) pm contains tylenol (acetaminophen) which may not be needed to get to sleep or allergies but probably isn't harmful unless using other tylenol (acetaminophen) throughout the day. Diphenhydramine (main ingredient in many of the medications) makes people very sleep, particularly wen not used everyday so as far as overall allergy medication, as long as not having hangover in day can be quite effective. ...Read more

Would 2 pills of tylenol, (acetaminophen) 1 tramadol, 2 advil, 1 oxycodone, 4 benadryl, 3 midnite sleep aid and 2 melatonin be bad or just put me to sleep for awhile?

YES - DANGEROUS!: This is way too much medication to take all at once, and could put you in grave danger - including potential liver/kidney damage, or worse - death.

Does tylenol (acetaminophen) pm work as a sleep aid even if you're not sick?

Does tylenol (acetaminophen) pm work as a sleep aid even if you're not sick?

Not really: Tylenol (acetaminophen) pm has a decongestant in it of course, which doesn't help regarding sleep at all. There is often a small amount of antihistamine added, meant to dry up mucous, and to be mildly sedating. It doesn't always work, and antihistamines should not be used as sleep aides. First, there are better ones, and second, true sleep issues should be addressed. Warm milk and quiet environment is still best. ...Read more

Insomnia: There are tons of different sleep aids available, but at this point your insomnia is also caused by the fear/anxiety of not being able to fall asleep. I've had good success with short as needed use of Lorazepam in select patients. It works like a champ for them up to a week and then they are able to sleep on their own. There's a concern of them being addictive, but short and as needed use is ok. ...Read more
