In brief: It can help for sure

Not sure how much.
Consider some ibuprofen with that Tylenol (acetaminophen). If not helping enough speak with your doctor about other options.

In brief: Yes

Tylenol (acetaminophen) is good for herniated disc pain.
Other useful medications are Ibuprofen and Aleve (naproxen) (naprosyn). Be sure to follow the directions on the bottle to avoid potential adverse side effects.

In brief: Yes it is a very

Common medication option.
It can be used in combination with a non steroidal antinflammatory medication as well if no contraindications. The good news is that 90% of disc herniations get better without surgery.
