My four year old son had surgery two days ago and now he has a rash. He is on Tylenol (acetaminophen) with codeine he has had four doses before the rash started.

Call your doctor. The best course of action is to call your doctor immediately and let him know about the rash. Tylenol (acetaminophen) can cause severe skin reactions and in addition since your son was in surgery he should be evaluated right away for any infectious causes of a skin rash as well. I would advise taking him in immediately.

Oxycodone. If you were developing a relationship with them (addiction) it may take the same amount of years you were using them, if that's the case you may want to inquire about suboxone, if you are asking about the withdraw effect you may not experience any on the tylenol (acetaminophen) + codeine but if you do it will last a day or two most likely.
