In brief: Tramadol & tylenol (acetaminophen)

Yes, it is safe, and it even makes sense.
Both medications are analgesics, but they work by different mechanisms, thus their effects should be additive. You could also add Ibuprofen to the mix, since it is also an analgesic with a different mechanism.

In brief: Yes

Yes, you can take both together. You shouldn't take pain meds for longer than a few weeks before you discuss it with your doctor who prescribed the tramadol.
