1 doctor agrees

In brief: Yes

They don't interact. Both should be used 'as needed' not regularly.

In brief: Yes, within limits

Using these together is okay as long as the tylenol (acetaminophen) is plain tylenol (acetaminophen) -- without additional CNS depressants (like codeine, etc) in it.
Valium can made you feel sleepy and dizzy. Recommended maximum dose of tylenol (acetaminophen) over a 24 hour period is four grams (4000 mg) or eight extra-strength pills. Regular strength tylenol (acetaminophen) = 325mg/pill; extra strength = 500mg/pill. Don't drink alcohol with this.
