You're welcome. I sometimes forget that people don't know the different names of medicines. Tylenol (7 characters) was easier to type than acetaminophen (13 characters). Good luck w/ your relative..?I believe it was your mother or mother-in-law. Have a blessed Sunday!

Just be aware that tylenol or acetaminophen can cause liver damage if taken excessively.
