I have a perscription for tylenol 3 but have no idea what the breakdown is in mg. I have taken Vicodin or Norco and know that the 5/325 means 5 mg hydrocodone and 325 mg tylenol. But the tylenol 3- I have no idea what the breakdown is... I don't think some docs are tuned in yet to all the tylenol they're prescribing. I'd be happy if they stopped putting it in other meds. If you feel you need something to make the pain med stronger, you can always take one a few times a day. I took Darvon for years and years, and they added tylenol to it. I even turned green and had my daughter take me to the ER. That was 20 min after leaving the AF pharmacy and we hadn't left town. The ultimate tease of all prescription painkillers. This medicine is tylenol (acetaminophen,paracetamol) combined with codeine, which is a naturally occuring opiate and is therefore a narcotic like all other opiates/opioids. Although it is weaker than oxycodone (OC, Percocets) and hydrocodone (Vicodin), it can still give you a really nice opiate buzz if used in higher doeses. This medicine comes in four different strengths: Tylenol 1,2,3, and 4 which all have different amounts of codeine but the same 300mg of tylenol per pill: Acetaminophen/Codeine (mgs) Tylenol 1 = 300 / 8 Tylenol 2 = 300 / 15 Tylenol 3 = 300 / 30 Tylenol 4 = 300 / 60 These are the most common doses and are commonly nicknamed T(number), for example T3's In the UK, Tylenol 1 and 2 come in over-the-counter form as in the US, all of these are prescription. No doubt, these pills are still really nice to have prescribed for a minor injury, but the reason they are a "tease" is because for those (myself) who try to get high off of the codeine basically have to fucking overdose themselves (myself...) on the tylenol before getting the same buzz. Don't get me wrong, you can still get a nice buzz off of only 100-200 mg's, but after very few times, tolerance kicks in fast and you have to take toxic levels of tylenol before you can get a nice opiated buzz. Many people get liver damage all the time and aren't even aware, but after multiple doses, it can get severe and in higher doses, people end up in the hospital or dead.
I just found some Acetaminophen-Cod #3 laying around my house that's 2 months past the expiration date. If so, how do I tell how much is in one pill, I don't think it's labeled on the container. You could also start watching House; he's addicted to Vicodin It's a painkiller, so mostly what you would expect from a painkiller; euphoria and pain reduction. They usually show the chemical names and what you may experience. Its probably the best website for the subject of psychoactive stuff. Hydrocodone is a semi-sythetic derivative of codeine. What Is Acetaminophen Cod 3 Tablets I use to take Darvocet for my chronic pain (I have a bulging disc with severe pain). Now my doctors have changed my medication to "acetaminphen cod 3." All I hear about this medication is it helps with sore thoats -- how will this help my disc pain? This is the same thing as Tylenol 3 or Tylenol with codeine. Codeine is a stronger opioid than Darvocet, so it should help give you some pain relief. It works on the body's opioid receptors to block pain signals, wherever they come from, so it should be effective at easing the pain you're in from your disc.
Codeine is an opioid pain medication, sometimes called a narcotic. Acetaminophen is a less potent pain reliever that increases the effects of. Acetaminophen, 4'-hydroxyacetanilide, a slightly bitter, white, odorless, crystalline powder, is a non-opiate, non-salicylate analgesic and antipyretic. TYLENOL® with Codeine acetaminophen and codeine No. 4 contains powdered cellulose, magnesium stearate, sodium metabisulfite.
