Tylenol/Codeine #3 , a combination of acetaminophen and a narcotic, is used to alleviate mild to moderate pain.
These drugs are taken orally in the form of tablets and capsules. When used in combination with one another, these two drugs often provide a higher sense of relief than other medications containing only acetaminophen or codeine.
Common side effects associated with Tylenol with Codeine #3 include dizziness, lightheadedness, fainting, vomiting, nausea and extreme fatigue.
More severe side effects associated with this drug include cold skin, convulsions, severe dizziness, increased sweating, small eye pupils, and continuing nausea and vomiting. If you are experiencing some of the more severe side effects, it is important to get medical help immediately.
Occasionally, Tylenol with Codeine #3 will be prescribed by doctors for other conditions.
