Tylenol PM is a nighttime pain reliever with ingredients that will help you fall asleep. This product relieves minor aches and pains while helping you fall asleep, and it is non-habit forming when you take it as directed.
Infant Tylenol won't upset your baby's tummy and has 160 mg of acetaminophen to reduce fever in infants and babies. This product works differently than other pain and fever medications, and temporarily relieves common problems like toothaches, light fevers, headache, or aches and pains due to flu, a sore throat, and the common cold.
Always read the dosing information on the package of Tylenol you use to confirm that you are taking the correct amount. You may take Tylenol whenever you need to relieve minor aches and pains but never exceed the recommended dose. If you're unsure about how much to take, talk to your doctor before you take Tylenol.
