Take Tylenol 3 for chronic back pain. Was on Hydrocodone but since it was moved to Schedule 2 my doctor stopped prescribing. Tylenol 3 is no where close to Hydrocodone. It makes me very sleepy even with my Adderall.

I developed severe stomach pain with bloating and went to the ER. After many tests the conclusion was I had a severe allergic reaction to the acetaminophen. This was not a drug I had taken before this week. I was given the drug for knee pain.

Easy to use but I need to take laxative with it. It makes me extremely constipated. Sometimes I think this adds to the back pain I'm trying to ease!
