When should I call my doctor if I am taking Tylenol with Codeine?

If you are taking the prescription pain medication Tylenol with Codeine (acetaminophen and codeine), call your doctor immediately if you experience difficulty breathing or severe mood changes. You should also call right away if you experience an allergic reaction, such as rash, hives, itching or swelling of your face, throat or mouth.

Call your doctor if you experience other side effects that bother you or that don't go away, including:
  • drowsiness
  • light-headedness
  • dizziness
  • nausea
  • vomiting
  • constipation
  • abdominal pain
  • difficulty urinating
  • nosebleeds
  • bruising
  • flu-like symptoms
You should also call your doctor if Tylenol with Codeine does not relieve your pain.

Some medications may interact with Tylenol with Codeine. If you want or need to start taking a new medicine or supplement, call your doctor first. If you are scheduled for surgery, including dental surgery, tell your doctor or dentist that you are taking Tylenol with Codeine. Call your doctor if you become pregnant while taking Tylenol with Codeine.
