  • FYI Tylenol can cause liver failure if you take too much. The max dose is 4 Grams within a 24 hour period. Oh, and it's not the Tylenol that makes you sleepy, It's the diphenhydramine/benadryl mixed in...just sayin :)

  • Melatonin is actually a hormone that occurs naturally in adults. Adding a little to help you sleep better won't effect the pain reliever. Tylenol PM is just acetaminophen (a pain reliever) with the same ingredient in benadryl. -- an antihistamine that (as a side effect) makes you sleepy.

    You're probably okay mixing them, but if the real problem is tooth pain, which can be quite severe, you should see a dentist as soon as possible. Extra pain reliever instead of extra sleep aid will probably work best. But, be careful with Tylenol -- acetaminophen is the leading cause of liver damage in this country.

  • My grandsons doc. put him on melatonin and he said you can take it with anything cause it's a natural sleep aid.

  • I have been going to my dentist but she cant see me for over a week, I cant take benadryl because of the red color im not taking that much tylenol just at night

  • get some oil of clove and put it on some cotton and set on the tooth. should make it better. caution: oil of clove can be a spicy meatball!
