Can I take Tylenol one every three hours for tooth pain
Geneviève Duperron Pharmacist owner affiliated with Familiprix

You can take Tylenol #1 containing 325 mg of acetaminophene and 8 mg of codeine up to maximum 12 tablets every 24 hours.  Note that ibuprofen (Advil/Motrin) is often more effective for tooth pain by reducing inflammation, but you should see with your pharmacist if it is a good choice for you

The pharmacist is solely responsible for the answer.
