• I don't know if it is addictive (we don't have Tylenol in the UK) You may be having trouble sleeping because your body has got used to having a bit of extra help in getting to sleep, but it will get back to normal in time you'll just have to be patient for a while. Try having a milky drink before you go to bed and a nice hot bath. Don't do anything too exciting or strenuous in the evenings. And remember, although there is nothing worse than not being able to sleep, and you may feel like you're the only person in the world when you're walking round the kitchen at 4am, no-one ever died through lack of it and your body will get back to normal soon.
  • Tylenol Pm contains tylenol, plus antihistimine. the antihistimine is what your body is missing, at bedtime. Antihistimine is non-addictive and it helps with allergies, as well as a nightime relaxer, before bed. I take one each night before bed and sleep like a baby. have for 15 years. The antihistimine is only 25 mg. in tylenol pm. this is a very low doseage.
  • It is not physically addictive but it can be psychologically addictive. When something is physically addictive your body goes through withdrawals when you stop taking it. Think cigarettes or cocaine. Psychological addiction occurs if your unconscious mind starts to believe that you can't sleep unless you take a pill then you will experience insomnia if you stop taking the pill.
  • Thak you, Anthony
  • Thank you. nthony
  • I don't think so. I started taking it three months ago.
  • Any thing can be addictive if you abuse it:food,gambling,drinking,and acholoic beverages.
  • I take it some nights and it works like a charm. I try not to take it unless I really feel like I'm going to have trouble sleeping. I don't feel like it's something I can't do without so I don't think it's addictive. I have heard though that you can build up a tolerance and it stops working???
  • what is the site afacts wall prego
  • They don't consider something like Benadryl addictive but many become dependent on OTC sleep meds and when they don't take them, they cannot sleep. The only problem with Tylenol PM is taking too much Tylenol, so try never to take Tylenol during the day and you should be fine.
  • I think so I was prescribed Ambien and it did'nt work I take three tylenol pm's and I sleep so good.
  • YES...YES IT IS!! Let me get straight to the point. Over time,your body starts to become immune to the reccommended dosage,in turn, you increase the dosage for it to be effective. Before you know it,you'll be taking 8 or 9 pills a night to help you sleep,this can, and will have serious effects on your liver. I urge you to stop NOW! If you don't,you will experience the same thing a cocaine addict,or any other addict does,when you try to quit. You will not be able to quit without the help of medical doctors. The withdrawl symptoms make you very weak,tired,cause hot flashes,loss of appetite,etc. Once you get to this point,w/o proper medication to help with withdrawls,things can begin to shut down,possibly causing death. How do I know this...I was fortunate enough to live through it. PLEASE SEEK HELP.
  • Yes it is addictive, and the matter of fact is it has some kind of mood elevators in it, I don't know how they do it, but it can be proven clinically, otherwise acetaminophen/paracetamol is a NSAID (non steroidal anti-inflammatory drug) and in any manner it is not addictive et all. In capitalism if you let people on the mercy of companies things like this will happen. If it proved true what will happen to the country, and it will cost America, and whole capitalism.
  • I think the effects wear off if taken too many days in succession and you can't take more and more because it will get you sick to your stomach so no, not a good example of an addictive substance.
