Advice & Tips: Tylenol 3# was very effective in reducing undesired symptoms For which It was prescribed.......however, Tylenol 4# was completely different, and significantly worsened all symptoms for which it was taken. I am unsure of any causative factor contributing to this phenomenon, ......I shall just return to treatment with Tylenol 3#. A significant deviation in expected side effects, was caused by Tylenol 4#......specifically, (based on side effects of Tylenol 1# and Tylenol 3# in the past) T4s caused absolutely no itching and tingling symptoms, which were caused in excess by T1 and T3s. Unfortunately, T4s were also completely ineffective, and tended to have completely opposite/inverse effects, compared to T1/T3s.
