Tylenol PM & Clonazepam

10/30/2009

Question:

I take 1 mg clonazepam at night for my parasomnia-active sleeping. I also have been taking Tylenol PM along with it for over a year now. Are there any long term side effects taking the Tylenol PM and/also clonazepam? Thank You.

Answer:

Chronic use of Tylenol-PM tends to be less effective when taken chronically as you described. Also, if Tylenol is taken more frequently then you describe, it has the potential to have an effect on the liver. Taken in the manner that you have written, this is probably not a problem. Intermittent evaluation by your physician will minimize potential risks.
