How Should Tylenol with Codeine Be Stored?

Tylenol with Codeine tablets and liquid should be stored at room temperature, away from moisture and heat. Keep this and all other medications out of the reach of children. Because Tylenol with Codeine is a highly desired drug of abuse, make sure to keep it in a safe place.
 

What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose?

Tylenol with Codeine is often prescribed "as needed," which means you do not need to take a dose if you do not feel pain. If you forget to take a dose and notice significant pain, take your missed dose right away. However, make sure to wait the recommended amount of time before the next dose.
