Is it safe to take Tylenol Pm while on accutane?

Recommended Posts

The past week or so I have not slept very much at night maybe 2-4hrs. I constantly wake up and that pretty much ruins my day. I honestly can't remember the last time I slept straight through the night. I am finishing up my second month, I had to stop for 10days due to the side effects and went from 40-80-40 to just 40 a day.

Would taking Tylenol PM do any damage? Does anyone know or suggest any safer sleep medicnes? It's really effecting me at work.

I'd say give your dermatologist a call. I personally sleep better with accutane because I get more tired during the day, but each person is different.

Also, you don't really need the Tylenol in the Tylenol PM, but rather just the sleep aid, diphenhydramine. You can find this in a product called "simply sleep", or also in Benadryl, where it's one of the active ingredients.
