I was given a short course of Tylenol #3 with Codeine for pain following a dental procedure. It helped, but was not as helpful as Vicodin. I would say this drug would be good for less acute/severe pain, while Vicodin would be better for stronger pain control.

i was given this medication for severe back pain on 12/04/08 i have back sergery 5 years ago on L5-S1 after my sergery i was fine acually 100% better. up until now i was getting x-mas boxes from the basement and i heard my back pop when i lifted up a heavy box wich probably weights more than me!!(not really but it weighted i say almost 60 pounds)and im only 115 pounds anyway i hurt my back once again at L5-S1 with pain going down my left leg. so insted of giving me pecocets or oxycodone wich ive been on before for severe pain and they worked well for me, my doctor decides to put me on tylenol#3 with codeine wich ive never taken codeine before well i had really severe side effects nasua,vomiting,rash,sweeting badly ,blured vision. i would suggest that if you have never been on tylenol#3 with codeine please be careful it made me very ill.but also i dident get the chance to see if it would help me with my pain, but id rather be in pain then having to take this medication again,..i will stick with percocets or oxycodone wich i do know helps with my severe pain, and dosent make me sick(lol)but to the people that this medication does help thats great. i do hope it continues to help people with severe of luck to all people who have to deal with pain..because i know pain for me is unbearable with out medication,so find the best medication that fits your pain,once again best of luck to the people who take this medication and im sincerly glad that it does help people with pain!!!!

When taking this medication, at first I am ok, but about an hour or so after taking this, I have severe stomach pains, I will be hunched over in the fetal position screaming in pain. I don't know what is causing this, but when I went to the dr about it all I got was "The pains CANT be from the medication". Maybe I am just going to the wrong dr or something. Anyone have any help for me

This was prescribed for chronic back pain. I took 1 and it did nothing for me. Then I took 2 and it didn't do anything but make me sleepy. I would not recommend this for chronic pain relief.

Pain doc gave me T3 in place of Ultram/Tramadol since my primary doc had given me Cymbalta for arthritis pain. Apparently there's an issue with taking Cymbalta w/Tramadol since both work on Seratonin. So I've been taking this T3 for 4 days now and I've had no pain relief, only severe stomach pains & drowsiness with total lack of motivation. I'll keep taking it to see if things improve once it gets in my system but so far I'm not impressed with using it for chronic joint pain. I have multiple bulging & torn discs + Osteoarthritis damage in entire spine, hips & hands, so my daily activities depend on my pain level and whether or not I can bend over without screaming. I do remember years ago T3 helped quite a bit with menstrual cramps but for me it has not yet helped with the mechanical pains associated with spinal & joint issues.

I just had 2 bone spurs shaved down, one on my bottom gum and one on my top gum in my mouth.. I have no bottom teeth at all and i only have 11 on top.... Throughout all of the teeth removing surgries i was on the 500mg vicodin which seemed to work ok and halfway decent. But with this surgery i was put on the tylenol 3 with codedine.. And all it does it dull it slightly but i've noticed it has made my knees hurt/achy and my whole leg hurt Which i dont understand But it could be working a little better on me. But at least it's dulling the pain in my mouth to where I can bear it. So i'm half and half with this medication. The time on medication is less than one month because i just had the surgery done going on 2 days ago.
