Discussions that mention tylenol

General Health board


Kind of a weird question, I know, but I can smell Tylenol when I take it. About the time that it's starting to kick in I get this weird sort of dusty smell in my nose. Does this happen to anyone else? Does anyone have any clue what could cause it? On rare occasions I smell it when I drink alcohol. I've had my liver function tested recently and it's fine so I don't know that it's my liver. Who knows though...?
i'm a pharmacy technician and i'm around medicine all day. I have never noticed anything with tylenol in it that has a strong smell. Just regular tylenol don't have one (not that i can smell). Have you checked the expiration date? I do know that outdated drugs of any kind tend to have a stronger smell the longer they sit around. If not, maybe your nose is just very sensitive to smell!
I can smell Tylenol (acetaminophen) after I take it too. I can't really describe the smell, its a weird smell though, only with acetaminophen, no other otc pain relievers cause this. I thought it was just me! I have no idea what causes this but there must be others, glad I am not alone.
Me too. I notice it more if I take tylenol on an empty stomach. I get more of a burn kind of.
