Can you become addicted to nighttime pain relievers? I have been taking Tylenol PM for a sleeping problem, but I worry about taking too much.
Neither ingredient in Tylenol PM (acetaminophen and diphenhydramine) is considered addicting.
Nonetheless, the label warns against taking this medicine for more than 10 days without a doctor's supervision.
