Is Tylenol 4 going to help me sleep at night? I have been taking Norco and then Lortab with very little pain relief. I am also taking Robaxin and Neurontin. I just need a good nights sleep which I haven't had in 3 months.


  • Tylenol is not a sleep medication....it may put a small dent in your pain. But Norco and Lortab...(same thing...both are hydrocodone and acetaminophen)

    So if they didn't help...than this isn't likely to.

    And most of the time...an opiate can even have the opposite effect of having someone feel "awake" or "wired"...

    If anything...the muscle relaxer you take, the Robaxin, usually causes a bit of fatigue/sleepiness in people.

    What about all the natural remidies? Melatonin....Sleepy time tea....Making sure you don't rest/nap during the day...

    Make sure your room is cool enough...68 degrees or less...

    And turn off ALL electronics....TV...computer...phone....at LEAST an hour or two before bed time...As well as make sure nothing is "blinking" from any of those devices....the room completely dark.

    No caffeine, alcohol, or cigarettes 6 hours before bed.

    And keeping the exact same bed time and wake time every day...including weekends....

    These are all things that can naturally help...
  • look into magnesium citrate also....

    magnesium and calcium work together to relax muscles,

    avoid sweet things at night,

    I take some magnesium with half a cup of warm milk before bedtime,

    it helps me relax....

    it is not a mgic bullet but it does help....

    ans since it is natural it also helps my health....
