    anyone would willingly take Tylenol.  I've taken Tylenol 3 for severe pain, occasionally, just because it has codeine in it...but Tylenol simply does not work.  I've tried it, and an hour later, my pain is not in the least bit relieved.

    Ibuprophen is great; aspirin is great.  But Tylenol?  fuggeddaboudit.

    (& I read somewhere, years ago, that it doesn't work on roughly 40% of the population...of which I guess I'm one.)

    So I can't understand why doctors keep pushing it.
