Tylenol is available in a number of different formulations. It is sometimes mistakenly called a brand name for acetaminophen, but the point is that Tylenol can be a compound medication that consists of several substances, and acetaminophen is one of them. E.g., what is Tylenol 3? It is a compound analgetic that consists of 30 mg codeine phosphate and 300 mg acetaminophen. Of course, we cannot call Tylenol 3 a brand name for acetaminophen as it contains codeine, too.
