What is the difference between TYLENOL® Extra Strength Caplets and TYLENOL® Extra Strength Coated Tablets?
TYLENOL® Extra Strength Coated Tablets are round, red tablets with a sugar coating. Both products contain the same active ingredient, 500mg of acetaminophen.

What are opioids? Are all over-the-counter(OTC) TYLENOL® products “Opioid-Free,” or just TYLENOL® Extra Strength Coated Tablets?
Opioids are a class of prescription medications used to treat acute, severe pain. The active ingredient in all over-the-counter single ingredient, TYLENOL® products is acetaminophen. Acetaminophen is not an opioid.
