Here in Canada, you can get Tylenol 1 or 222's over the counter. Anyone know about europe? UK specifically?

Tylenol 1, 2, 3, and 4 are low grade acetominophin painkillers with an increasing amount of codeine added as an additional pain med.


Codeine is highly addictive, and in the same family as hydrocodone, percocet, Oxycontin, and Lortab.


And you Canucks can get #1's OTC? Damn! :D

It's not addictive. I can quit any time I want!

Tylenol 1 or 222's (same amount of codeine as Tylenol 1, except with asperin) is pretty weak compared to the more common Tylenol 3's which you get when you get a root canal or whatnot. Of course you could just take like 6 at a time.

Hands down, its the best way to eliminate those hangover pains.

hi, i dont know what grade tylenol this equates to but in the UK the best u can get over the chemist counter, without a script, is co-codamol. this has paracetamol (acetaminophen - is that how u spell it!?!!?!?) plus 8mg codeine per tablet. 2 tablets gives u the max amount of paracetamol u can safely have at one time so u can therefore only have 16mg codeine every 6 hours. otherwise A&E depts (ER) will prob. write a traveller a script in an emergency. hope this helps, dont know about rest of europe.
