tylenol and but/apap//cf50-325-40 there a warning on my precrition bottle

I took 2 Tylenol 2 hours ago and then remembered that I have a prescription for migraine. How long do I have to wait before I can take my but/apap/cf50-325-40tab ## Hi Claire, Because Acetaminophen is the only active ingredient in Tylenol, I don't foresee any interactions between Tylenol and your prescription of Acetaminophen (325 mg) + Butalbital (50 mg) + Caffeine (40 mg). However, depending upon the dose of Tylenol you took, I would suggest waiting at least 4-6 hours before you start taking your prescription (as this is the recommended dosing interval within a 24hr period for dosages ranging from 325 - 650 mg). I hope this info helps to answer your question!
