Tylenol PM claims to relieve pain fast so that you can sleep and feel refreshed after a good nights rest. The main uses of Tylenol PM as recommended are for temporary relief of occasional headaches and minor aches and pains with accompanying sleeplessness.

Acetaminophen and Diphenhydramine are found in all three of the different forms of Tylenol PM. They both work as the active ingredients. Acetaminophen is found in many over the counter drugs for pain relief. Along with reducing fevers it basically relieves mild to moderate pain form headaches to reactions to vaccinations. The way it works is by changing the way the body senses pain and by cooling the body.
Diphenhydramine is associated more with symptoms the tome about when you have a cold. It works as a antihistamine, that basically deals with symptoms due to an allergic reaction. Diphenhydramine will relieve symptoms of these conditions but will not treat the cause of the symptoms or speed the recovery.
