Is Tylenol Vegan?

Updated: Aug 24

Here at VeganMed, we often get asked "Is Tylenol vegan?" "Is there a vegan acetaminophen product?" (and for our UK friends..."Is Panadol vegan?" "Is there a vegan paracetamol product?") Calling a medicine "vegan" gets tricky. The FDA requires animal testing during the research for new drugs. Since a vegan lifestyle abstains from the exploitation of animals, medicine is not technically vegan. However, it can be devoid of animal products, or animal-free.



Acetaminophen is an animal-free ingredient, however ingredients used within acetaminophen products may not be animal-free. Common ingredients found in acetaminophen products include magnesium stearate, glycerin, and shellac. Our researchers at VeganMed reviewed 4,721 different acetaminophen products and found only one verified animal-free acetaminophen product: Tylenol PM Extra Strength Caplets. We have confirmed with the manufacturer that none of the ingredients in this product are sourced from animals.
