    The tablet is a Canadian "222" made by Johnson & Johnson - Merck Consumer. The pill contains 375 mg aspirin, 30 mg (or 15 mg) caffeine and 8 mg codeine phosphate. It's an over-the-counter medication in Canada.

    I'm not sure about the amount of caffeine. Two databases (one governmental) say 30 mg and another source says 15 mg. And a quick internet search brought up online pharmacies who state it's 15 mg caffeine.

    I'm not a pharmacist or a medical doctor. This message is not medical advice, nor is at an offer to provide medical advice. All drug identifications should be validated by a licensed MD or pharmacist.

      Is this considered stronger than the codone pills that you recieve in the states?

        Codeine in the US is available by Rx only and doesn't contain caffeine. Tylenol 3's are 30mg, T4's are 60mg both with 300mg of apap, McNeil may still make T1 and T2's which are 7.5 and 15mgs.
