How long does children's Tylenol stay in your system?

Acetaminophen: Each Tylenol #3 tablet contains 300 milligrams (mg) of acetaminophen. For most people, this amount of Tylenol has a half-life in the blood of 1.25 to 3 hours. All of the drug will have passed out through the urine within 24 hours. Note that this could take longer in someone who has a poor liver function.
