Detailed Answer:
Hi..
Welcome to HEALTHCARE MAGIC..

I have gone through your query and can understand your concerns..

As per your complain Tylenol or Dristan both contain Acetaminophen that is a mild painkiller and fever reducer medicine..
It can be taken while a patient is on the medicines that you indicated above..
Although some moderate interaction can be seen but not severe, so caution to be taken is to not take the other medicine together with Tylenol..
I would still suggest you to talk to your treating physician aa he knows your complete medical history.
As of now Dristan or Tylenol can be taken without any problems..
Also consult your dentist as if there is still pain after Root Canal Treatment there is a possibility that there is re-infection or lingering previous infection that needs treatment..

Hope this information helps..

Thanks and regards.
