Acetaminophen Overview

Paracetamol, also known as acetaminophen or APAP, is a medication used to treat pain and fever.[10] It is typically used for mild to moderate pain.[10] There is poor evidence for fever relief in children.[11] It is often sold in combination with other ingredients such as in many cold medications.[10] In combination with opioid pain medication, paracetamol is used for more severe pain such as cancer pain and after surgery.[12] It is typically used either by mouth or rectally but is also availa...

What is a red capsule with a white stripe in the middle with a L above stripe and a 2 below the stripe? ## I found a red capsule with a white stripe in the middle. The letter L on one side and the number 2 on the other. Can anyone please tell me what this is? I see a few people have asked the same question. ## Is it an actual capsule or would it be considered a caplet? If it is a caplet with this marking, then it appears to contain 500mgs of Acetaminophen and is a generic or store brand of Tylenol Rapid Release, commonly used to treat pain, fever and swelling. Common side effects can include: nausea, drowsiness, headache and stomach irritation. Learn more: ## I fpund one ,and it waswalgreens tension headache relief ( acetaminophen 500mg and caffeine 65mg.

Hydro pill that says u03
48 Replies RSS
Has anyone seen a hydro thats u03 ## There actually are white oval-shaped pills marked with U03 that are identified as Acetaminophen and Hydrocodone bitartrate (325/10mg). Manufacturer: Aurolife Pharma LLC These pills do seem to be uncommon though, as I rarely even hear mention of them among all the other brands on the market. Learn More: Acetaminophen + Hydrocodone I hope this info helps! ## Just got refill & it was these U03's. They are pretty weak compared to the former "Lortab" however they are controlling my pain somewhat... ## The.e weaker? I had never seen them before today. At 1st, I thought pharmacy gave me wrong med until I googled it. It should be basically same thing; However, have you noticed the change in the name & came outright after it changed to cla...

what is this p500 pill
4 Replies RSS
It's a white oval pill with P500 on one side and blank on the other. Sites are showing me pink oval pills like that that are acetaminophen/propoxyphene but none white, and other sites are coming up with a white oval pill with P on one side and 500 on the other as an antibiotic. ## Just out of curiosity Tai, whereabouts did you get it from? My research also yields the same two examples you already mentioned. It seems strange that something with what appears to be a common imprint can't be easily identified when others of similar description can. Pliva Inc. is the manufacturer of the Acetaminophen/propoxyphene napsylate (pink version). And part of me wonders if their tablet used to be white at one point or another, as I understand manufacturers may alter shapes and colors without ...

Watson 3203 Orange
3 Replies RSS
Is Watson discontinuing the 7.5-325 pill ## WATSON 3203 is identified as Acetaminophen 325mg + Hydrocodone bitartrate 7.5mg. From what I could gather, Watson's website still lists this medication on their product page. However the color and shape are different than what you described. So I do believe they stopped making the orange one. Watson 3203 is now a white capsule shaped pill with the following National Drug Code (NDC): 00591-2605-01. The dosage does remain the same though. Ref: actavis.com/en/Products The National Drug Code (NDC) for the orange tablet is: 00591-3203, but this is no longer listed on their webpage. You can learn more about this drug on the page for Acetaminophen + Hydrocodone Details I hope this info helps to answer your question! ## For some odd reason, my Wat...

what is the difference between yellow hydrocodone acetaminophen with 1096 and white pill same strength but u03. both say sub for norco
53 Replies RSS
Just want to know difference between both pills, beside Manufacturers. I was taking Hydocodone-Acetaminophen 10-325 yellow pill #1096 on one side a V on other side. I was then switched to a white oval pill with the same strength, but has U03 on one side. both say substituted for Norco. ## Hello, Chula! How are you? That is the only difference. When a medication is available for generic production, it is usually manufactured by several different companies, because this creates market competition to help keep prices down. The FDA classifies this medication as being a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Even though both are ge...

Acetaminophen + Hydrocodone is a combination of two types of pain medicine to treat moderate to severe pain. For more information about this drug, please refer to the link below... If you have any more questions or concerns, please post back and I will be happy to help you. ## If you "find" pills and do not know what they are for, it is best to flush them and walk away.
