Acetaminophen Overview

Paracetamol, also known as acetaminophen or APAP, is a medication used to treat pain and fever.[1] It is typically used for mild to moderate pain.[1] The quality of the evidence regarding the use for fever relief in children is poor.[11] It is often sold in combination with other ingredients such as in many cold medications.[1] 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...

what is the difference between yellow hydrocodone acetaminophen with 1096 and white pill same strength but u03. both say sub for norco
70 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...

flustat capsule
5 Replies RSS
Am 43 years old and one month pregnant can I take flustat ## Based on my research, Flu-Stat Capsules contain the following active ingredients: (Acetaminophen + Caffeine + Chlorpheniramine Maleate + Phenylephrine Hydrochloride + Vitamin C). When it comes to pregnancy, it's usually best to discuss which drugs are safe with your doctor first, in case he or she has special instructions outside of the norm. However from what I could gather, Acetaminophen is believed to be safe in pregnancy when used intermittently for short durations. Chlorpheniramine and Phenylephrine on the other hand are only recommended for use during pregnancy when benefits outweigh risk. For reasons like this I would also suggest getting a second opinion from your doctor. I don't think you can ever be too safe ...

combiflame
3 Replies RSS
wt are the side effects if we take 6 combiflame at a time ## Combiflam contains Acetaminophen and Ibuprofen, so depending on the dosage, yes, taking that many at a time, especially if you add more throughout the day can be seriously harmful. It is very dangerous to exceed 4grams (4000mgs) of Acetaminophen in a day, so if your tablets contain 500mgs of Acetaminophen each, then you are already at 3grams (3000mgs) just taking 6 tablets, so if you add more then you are going over the maximum safe daily amount, Acetaminophen is very dangerous in large quantities, it can cause severe organ damage and death. ## i want to die. so please let me know hiw many combiflam can i take?? ## I took 5 combiflam tablets in one go..i am 14. I was under stress..till now i dont feel high or anything..but wil...

Does acetaminophen contain aspirin?
1 Reply RSS
I am on warfarin and I cannot take anything that thins blood. I am having trouble finding out if tylenol has aspirin in it. Please respond. ## No, Acetaminophen is the active ingredient in them, there is no Aspirin in it. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, and headache. Are you on any other medications?

Hydro pill that says u03
62 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.

Blue Football Shape Pill l346 on it
4 Replies RSS
Tell me what kind of pill that looks like a football blue in color with l346 on it ## I can't say for sure, but this is most likely an over the counter sleeping aide. There doesn't seem to be a definitive ID for this pill online, but usually, when the imprint starts with an L, in the way you described it, then it is an over the counter type of Acetaminophen or Tylenol with Diphenhydramine. Hopefully someone else on here who has it in their possession can post something more affirming. ## Blue pill shape like a football with line across it says 44386 what is it ## Blue pill shape like a football with line across it says 44386 ## Have found pill blue football shaped with nothing on one side and L368 on other side. Is this Xanax and what strength if it is?

Watson 853 White or Yellow Pill
40 Replies RSS
I've been taking the Watson 853 yellow hydro /acetaminophen for several years. I get them from a well known pharmacy company. My most recent script was filled and I noticed the color was white, even though the markings of Watson 853 are identical to the light yellow pill. There was a huge difference in side effects with the new pill; constipation, dry mouth, and a little nasal congestion that I typically get from preservatives like sulfites. Many people get these symptoms when taking narcotics, but I have been fortunate with the hydrocodone as it has never affected me that way (oxycodone does however) I called the pharmacist and he said he couldn't get the yellow tabs anymore but wouldn't say one way or the other whether the formulation or fillers in the white pill differ fr...
