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...

Just stop Taking them and talk to your doctor. You will head in time. ## Spasmo Proxyvon contains Acetaminophen, Dicyclomine and Propoxyphene. Propoxyphene has been pulled from the market in many countries, due to the adverse effects it has on the heart. An addiction can be a serious problem, since the Propoxyphene is a narcotic.

arcedol

side affects, possible liver or kidney dammage ## Arcedol is a 3rd world product. Packaged in a blister pack, the tablet is white, center scored with no other markings. It is shipped and probably compounded in Costa Rica. From my experience, it does not contain the purported products - 500mg acetaminophen and 30mg codeine. It is promoted by Kiwi Drug of New Zealand but they have been unable or unwilling to provide any information to substantiate their claims of its contents or efficacy. Approach with caution! ## Narcologic Forte advertised on Kiwi Drugs is from India and has the same story. Do not use. ## Narcogin Forte is advertised on Kiwi Drugs and is from India with the same story.

2064 V 3 pill - taking two at a time
1 Reply RSS
I was wondering because I took an excedrin for my headache if I can also take two 2063 V pills containing 300mgs of acetaminophen + 30mgs of codeine phosphate? ## Both of these medications contain Acetaminophen, so there is a risk of overdose toxicity if you double up, according to FDA warnings. They state that you should not exceed 1,000mgs in an 8 period, and no more than 3,000mgs in any 24 hour period. Exceeding that risks overdose toxicity, which may include stomach ulceration, liver damage, liver failure, or death. Is there anything else I can help with?

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 the difference between yellow hydrocodone acetaminophen with 1096 and white pill same strength but u03. both say sub for norco
58 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...

139 Replies RSS
i have a teenager and i found an oblong peach pill with 3605 on one side and a v on the other side help ## The pill which you are describing is Acetaminophen + Hydrocodone (325 mg - 7.5 mg). 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. If it isn't perscribed to you, leave it alone. Addiction is a vicious cycle that often ends in death. Is losing your life worth a high? think about it.... ## Stephan, she's worried that her kid is using the pill. She ...

what is this white p500 pill
Post a Reply
If the pill is a white oval with P500 on one side and nothing on the other then it is (Equate extra strength pain reliever/fever reducer acetaminophen 500mg) I'm literally getting ready to take 2 of them after I'm done typing this. If it's a white oval pill that has "P" on one side and "500" on the opposite side then and ONLY THEN is it a ciprofloxacin... PLEASE if you're not 100% on what a medication is call your local ER (Emergency Room) and they will 9/10 let you know what it is rather than listen to people who are misleading and could VERY WELL get you or your loved one KILLED!!!

Flat round white pill with tcl on top, line down the middle and 340 on the bottom. I found it in my car and am not sure if it's just a tylenol or something I was prescribed and dropped? ## Yes, this tablet is manufactured by Time-Cap Labs and they list it as containing 325mgs of Acetaminophen, which is a generic, or store brand of Tylenol. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, and headache. Is there anything else I can help with?
