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 also used for more severe pain such as cancer pain and after surgery.[12] It is typically used either by mou...

what is the difference between yellow hydrocodone acetaminophen with 1096 and white pill same strength but u03. both say sub for norco
90 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...

Edrisol or edrisal
3 Replies RSS
Used to take for cramps. What was it? ## Is this still on the market? I used to take it for cramps ## Hello, Mel and Sandy! How are you both? Edrisal contained the active ingredient Phenacetin, however, it was banned by the FDA in 1983 due to the increased risk it caused of kidney failure and certain types of cancer. It is actually metabolized into Acetaminophen(Tylenol) so that is what it was replaced with in over the counter medications. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I wish they would research this some more and make any necessary changes. It really worked great for cramps. I don't know about you but it gave me a very euphoric feeling and feeling of well-being, but I never took more than absolutely needed.

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...

White Pill Watson 3369
5 Replies RSS
i dont really want to get messed up but do those watson 3369 pills make you feel high or is it just for head ache's? ## Acetaminophen (325 mg) + Butalbital (50 mg) + Caffeine (40 mg) is most commonly used to treat migraines and tension headaches. I personally haven't come across any statements on how it effects you, primarily because these medications can effect each person differently, where as some people get great results from taking it, but there are others that it just doesn't work the same for. Unfortunately, the only way to find out is to actually try it and be your own best judge. You can read more about it here: I hope this helps! ## I take this quite regularly for tension headaches. If it doesn't knock my headache, then I have to go with the stronger Sumatripta...

Hydrocodone pill that says u03

Has anyone seen a hydrocodone pill that has u03 on it? ## 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 af...

Watson 853 White or Yellow Pill
41 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...

white oblong pill with g551 imprint
1 Reply RSS
I found the same one lying around and compared it to meds in their correct bottles. This one is a "Premier Pain Reliever Acetaminophen, USP 500mg" ## Hi Victoria, Thanks for sharing this important information on the pill ID. I was just curious to find out if you knew who the manufacturer was? Details on this tablet seem to be rather sparse. Is it a product of the US? I did do some digging around and located a 500mg Acetaminophen liquid solution with the words "Premier Value" standing before it - though it was reportedly labeled by Chain Drug Consortium LLC and made by Aurohealth - So I don't know if there's any connection between the tablet and solution in that regard...

Is there anything else I can help with?

Is White Ip204 The Same As Yellow 10 325 E712
64 Replies RSS
i would like to know what is the diff. between ip204 white and yellow 10/325 e712 ## Hello, Based on my research, these two pills are the same in terms of their formulation. "Ip204" and "10 325 E712" both contain Acetaminophen and Oxycodone in the strength: 325 mg/10mg. Learn More: Acetaminophen + Oxycodone Details Please post back if you have any more questions about this medication, I hope the info helps! ## harleyman55 to Jenna Yes it says that but right off the ritger scale Oxycodone HCL contains 8.9637 mg of oxycodone never the full 10 mg. [1] Then after experiencing both generic companies (and sadly many more), IP 204 are complete junk! The Endocet Pharmaceutical is the same underlying company that makes the name brand Percocet which I've heard actually has the...
