Paracetamol 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...

I drink more or less 40 stilpanes per day. Do I need help or can I qui on my own? ## Stilpane contains 320mgs of Paracetamol, 8mgs of Codeine, 32mgs of Caffeine and 150mgs of Meprobamate and if you have been taking that many, then you may be i serious medical danger and you should see a doctor immediately. Aside from the addiction factor, the Paracetamol can be toxic is taken in amounts over 4gramgs (4,000mgs) in a day and if you are taking 40 of them, then that is 12,800mgs, or 12.8grams, which is way past the toxic level. You may have already caused permanent damage to your liver and other vital organs and need to seek medical attention. Are there any other questions or comments? ## I had a cyct removed from my brain and I am now addicted to still pain. If I do not have the tablets I ...

white pill with jsc on it from mexico

Tylex cd, just got these factory sealed .made by janssen-cilag in mexico 500mg paracetamol 30mg codeine , so basically t3's here in the states ## Hi Mike, Just curious, does this require a prescription down in Mexico or do pharmacies there dispense standard pharmaceuticals over the counter? I realize they treat medications totally different in other countries and with ever-rising drug costs here in the US I can only imagine how many Americans travel south for more affordable treatment options. Also, I read that Janssen-Cilag is a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson pharmaceuticals; who's headquarters are based at: Canoa 79, 01090 Ciudad de México, Ciudad de México - so they do appear to be a legitimate drug manufacturer. If anyone is looking to verify their medication,...

what detox can i take to stop my addiction from stilpane
8 Replies RSS
Hi is there a specific product in the market that I can use to stop my stilpane addiction???? ## Hi sherry, From what I've read, Stilpane contains 370mgs of Paracetamol, 185mgs of Meproamate, and 8mgs of Codeine. And if you have been taking them everyday for an extended period of time, there are actually two possible problems you should be aware of. This first is that Codeine is a narcotic, so it can be habit forming and addicting. A sudden cessation of it, in such instances, may cause serious withdrawal effects, such as fever, chills, nausea and vomiting. However, the most concerning ingredient for those with an addiction to the medication, is actually the Paracetamol. Based on my research, long-term use of just regular amounts can still cause liver and kidney damage. That said, it...

i need to know more about Tamol x-255 ## This is a controlled release formulation of Paracetamol/Acetaminophen, which is used to treat pain, fever and headaches. Common side effects may include: nausea, dizziness and stomach irritation. Learn more: Are there any other questions? ## This is bulls***! Tamol-X 225 is a narcotic analgesic used for moderate to severe pain, primarily for cancer patients. The active constituent is Tramadol Hydrochloride 225 mg and it's not a time-release form. It's manifactured in India by a drug company called Royal International among other anti-cancer medications. ## Buongiorno, mi hanno tolto un rene per un cancro, posso prendere tamol x come antidolorifico? Se lo prendo posso avere problemi avendo un solo rene?

pne blue oval pill
2 Replies RSS
Blue oval pill with pne imprint on one side ## Hi marie, Based on the description provided, I did find a photograph suggesting that it may be a medication by the name of "Desienfriol-D 24Tab" that originates from Mexico. Desienfriol reportedly contains: Clorfenamina (2mg) + Fenilefrina (5mg) + Paracetamol (500mg). Apparently it's marketed for similar uses as Mucinex is here in the States. Another individual had also depicted their Desienfriol as being elliptical (oval) & blue with PNE on one side, and I haven't seen anything else quite like it, so this is the best match I could locate in my own investigation. Hope this helps! ## I have 2 PNE pills but don't know how to send a picture

antibiotic for fever and cold

I am having mild fever with cough and cold and running nose since 4 days. Taken paracetamol & Leon but fever is not going and also the cold. ## A cold is caused by a virus, so an antibiotic will not help with that. An antibiotic will only help with a bacterial infection. The NIH lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash, and diarrhea. Is there anything else I can help with?
