Tylenol 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...

Can I take tylenol extra strength 500mg and the anxiety tablet clonazepam 1mg together? Please reply. I want to know if it's safe? ## They can be taken together, as long as your medical professional approves. The NIH warns that Clonazepam carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, and irritability. Is there anything else I can help with?

tylenol with opana

Taking opana ER 5 mg and 5 mg opana for breakthrough is not really helping. Can I take tylenol as well? ## They can be taken together, unless you've been instructed not to mix them. The FDA warns that these medications may carry the risk of being habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, constipation, and dry mouth. Are you on any other medications? What medical condition is being treated?

pill imprint gpi a5 - tylenol?
Post a Reply
My daughter gave me what she says is a Tylenol. It has "gpi" on top, then a line and at the bottom it has "a5". It made me sleepy. I've taken Tylenol before but it never caused drowsiness before. What is it?

5mg oxyxodone w 500 tylenol addiction
1 Reply RSS
How long can my sister take this 5 mg oxycodone w/500 mg tylenol med safely? She just had surgery to re-align fractures in both her radius & Luna and replace her shattered elbow. Her pain level is extremely high (rating 1 to 10, she is a 15) ## How long she can safely take it is entirely up to her doctor. The FDA does warn that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, constipation, and dry mouth. However, currently, there are no doses on the market that contain more than 325mgs of Acetaminophen. Are you sure of what she's taking? Did you mean her ulna? Is she on any other medications?

How many regular Tylenol equals one Hydrocodone?
1 Reply RSS
I know a person that took a higher than recommended dose of Tylenol and they said that it equals up to 1 Hydrocodone. ## Hi Ann - There is no real equivalent dose between Tylenol (ingredient name Acetaminophen) versus Hydrocodone. They are two completely different drugs, plus the Acetaminophen is not even an opiate medication like Hydrocodone is. In fact, taking too much Acetaminophen puts the body at great risk of liver damage! So I hope that your friend is okay! There are some drugs which contain a combination of Acetaminophen + Hydrocodone (such as Vicodin and Norco), but in those drugs they act together. So as I mentioned, it is never a good idea to try and take a therapeutic equivalent of Hydrocodone by using Acetaminophen. I hope this helps and best wishes!

doctors who will prescribe pain medication in rhode island
178 Replies RSS
I am looking for an MD or Pain clinic that will prescribe pain medication in Rhode Island. I have 4 herniated discs, nerve damage in my leg, severe migraines. My former Md said that he could not longer prescribe due to the regulations, I dont want to have to move, that would be crazy to have to go through that, but I also do not want to continue living night and day in Agony, with not one Md that has any compassion, it seems all they care about is to look out for themselves, I only take 2 pain medications that I believe are both in class 1, but when you talk to a doctor about pain, they tell you to take tylenol. I am tired of theses doctors just caring about themselves, if you have a patient like myself, that has the MRI's and Catscans to show what my pain level is, they should be a...

need help identifying a pill
5 Replies RSS
pill, white, round, stamped with APO MOD 200 ## Its a small round pill that's white.On one side it has 123 and on the other it has MP 20. I found it on the floor and I dont know if its some Tylenol or something ## Most likely: MP 20, Ergoloid, used to improve circulation, memory & cognition in elderly. Have not been able to confirm the '123' ## NOTE: there seems to be some confusion as to which pill is being ID'd in this thread. My posts refer specifically to the white, round tablet with MP 20 on one side and 123 on the reverse. Most "MP 20" are ergoloid. However there is an outside chance especially in Canada that it is methylphenidate (Ritalin), a stimulant used for ADHD, sleep disorders, etc. See page: sante.canoe.ca/drug/getdrug/pms-methylphenidate ## Con...

what does generic tylenol 3 look like
4 Replies RSS
i found a pill tylenol looks like regular or genaric but some one told me it was a hospital tylenole 3 does a tylenol 3 have no marking? and its long like a tablet ## Hello, Amy! How are you? No, even the ones dispense in hospitals have markings on them. Tylenol 3 contains Acetaminophen and Codeine, it is 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. It is available only by prescription and all manufactured prescription medications in the U.S. are require to have markings to enable their identification, in case of emergency, even in a hospital setting. That said, that means it is an over the counter product and from the description, I agree with you on what it most likely c...

Post a Reply
Last night at the er i was given a shot of demeral and was given to take home 6 tylenol3.

Shortly it started to kick in and it caused my stomack are to cramp so bad that i couldnt relax in my bed unless i was in a very weird possition with my legs to take preasure off but it was hurting my back. Ive also had gastric bypass and along with that 4 surgeries related to it. I dont know why this reaction happened and was hoping i could get some insight.
