Tylenol 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...

Can you take Tylenol with diclofenac sod 100 mg sa tab?

Can you take Tylenol with Diclofenac sod 100mg to relieve lower back pain? ## From what I could gather, there are no drug interactions or contraindications listed between Tylenol and Diclofenac. So based on that information, you should be fine taking the two together without experiencing any such complications. The main concern with Tylenol (acetaminophen) in my honest opinion, is just staying within safe dosing limits, due to it's notorious reputation for causing liver damage at higher doses and/or when taken for a prolonged period of time. I hope this info helps. Get well soon! ## i am taking nexito forte is it any indication in blood result such as show hepetitise ## My Dr. said that taking a diclofenac and one tylenol and the same time boosts the pain relief. Anyone know anythin...

can i take tylenol 3 and norco at the same time
4 Replies RSS
Can I take a norco and Tylenol 3 at the same time I am passing kidney stones and in pain very bad pain!! ## No, you shouldn't combine them, that could cause you to ingest a toxic amount of Acetaminophen, since it's in both of these medications. Too much Acetaminophen could cause liver damage or liver failure and an overdose has the potential to be fatal. This 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. Additionally, you'd be doubling up on narcotics, since the Tylenol 3 contains Codeine and the Norco contains Hydrocodone. They can both cause depression of the central nervous system, which could cause shallow breathing, lowered heart rate and lowered blood p...

doctors who will prescribe pain medication in rhode island
218 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...

Doctors willing to prescribe heavy pain meds for my back and arthritis
2 Replies RSS
Naturally I have a high tolerance for pain meds and a low tolerance for alcohol. Going on 9 months no alcohol as a health choice. I went and had a MRI done a week ago and still waiting for the results. Ibuprofen 800 mg - no way am I taking that much crap every day. My doc said she doesn't prescribe pain meds. Funny... So I'm here, I'll have the updated scan on my back and hope to know a good doctor that can help me with a better value of life. I would just rather take a little bit of something that works than hundreds of milligrams Tylenol. Isn't Ibuprofen 800mg a pain killer? ## Pain meds addictive as we know. Lots of people that live with pain. From experience don't get regular refills of opiate, you'll pay the piper eventually...that day will come. That's ...

Stronger pain control than Tylenol #4
2 Replies RSS
I've been taking tylenol #4 with codeine for over 18 years now for pain management. I would like to know what is the next step up because its not as effective anymore. I currently take 12 tablets a day. ## Hello Thoyt! Wow! I'm sorry you're in so much pain. That's a lot of it to be taken in one day, you're exceeding the 3,000mgs daily limit issued by the FDA or Acetaminophen. This medication is classified as 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. The next step up would probably be Tramadol or Hydrocodone, with the first being the weakest and they latter being the strongest. Does anyone else have any suggestions? ## Codeine is not recommended for l...

tylenol 3 vs norco
2 Replies RSS
How many tylenol 3s equal a 10/325mg norco? ## Hello, Yoyo! How are you? Codeine is actually a very weak opiate, so it would take 66.67mgs of it to equal each 10mg Hydrocodone. But, you can't double up, without your doctor's permission, due to the Acetaminophen in them. Taking too much of it in any 24 hour period could result in fatal toxicity, liver damage or liver failure. The FDA lists 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? ## Why would a doctor switch a person that's been on Hydrocodone-Apap 7.5/325mg to Tylenol 3?

Is there a Tylenol #5 with codeine?
2 Replies RSS
I was given Tylenol #5 after I broke my nose... Immediately afterwards they became Vicodin, etc.. My housemate is an old nurse and I'm tired of her always insisting that she knows everything!!! There's got to be a place to look this up!!! ## Not that I am aware of, nor could I find anything about them on current FDA or NIH listings. What are the markings on the pills in question? This information would enable me to research them to see what they contain. Can you please post back and clarify? The FDA warns that these medications carry the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such nausea, dizziness, headache, constipation, and dry mouth. ## As far as I can tell, there's only Tylenol # 3 and # 4, listed here. Do you have the NDC code listed on your prescripti...

antacid diphen lido and tylenol
1 Reply RSS
I picked up this medication for my daughter but the print out paper didn't list side effects or anything. I was wondering if this was safe to take with tylenol? ## What is the specific antacid that is in it? I'm sorry, but I really can't provide an answer, without knowing more specifics. Tylenol can react negatively with many medications, so can you please post back and clarify? Thank you! The FDA lists the typical side effects of Tylenol as possibly including nausea, dizziness, and headache.
