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...

Questions about friends OD (READ BELOW)

My friend died from a Tylenol overdose. She took 16g of 500mg extra strength. She lived the first time she tried, but a couple months later, she took Tylenol again and her liver shut down and died soon after. What are the chances of dying of the same pill with the same dosage? First time she took 16g, second time she took 10g and her liver shut down. I read that 16g isn't lethal to some people? She was a little heavyset but in her weight/height range for her age. I'm just wondering if because of the first overdose - even though she lived, set up her death with the second overdose because she took the same pills with the same dosage, just a different amount. ## Acetaminophen/Tylenol/Paracetamol has the potential to cause fatal overdose toxicity in amounts exceeding 4,000mgs (4gs)...

can i take a tylenol 3 with clonazepam
3 Replies RSS
Is it safe to take 6mg of clonazapam with 300 mg of Tylenol 3 or do these drugs cause an interaction? ## That is WAY too much climax roam to take at one time. The dosages manufactured currently are 0.5mg, 1mg & 2mg. MAYBE if you had severe issues and had been on benzodiazepines for a while your side may reach 6mg a day but never at once dear. ## Can I take a Tylenol 3 with a Klonopin .5. Is this safe ? ## According to the University of Maryland Medical Center (umm.edu / drug interaction tool), there are interactions listed between Klonopin (Clonazepam) and the Codeine found in Tylenol 3. The statement goes on to note that taking the two together is usually not recommended (but may be required in some cases - whereas your doctor may adjust the dosage and/or frequency of dosing in ord...

Tylenol 4 vs Norco 5/325 efficacy
1 Reply RSS
Switched pain doctors and went from Tylenol-4 four times a day to Norco 5/325 four times a day. Will the level of pain relief be the same, less or more? ## It really depends on how it works for you. Have you tried it, yet? According to NIH conversion tablets, you'd need 9mgs of Hydrocodone (Norco) to be equal to each Tylenol 4 you were taking. The FDA warns that this medications carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and constipation.

white round pill with DRA on one side
1 Reply RSS
I found a white round un-coated tablet, about 1mm in diameter. It has DRA imprinted on one side and a score on the other side. Im just curious as to what it is as I have never seen anything like it before, I initially thought it was a stray tylenol because of its plain appearance. ## That's a children's Dramamine pill. It contains 25mgs of Dimenhydrate, it is used to treat or prevent motion sickness and vertigo. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including dizziness, drowsiness, and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with?

doctors who will prescribe pain medication in rhode island
150 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...

Can you take Tylenol with diclofenac sod 100 mg sa tab?
9 Replies RSS
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...
