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

doctors who will prescribe pain medication in rhode island
187 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 I take Tylenol with Naproxen
1 Reply RSS
I took 2 Naproxen 200mg earlier today. Can i take 2 Tylenol tabs for a slight headache? ## Since both medications can be used to treat the same conditions, it is best not to combine them, unless your doctor instructs you to do so. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, increased risk of bleeding, and stomach irritation. How are you doing? Was there any change to the headache? Are you on any other medications?

The magnesium sterate is it plant based or pork ? ## Where can I find Hydroocodone made by Watson in Atlanta GA. Is Watson still manufacturing them since they lowered the Tylenol dosage? ## @Peggy, Based on my research, Watson doesn't appear to list these types of details on their webpage. However, what I am finding is that most drug manufacturers who do use Magnesium stearate as a filler in their tablets, also derive/source it from beef. If you have any reservations about this, it may be best to talk with your doctor or pharmacist about any allergies you might have to certain types of animal products. This way problems like that can be avoided in subsequent prescriptions. For additional product information you can also reach the manufacturer directly at: +1 (800) 272-5525 @Rebecca,...

Taking tylenol #3 with hydrocodone
1 Reply RSS
I took two Tylenol #3 and 4 hours later took a hydrocodone. Will I be ok to go to bed? Or will it hurt me? ## Did you experience any adverse effects? How are you doing? What was the dosage of the Hydrocodone? There is a risk of depression of the central nervous system, according to FDA reports. There is a chance that you may experience Acetaminophen toxicity, if too much of it is taken in any 8 hour period. Can you please post back and let us all know how you are doing? Do you take any other medications?

can you take tylenol pm 2qty, 10hrs after taking a muscle relaxer?
5 Replies RSS
I'm having very bad tooth pain n swelling in upper mouth from lip to close to right ear last couple days. I took a few ibuprofen today n really wasnt working then i took a muscle relaxer at 2pm (10hrs n 48mins) ago. It kinda helped a little so I laid back down for a few hrs. can I take 2 Tylenol PMS now? (I already did tho like 20mins ago r so) is that OK?? thnx ## Hello, Joe! How are you? Did you suffer any adverse effects? The main concern would be the sedation that can be caused by the Diphenhydramine in the Tylenol PM and the sedation that the muscle relaxant can cause, but that many hours apart, in theory, there shouldn't be any severe issues. But you may be more tired and dizzy than usual, you may also experience dry mouth and nausea. ## No I didnt,but yes it did make me a...

Switching from Tylenol with Codeine to Norco 7.5/325mg
1 Reply RSS
How long should I wait before switching from Tylenol with Codeine to Norco 7.5? I took 2 Tylenol at about 10 a.m. When can I switch to Norco? I've been on Tylenol with Codeine for years and the pain has gotten worse... ## Usually, unless your doctor or pharmacist has instructed otherwise, you can do a clean switch at the next dosing schedule. The FDA warns that these medications carry the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, constipation, and dry mouth. the Norco is stronger than the Codeine, so it would be best not to double up, until you see how it is going to affect you. How often have you been instructed to take it?

how many tylenol 4 are equal to one percocet 5-325
1 Reply RSS
I have fibromyalgia and chronic back pain. My pain mgmt Dr took me off Percocet 5-325 and put me on Tylenol 4. Will I have better pain control now? ## In my opinion there are way too many variables within your question(s) for anyone to give an honest and helpful answer. Because we all react/respond differently, the only true way to find an accurate answer would be for you to go through trial & error and formulate your own opinion. Not only are we comparing doses here, but also the effects of binders/fillers (that some patients may have sensitivities to) altering absorption rates or bioavailability; Not to mention the Percocets contain varying percentages of their main active ingredient from manufacturer to manufacturer... (For example, on NIH.gov's website the Percocet [brand na...

U 37 Pill - Tylenol 4?
1 Reply RSS
I thought Codeine pills had to show the strength on the other side like #3 or #4? What is U 37? ## No, it is entirely up to the manufacturer, they do not have to show any specific thing, it is just required that they have an imprint and file it with the FDA in order to enable identification, in case of emergency. The tablet in question is manufactured by Aurolife Pharma and they list it as containing 60mgs of Codeine and 300mgs of Acetaminophen. The NIH warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with?
