I have been taking 5-500 acetaminophen for my rheumatoid for a few years now with no issues and good blood test results every 3 to 5 months. My new insurance company just changed it to 3-325. I've taken about 80 over the past few weeks and have developed thick red painful rashes on my thighs and waist at belt line. They are made by a different company as well. I made doctor appointmntment but its 4.5 weeks away. Any advice or thoughts. this is the only change in my diet or medicine I can think of.

Hello, Danny! How are you? Sorry about the problem that you're having.

Actually, your insurance company cannot change your medication and/or dosage. That can only be approved by your doctor, even if there is something that they don't cover, or something is unavailable, any change must go through your doctor.

As to why you've been given the 5/325, it's because the ones with the higher amounts of Acetaminophen are no longer available, they have all been removed from the market.

As to the rash, it would be very unusual for one caused by a medication to be isolated to just that area, so this does need to be checked out. Over a month is far too long to wait, have you informed them of the problem to see if they can fit you in sooner?

Yeah, any pain medication from Mallickrodt is complete and utter JUNK. I believe they only put about 1% of the actual pain medication in them, someone is siphoning this co. of the main ingredient and making a killing somewhere. Just my opinion of course.
