Percogesic The Caplet

Comments Submitted Says:

I remember Percogesic as the orange pill Acetaminophen, The Percogesic I purchased today is a white caplet with Magnesium salicylate tetahydrate 580 ms (NSAID). As I remember the orange Percogesic in not an NSAID. Someone please tell me why the change and can I still get the orange pill. I have taken the orange Percogesic for 40 yrs and this is the only pill that would take my head ache away. Any information would help. Thank you.

As to Acetaminophen, if that is what helps your headaches, have you tried taking Tylenol, since it also contains Acetaminophen?

Its typical side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache, and stomach irritation.

The active ingredients in Percogesic have changed several times, I am not sure why, and I believe different formulas might still be available, but I'm not sure.

Does anyone else know more about it?
