Acetaminophen Overview

Paracetamol, also known as acetaminophen and APAP, is a medicine used to treat pain and fever.[1] It is typically used for mild to moderate pain relief.[1] Evidence for its use to relieve fever in children is mixed.[11][12] It is often sold in combination with other medications, such as in many cold medications.[1] In combination with opioid pain medication, paracetamol is also used for severe pain such as cancer ...

Has anyone seen a hydrocodone pill that has u03 on it? ## There actually are white oval-shaped pills marked with U03 that are identified as Acetaminophen and Hydrocodone bitartrate (325/10mg). Manufacturer: Aurolife Pharma LLC These pills do seem to be uncommon though, as I rarely even hear mention of them among all the other brands on the market. Learn More: Acetaminophen + Hydrocodone I hope this info helps! ## Just got refill & it was these U03's. They are pretty weak compared to the former "Lortab" however they are controlling my pain somewhat... ## The.e weaker? I had never seen them before today. At 1st, I thought pharmacy gave me wrong med until I googled it. It should be basically same thing; However, have you noticed the change in the name & came outright af...

Watson 3369 Round White Pill

What is a round white pill marked Watson 3369? ## This tablet contains 325mgs of Acetaminophen, 50mgs Butalbital and 40mgs of Caffeine. This is a generic for Fioricet, commonly used to treat migraine and tension headaches. Some of the most common side effects include: dizziness, drowsiness, nausea and abdominal pain. ## Is the pill watson 3369 like a pain killer? Does it give the same effect as vicodin? ## Why does the pill have watson imprinted on the back? ## Aunt b, The Watson imprint on the tablet only represents the name of the particular pharmaceutical manufacturer. Without a drug ID code, the name itself means very little. ## Aunt b, Sameoldbs is right. Now i know i take fioricet. It is a form of narcotic, however it won't make you feel euphoric like norco unless its fioricet...

AZ 285 round white pill

Anyone know what this pill could be? ## While David's ID is correct for AZ 235, there is another over the counter pill which is round and white and DOES contain the inscription AZ 285 on it. (NDC 50066-285). It appears to be a generic form of Excedrin Migraine. Active Ingredients: - Acetaminophen 250 mg - Aspirin 250 mg - Caffeine 65 mg Inactive Ingredients: - Corn Starch - Hypromelloses - Polyethylene Glycols - Stearic Acid - Titanium Dioxide - Povidones - Sodium Starch Glycolate Type a Potato Because this is an over the counter product, it may be labeled and marketed from a number of different manufacturers under multiple NDC codes as well. ## Based on the description provided, I think you may have meant to say "235" as opposed to "285"?

Flustat capsule

I am 43 years old and one month pregnant. Can I take flustat? ## Based on my research, Flu-Stat Capsules contain the following active ingredients: (Acetaminophen + Caffeine + Chlorpheniramine Maleate + Phenylephrine Hydrochloride + Vitamin C). When it comes to pregnancy, it's usually best to discuss which drugs are safe with your doctor first, in case he or she has special instructions outside of the norm. However from what I could gather, Acetaminophen is believed to be safe in pregnancy when used intermittently for short durations. Chlorpheniramine and Phenylephrine on the other hand are only recommended for use during pregnancy when benefits outweigh risk. For reasons like this I would also suggest getting a second opinion from your doctor. I don't think you can ever be too s...

Edrisol or edrisal

Used to take for cramps. What was it? ## Is this still on the market? I used to take it for cramps ## Hello, Mel and Sandy! How are you both? Edrisal contained the active ingredient Phenacetin, however, it was banned by the FDA in 1983 due to the increased risk it caused of kidney failure and certain types of cancer. It is actually metabolized into Acetaminophen(Tylenol) so that is what it was replaced with in over the counter medications. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I wish they would research this some more and make any necessary changes. It really worked great for cramps. I don't know about you but it gave me a very euphoric feeling and feeling of well-being, but I never took more than absolutely needed. ## I took it also, back in the 60’s. It made me VERY ALE...

bioflu and alcohol side effect

What will be the effect if I take Biolflu and drink beer. Is there any negative effect or will I fall asleep? ## Hello, Mar! How are you? One of the ingredients in Bioflu is Acetaminophen and due to how harsh it can be on your liver, it should never be combined with alcohol, according to the NIH. Doing so creates the risk of liver damage or failure. And yes, it could also cause you to experience more dizziness and drowsiness than usual. Is there anything else I can help with? ## My husband took Bioflu and after a minute went by, he also drank a little Emperador light brandy. Then I noticed that he got a red thing on his skin - What may be the side effects of these two substances? ## I had 2 glasses of bubbly champagne with colleagues.
