Acetaminophen Overview

Paracetamol, also known as acetaminophen or 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 pain and pain after surgery.[13] It is typically used either by mouth or rectally...

Difference between yellow hydrocodone acetaminophen with 1096 vs white pill same strength but u03. Both say sub for norco.

Just want to know difference between both pills, beside Manufacturers. I was taking Hydocodone-Acetaminophen 10-325 yellow pill #1096 on one side a V on other side. I was then switched to a white oval pill with the same strength, but has U03 on one side. both say substituted for Norco. ## Hello, Chula! How are you? That is the only difference. When a medication is available for generic production, it is usually manufactured by several different companies, because this creates market competition to help keep prices down. The FDA classifies this medication as being a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Even though both are ge...

Oval white pill with 553 on one side

Can't find what these two pills are. Found them in a car. It's an oval shaped white pill with 553 on one side and blank on the other. ## I also found two white oblong pills with 533 only on one side no markings on the other. Can you identify them for me please? Thank you for your time ## @Tina -- Is there any chance that the imprint is S53 as opposed to 553? According to DailyMed, a white oval pill with S53 on one side that's reportedly identified as an Extra Strength Headache Relief tablet, containing a combination of acetaminophen (250 mg) + aspirin (250 mg) + caffeine (65 mg). For verification, the manufacturer/distributor is listed as Spirit Pharmaceuticals and the pill itself carries a National Drug Code of 68210-0017. I hope this helps! ## The white oblong caplet 553 (...

Use Of Spasmo Proxyvon Tablet

Can spasmo proxyvon is helpful to make me energiest to my morning hard race ## Spasmo-Proxyvon contains the active ingredients Acetaminophen, Dicyclomine and Propoxyphene, it is used to treat pain, fever and muscle spasms. As to helping with energy, that is not very likely for most people, because the Propoxyphene is a mild narcotic and usually causes the opposite effect, such as dizziness and drowsiness. In addition, you should also be informed that, in most countries, Propoxyphene was removed from the market, due to the fact that it cause cardiac toxicity, which put some people in severe danger and caused some deaths. Are there any other questions or comments? ## aceproxivon babnned? ## I used to take the sparsmo proxygon tablet daily 18 or 20 piece hardly it become one year. Now I wa...

is there a difference in watson 853 pain pills and 176

I recently was thrown from my horse and have pretty bad pain. My tailbone was broken in three places. I no longer have a script for pain but a friend of mine gave me a couple of pain pills that are different. One says Watson 853 on it and the other looks the same (oblong white) but it has #176 on it. What is the difference? ## Hi Priscilla, I would just like to inform you that not only do you take on a huge risk by taking medication that may not work for you there are federal and state laws that make sharing prescribed medication illegal. I would strongly advise not taking any more medication given to you by anyone. Here is some information on the pills you mentioned. The pills labeled Watson 853 and 176 both contain the active ingredients Acetaminophen and Hydrocodone (325 mg/ 10mg) bu...

Is White Ip204 The Same As Yellow 10 325 E712

i would like to know what is the diff. between ip204 white and yellow 10/325 e712 ## Hello, Based on my research, these two pills are the same in terms of their formulation. "Ip204" and "10 325 E712" both contain Acetaminophen and Oxycodone in the strength: 325 mg/10mg. Learn More: Acetaminophen + Oxycodone Details Please post back if you have any more questions about this medication, I hope the info helps! ## harleyman55 to Jenna Yes it says that but right off the ritger scale Oxycodone HCL contains 8.9637 mg of oxycodone never the full 10 mg. [1] Then after experiencing both generic companies (and sadly many more), IP 204 are complete junk! The Endocet Pharmaceutical is the same underlying company that makes the name brand Percocet which I've heard actually has the...

white oblong tablet 4847

I have this pill. I'm not reading it upside down. It has no manufacturer marks. It just has the letters or numbers 4847 and that's all. ## What pill shape oval size and the inprint of 4847 what are they and what are they called ## Hello Doug, Unfortunately after extensive research nothing comes up for a pill with the imprint 4847. I know that you said you weren't reading it upside down but just in case I found a white oblong pill imprinted with L484 that is reportedly identified as Acetaminophen (500mgs) which is a store brand or generic Extra Strength Tylenol. This would be an exact match to your description but only if read upside down. If you are absolutely sure that you are reading it right side up it may even be a good idea to take it into a local pharmacy and see if th...

white oblong pill no markings scored

white oblong no markings score on one side ## does anyone know what a white oblong shaped pill scored with no other marking is? it says Stellas International, UK ## I placed an order over the Internet for 10G generic Amben. Well guess what, they are fake. Each pill should have some type of identifying letters or numbers. BEWARE!!! ## The law regarding them having to have identifying numbers is only relevant to the U.S. and Canada. Other countries do not have the same regulations in place, so you could very well receive medications from another country that does not have any markings on it, but may still be exactly what you ordered. The problem, of course, is that without any markings, there is no way to be certain that they are what you received. In the U.S. if a tablet doesn't have...
