Acetaminophen 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 relief.[1] Evidence for its use to relieve fever in children is mixed.[11][12] It is often sold in combination with other ingredients such as in many cold medications.[1] In combination with opioid pain medication, paracetamol is also used for more severe pain such as cancer pain and pain after surgery.[13] It is typically used either by mouth or re...

M522 73 325
2 Replies RSS
white oval tablet ## ACETAMINOPHEN-OXYCODONE (Roxicet(R)) is a combination of two different types of pain medicine and is used to treat moderate to severe pain. Federal law prohibits the transfer of acetaminophen-oxycodone to any person other than the patient for whom it was prescribed. Generic acetaminophen-oxycodone oral solution is available. ## Is the marking possibly 7.5/325 M522? Can you please double check and post back? A tablet with that marking contains 7.5mgs of Oxycodone, and 325mgs of Acetaminophen, it is a generic for Percocet. The FDA warns that it carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, dry mouth, constipation and headache. Is there anything else I can help with?

Hydrocodone pill that says u03
94 Replies RSS
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...

6 Replies RSS
Want to make sure pharmacy gave me the correct medication. I had taken some pain medication that has M367 but today the pharmacy gave me a pill with the letter "n" on the left side and "358" on the right side of the score line. On the other side it has number "10". Just want to make sure I got the correct medication for pain. Not more or less of what my Dr has been giving me. I take a 10mg dose. I am supposed to take 10mg of hydrocodone and 325mg of acetaminophen. Want to make sure that is what I got today. ## I had to double check also. They are hydro 10s. No worries. ## RE: n358 hydrocodone Why do people always say "I found this pill"?... B.S. why can't they just say I got this pill, trying to make sure it's what I think it is or bought or whate...

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

Thanks, Gloria {edited for privacy} ## Both pills actually contain the same amount of Oxycodone + Acetaminophen (7.5/325). The only differences that come to mind are the fact that M522 is manufactured by Mallinckrodt while IP 207 is manufactured by Amneal. And as a result, ther...

watson 396 25 650 green ## what is this pill!!! my dog started to eat it he found it in my front yard! ## Watson Pharmaceuticals lists this tablet as containing 650mgs of Acetaminophen, and 25mgs of Pentazocine, it is a narcotic pain reliever. The FDA warns that it carries the risk of being habit forming, and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, constipation, and dry mouth.

Teva Pills acetaminophen with codeine/tylenol 3 or 4
4 Replies RSS
anyone else taking generic tylenol 4 made by teva? my pharmacy just switched brands and taking ONE feels like i'm taking FOUR. but that's only every third pill... they dont feel consistent but regardless they feel WAYYYY over the regular strength of codeine. it feels like i'm taking codiene and vicodin at the same timme and i hate it. ## Is there any chance that the times when it seems to hit stronger are also times where you might have eaten less, or not eaten anything yet? If so, that could explain the inconsistency right there. It could even happen if you took one with a big breakfast, since the food would prevent it from hitting your body as fast and then took the next one with or just after a light lunch, since there isn't as much food and it the medication would re...

what is this p500 pill
10 Replies RSS
It's a white oval pill with P500 on one side and blank on the other. Sites are showing me pink oval pills like that that are acetaminophen/propoxyphene but none white, and other sites are coming up with a white oval pill with P on one side and 500 on the other as an antibiotic. ## Just out of curiosity Tai, whereabouts did you get it from? My research also yields the same two examples you already mentioned. It seems strange that something with what appears to be a common imprint can't be easily identified when others of similar description can. Pliva Inc. is the manufacturer of the Acetaminophen/propoxyphene napsylate (pink version). And part of me wonders if their tablet used to be white at one point or another, as I understand manufacturers may alter shapes and colors without ...
