found bottle empirin compound

found a empty old bottle worth any thing ## @westly, An empty bottle is an empty bottle... I'd probably throw it away if I were you. Besides, if there's nothing in it I just don't see why anyone would feel it's worth holding onto, do you? Empirin is another brand of Aspirin, which you can pick up over the counter at any pharmacy, most convenience stores, gas stations and even supermarkets. It's literally everywhere. Do you usually recycle your medicine bottles? If so, I think that's a good thing. They might only give you 5 cents for it though? I wish you the best of luck! ## I have a full unopened bottle stamped professional sample. Picked it up at an auction in a small lot box for 2.00 for everything in the box ## contrary to what you posted, the bottle the gent...

Empirin #3

Is this still available? It works! ## Empirin compound was the only pain reliever in my home when I was young (60+ years ago). From what I've read, it looks like it was simply aspirin, with no added ingredients, although it worked extremely well on a tooth ache. Was Empirin the forefather of aspirin? ## The compound, such as Empirin 3 contained Aspirin and Codeine, it was a mild opiate pain reliever. 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. This medication combination is still available as a generic, and among other name brands. However, in the U.S. you do need a prescription from your doctor. Is there anything else I can help with?

Empirin Compound

Empirin was a product of Burroughs Wellcome & Co. An effective over-the-counter pain reliever. It was a mixture (compound) of equal amounts of phenacetin and aspirin plus some caffeine. The inclusion of caffeine acts as an anti-depression agent. In the 1960s, this protected formula was sold to Bristol Meyers who marketed it (famously) as Excedrin. In 1983, the FDA banned phenacetin after studies revealed that was harmful to the kidneys and linked to cancer. Following the FDA's ruling, the 'Excedrin' formula was modified by replacing phenacetin with acetaminophen. In 2005, Bristol Meyers sold the formula and name to Novartis who continues to produce and market it as Excedrin. The same "Excedrin" formula is also available from equivalent labels - usually at lower c...

Empirin 4 W Codeine

Where can I get empirin 4 w codeine these days? Do they still make these pills, which i find better than the tylenol #4. ## I can't find any information on its being discontinued, but I don't believe it is commonly used anymore, so it may be difficult to find. It combines Aspirin with the Codeine and, since the Asprin can be problematic due to side effects such as increased bleeding and stomach problems, many doctors shy away from using it on a regular basis. You can try asking your doctor, or pharmacist if there is one available. Are there any other questions or comments?
