Tylenol Overview

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

Tylenol and Ibuprofen

I was told today, taking 2 Tylenol and 2 ibuprofen is equivelant to taking morphine for pain! Is there any truth to that? ## Hello, Keith! How are you? No, that is not accurate. Alternating the two, say by taking Tylenol in the morning, then Ibuprofen 8 hours later can sometimes result in better pain relief, because it can help reduce swelling more significantly that just taking one or the other, but it will not be anywhere close to Morphine and doubling up on them, at the same time, could be dangerous, due to the toxic effects they may have on the liver. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I need to know for a 15 yr old weighing 126lbs, is it safe for her to take two Tylenol 500mg and two Ibuprofen 200mg, which is a total of 1,400 mg at once? ## Is it safe to take Ibuprofen and ...

Light blue oblong pill no imprint

The pill has absolutely no imprint on it, is about the size of a tylenol Thank you! I have suspicions it is illicit ## Still hoping for any answers. My daughter found this pill in our home after her boyfriends visit. He has a history of drug abuse, but swears he is clean now. Finding a pill that fell out of his pocket makes us suspicious. Any way to have the pill analyzed free? ## I'm sorry, I don't know of any way to have it analyzed for free and without an imprint, it is impossible to positively identify it. With no imprint, I can be sure it is not a legal US prescription medication, but otherwise, it could be anything, even just a multi-vitamin. ## They could be 2mg xanax - Denver brand in argentina. No way to prove it unless you have it lab analyzed. ## I concur ... 2 mg alp...

Gum infection/ pulse

Hi. I have gum infection due to my wisdom teeth. I am pregnant so I can get them extracted now . But my dentist prescribed Tylenol and amoxicillin now the question is my gum turned red like it was bloodshot after my first dosage of the antibiotics then the next day I discovered that it became really soft and had like a pulse... few hours later blood and what not came out of the pulse and it felt numb like I wasn't feeling any pain again but it's still swollen a bit . Is that it healing? Or I should be worried ## It sounds like you had an abscess infection, and it drained. I experienced many of them, myself, before I finally got rid of all my teeth and got dentures. You should definitely finish the antibiotics, and consult your doctor, or dentist, if you experience any other prob...

Butalbital Apap Caffeine with Tylenol

I am pregnant and I'm taking butalbital + apap (325mg) + caffeine. My doctor says it's ok. Can I take tylenol along with it? ## Do NOT take Tylenol or any other brand of acetaminophen with any other drug containing it. You can accidentally overdose. FDA has recently come out with a "black box" warning about this. Please do a search for Butalbital and you should find the same article regarding acetamenophin and the FDA. ## Diane is correct, in this medication, APAP is just medical speak for Acetaminophen. You can read more about the dangers of overdosing on it here NCBI Acetaminophen Hepatoxicity. Why do you feel you also need Tylenol?

Doctors who will prescribe pain medication in rhode island

I am looking for an MD or Pain clinic that will prescribe pain medication in Rhode Island. I have 4 herniated discs, nerve damage in my leg, severe migraines. My former Md said that he could not longer prescribe due to the regulations, I dont want to have to move, that would be crazy to have to go through that, but I also do not want to continue living night and day in Agony, with not one Md that has any compassion, it seems all they care about is to look out for themselves, I only take 2 pain medications that I believe are both in class 1, but when you talk to a doctor about pain, they tell you to take tylenol. I am tired of theses doctors just caring about themselves, if you have a patient like myself, that has the MRI's and Catscans to show what my pain level is, they should be a...

Rumoquin pill information

It's a round lavender pill with no imprint on the pill itself. ## Sorry, I can't find anything under that name in prescription databases or otherwise. If there are no imprints on the pill, then it is not a prescription drug from the US, of any kind. All prescriptions sold legally in the US must have, by law, a unique imprint for ID purposes. And I am afraid that since I can't find that name listed anywhere, I am unable to tell you anything about this, sorry. ## Without Rumoquin NF I literally could not get out of bed and walk in the morning for almost an hour. I lived in Mexico for 8 years and suffer with arthritis in all the joints of both legs and my right hand. This is not a pain killer. It is the best anti-inflamatory I have ever used. When I returned to live in the US I...

i experience pain on right side of head face jaw ear neck feels like toothache everytime i take pain meds hydrocone tylenol and ibuprofen codeine tram

is there a common ingredint. n codeine hydrocone tramadol ER meds something causes tormenting. pain on right side of head face. jaw( feel like toothache ) ear neck I can feel nerve throbbing I was taking pain med for cervical degeneration. which is disabling but they all cause this other suffering. help please ## Have you consulted your doctor to have this checked out? The reason I'm asking is because the erosion from GERD can sometimes cause this, since it exposes nerves that radiate to that area. Whenever mine acts up, I end up with pain that radiates to that same area on my right side, but after taking something to reduce the acid and let it heal for a few days, it usually stops. Do you take the medications with a full, 8 ounce glass of water? Do you ever get heart burn? Frequent...

Narrow white coated tablet that's light brown inside

Hi, I found this white tablet (not a capsule). It’s a bit narrower and longer than most. Broken in half, the inside is a light brown color and has a peculiar smell (inside, once broken). An exhaustive search online yields nothing that tells me what it definitely could be. Anyone know? ## Btw it’s more of an oblong shape than oval, similar to an excedrin or tylenol, just slightly narrower and slightly longer. ## Also, it has no markings. No imprint or numbers or anything like that. It also lacks any kind of scoring. ## Hello Jimbo, In the United States all perscription and over the counter drugs are required by the FDA to have an imprint. If the pill that you found does not have an imprint it is possible that it is some sort of vitamin, energy pill or a foreign drug. If you a...

Sublingual drug usage and inactive ingredients

When you have the option of taking a drug sublingually, does taking it in that fashion in any way dissolve away or lessen the impact of the inactive ingredients, rendering the intended drug effects more equal between brands? ## I'd also like to add whether the bioavailability of the drug between two brands becomes more identical when the drug is administered sublingually as opposed to swallowed. ## Hello Schleprock, All routes of administration of the same dosage of a drug regardless of brand are required by the FDA to meet a standardized number of the active ingredient entering your blood stream. For example all generic versions of 100mg tylenol (acetaminophen), regardless of administration route, are required by the FDA to have +/- 20% of amount of acetaminophen in your blood stre...
