Tylenol 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 p...

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...

Aurobindo Pharma U37 Tylenol 4

I have had to take generic tylenol 4 for a while since drs cant prescribe anything else. DEA fears I suppose... Surprise, yet a new generic brand aurobindo pharma...Not good!!! First time I've ever felt more pain after taking a medication and also feel very agitated and flush... I know how my medication works and this is just horrible horrible horrible... I called the pharmacy and they said there should be no difference... Really? This is very scary. Such a drastic change... ## This tablet is manufactured by Aurolife Pharma and they list it as containing 60mgs of Codeine with 300mgs of Acetaminophen. The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and constipation. It isn't tha...

Doctors willing to prescribe heavy pain meds for my back and arthritis

Naturally I have a high tolerance for pain meds and a low tolerance for alcohol. Going on 9 months no alcohol as a health choice. I went and had a MRI done a week ago and still waiting for the results. Ibuprofen 800 mg - no way am I taking that much crap every day. My doc said she doesn't prescribe pain meds. Funny... So I'm here, I'll have the updated scan on my back and hope to know a good doctor that can help me with a better value of life. I would just rather take a little bit of something that works than hundreds of milligrams Tylenol. Isn't Ibuprofen 800mg a pain killer? ## Pain meds addictive as we know. Lots of people that live with pain. From experience don't get regular refills of opiate, you'll pay the piper eventually...that day will come. That's ...

White pill imprinted with 0055

Hi. My friend gave me a pain pill for pain with only a four digit code on the pill (0055). Please help me identify this pill. Was it a tylenol or something else? Please respond asap. Thanks. ## Hello Lee Lee, I found an Alaven pill that matches your description. This pill is described as being a pill used to treat anemia and has no pain relief properties. Below I have supplied you with some additional information that I sourced from the NIH. Imprint: 0055;ALAVEN Name: Anadrol-50 Ingredients: Oxymetholone 50 mg Label Author: Alaven Pharmaceutical Color: White Size: 7mm Shape: Round Product Code: 68220-055 I hope this information helps. Have a wonderful day and let me know if there is anything else I can do for you.

Purple And White Capsule With No Markings

Found a Dark purple (half) and white (half) capsule no imprint. Anyone have a clue what this is? ## If there are no markings, it will most likely be difficult to narrow down what it contains. We can rule it out as being a U.S. approved and manufactured prescription product, since they are all required to have imprints to enable their identification. The greatest likelihood is that it's something available over the counter. However, there is also a chance that it could be something specially done by a compounding pharmacy, since they also use blank capsules, or it could be a foreign medication. Does anyone else recognize this capsule? ## Thank you for the info. ## This is Tylenol/codeine from Mexico most probably. ## Women's Thrive level capsule. Purple and white no markings. ## ...

white oblong pill with L583 on one side

Was looking through my meds for Tylenol for arthritis & back pain (deteriorating spinal column) and found a vial of white oblong pills with L583 on one side. Are these Tylenol? ## I found pills meeting that description in my container of Kirkland Acetaminophen 650 mg. (Arthritis Pain relief) pills. ## From what I understand all of the imprints with "L" followed by three digits (e.g. L484, L583, etc) are indicative of various over-the-counter products; often manufactured by LNK International Inc. As far as the pill identity is concerned, it could be Acetaminophen as post #1 suggested, but I just came across a Kirkland Acetaminophen 650mg pill with a National Drug Code of 63981-544 that bears an imprint: L544 as opposed to L583. The NDC code points to a brand called "Kirkl...

Clear orange capsule with orange powder

Please tell me what this is? Someone told me it was a pain pill. I broke my leg and someone give theses to me but I'm not taking something if I don't know what it is. ## Hello Lesa, I may be able to help you but I might need a bit more information regarding the pill. Does the pill have any markings on it? I won't be able to give you an accurate answer without that information. Just in case I will provide you with some useful information to make a more informed decision on what it might be and how you may want to deal with it. In the U.S. the FDA requires that all controlled medication be identifiable through it's marking/imprint. If this medication does not have an imprint we know that it isn't a legally controlled substance. Over the counter medication, vitamins, su...
