Tylenol Overview

Paracetamol, also known as acetaminophen, is a medication used to treat pain and fever.[12][13] It is typically used for mild to moderate pain relief.[12] Evidence is mixed for its use to relieve fever in children.[14][15] It is often sold in combination with other medications, such as in many cold medications.[12] Paracetamol is also used for severe pain, such as cancer pain and pain after surgery...

Tylenol before taking Hydrocodone. Safe?

Just took Tylenol for pain. DR gave me Hydrocodone for pain after surgery. Scared to take it after reading all this ## Is it safe to take Hydrocodone after Tylenol didn't help? My surgeon gave me Hydrocodone after surgery ## No, you should not double up on the Acetaminophen, taking too much of it in a day, or in any 8 hour period, could result in overdose toxicity, which can be fatal. The FDA classifies this medication as 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. However, you could try asking your doctor to prescribe something without the Acetaminophen in it. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Verwon, too much actaminophen is bad for your liver.My wifes live...

Opiates and lack of physicians willing to prescribe

"First do no harm." The starting line in the Hippocratic Oath. I have been a chronic pain patient off and on for 20 years. Should have been ON for the duration, but idiot overdosers and Congress got involved. Drs. are not fulfilling their path. Legitimate pain patients like myself live a miserable existence. We are not seeking drugs to get high or to sell, but to at least dull our pain. I contemplate suicide daily as a way to not feel the constant pain. There is no joy, no happiness and nothing to look forward to when even the smallest task brings tears to your eyes. Physicians are afraid to prescribe meds they know will alleviate pain because a bunch of bureaucrats, far removed from reality, dictate what they can prescribe. How unreasonable is that? Congress doesn't know me...

Need a pain med for Chronic pain from CRPS Type 2 that does not contain TYLENOL

Hello..I have Crps type 2 and take Norco 10/325....Is there any other pain med that DOES NOT CONTAIN TYLENOL that would work for me,, esp since I like my Liver and want to keep it as long as possible without killing it from Tylenol....Thank You ## Hello, Stevarino! How are you? Yes, there are quite a few other options that don't contain Acetaminophen/Tylenol that you can ask your doctor about, including Oxycodone, Morphine, Dilaudid and a new version of time released Hydrocodone without the Acetaminophen called Zohydro. This is 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? ## I also suffer from CRPS both knees. Wanted to let you k...

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...

Round White Pill Fr33

I found this pill and don't know what it is. It's not in any database. ## That is correct, I haven't found it in any of our resources, either. Are you located in the U.S.? I found several posts on here where people had asked about this tablet, but we have never been able to find an identification for it. This leads me to suspect that it is something that is available over the counter, since those imprints are not required to be logged like they are for prescription medications. However, there is also a small chance that it could be a foreign medication. Does anyone else recognize this tablet? ## Yea, its like Tylenol. It's a 711 brand. ## Yes it is acetaminophen. Aka. Tylenol. I got some while on holiday in Alaska. Not sure what strength which is why I found this page se...
