Tylenol Overview

Paracetamol, also known as acetaminophen, is a medication used to treat fever and mild to moderate pain.[11][12] At a standard dose, paracetamol only slightly decreases body temperature;[11][13][14] it is inferior to ibuprofen in that respect,[15] and the benefits of its use for fever are unclear.[11][16][17] Paracetamol significantly relieves pain in...

Thick round light blue pill w/ INV 243 on one side blank on the other?

I found this pill, its light blue, thick, and has INV 243 on it, no marks on the other side. I was wondering if anyone had any idea of what it might be? Thank you! ## Can someone please help me? I found this pill, its light blue, very thick, it has INV 243 on one side, and blank on the other. Can someone please help??? I cant find it anywhere... ## I'm sorry, but I can't find this listed in any of our U.S. prescription drug resources, either. I just went through 4 pages of pill images from the company that uses the INV logo and I found nothing blue, or with the 243 marking. Where was it found? Does anyone else recognize this? ## It's almost like a Tylenol 4. Its for pain relief.

Red And Green Capsule White Stripe Numer 8

found a oval capsule on my kid from school it is half red and half green with white stripe down middle and number 8 on it i dont know what it is and the school nurse cant find out either i need help no clue what kind or anything it is ## This has come up o our site, before and I can't find a listing for it, however, from the description, I am assuming it is some type of over the counter product. These caplets that have the stripe in the middle are usually designed to be rapid release and are used for various products, such as Tylenol or its generic and store brand equivalents to allow the medication to work faster. However, there are several on the market and over the counter products are not required to log their imprints with the FDA, so discovering which one it is, is going to be...

Large Oblong White Pill No Imprint But Scored In The Middle

found some large oblong white pills that were cut in half. They were in a pill box with tylenol and advil. These white ones had no marking except for a vertical line down the middle where they were cut in half. Any clues to what they may be? ## I'm sorry, but if there are no markings, it is going to be difficult to narrow down exactly what these tablets may contain. We can rule them out as being a U.S. prescription medication, since they are all required by law to have unique markings to enable their identification. However, it could be any one of a large number of over the counter items, there is even a small chance it could be a foreign medication. Did you find these in the U.S.? Does anyone else have a idea of what these might be? ## the small white oblong tablets are being sold ...

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...
