Acetaminophen

Acetaminophen is a medication that is used to reduce fever and relieve pain. Acetaminophen may be used in a wide variety of applications in the treatment of pain within the body from the common headache to backaches, toothaches, muscle soreness, fevers, and more.

How to Use Acetaminophen

Take orally with a glass of water at regular intervals through the day and evening as needed. Do not take more than directed. Do not 'double up' if an interval is missed.

Potential Side Effects

As with all medications, consideration should be given to how your body reacts to acetaminophen. Adverse reactions are not common but may be possible. If you experience any of the following, contact a physician for care or consultation:

  • Breathing Problems
  • Fever
  • Weakness
  • Nausea
  • Skin Rash, Itching or Hives
  • Swelling (in the face or other areas)
  • Difficult Urination
  • Bleeding or Obvious Bruising

Warning: If you experience a rash that spreads and causes blistering or peeling, stop taking acetaminophen immediately and call your doctor or visit an emergency room right away.

Contraindications

Anyone with a history of liver problems or renal impairment/failure should consult with their physician before taking ANY dosage of acetaminophen.

Do not drink alcohol while taking acetaminophen.
