I recently stopped taking acetaminophen on a daily basis about 2 weeks ago. Now I am having blood in my stool (3x now) and back pain, what should I do?

See doctor: Tylenol should not cause blood in the stool. If it was being used for back pain, that may be why you are having back pain now. However, anytime there is blood in the stool, that needs to be evaluated by a doctor to rule out many possibilities with the colon, stomach, or esophagus. ...Read more

How to alleviate the strong pain of spondyloarthrosis in a patient suffering from high blood pressure, when acetaminophen doesn't work?

Other modalities: It is true that one may wish to avoid nsaids for back pain (if that is where it is), because of the side effect of of possible salt retention and increasing the blood pressure. Other approaches not affecting BP would be skeletal muscle relaxants, topical analgesics; acupuncture, physical therapy modalities. Sometimes a short course of steroid or opioid analgesics may be considered. ...Read more

Have the flu. Just noticed blood in my stool. It's red, not black. Been taking lots of acetaminophen and ibuprofen. Also took tamiflu.

Have the flu. Just noticed blood in my stool. It's red, not black. Been taking lots of acetaminophen and ibuprofen. Also took tamiflu.

Red in stool: This is likely a hemorrhoid. Soften the stools with colace 100 mg two times a day and use a teaspoon of mineral oil three to four times a day. This should help. You should have this checked by a gastrointestinal specialist. Good luck. ...Read more

Does panadol affects blood glucose level?

Does panadol affects blood glucose level?

No: Hi. No, paracetamol (aka acetaminophen in the USA) does not affect blood glucose levels. Having said that, the two continuous glucose monitors (CGMs) on the market in the USA (Dexcom & Medtronic) are affected by paracetamol; if you use one of them and take paracetamol, the readings are not accurate until the paracetamol is out of your system. Good luck! ...Read more

Is it possible to combine my blood pressure drug: exforge, with other pain killers such as tylenol, panadol etc..?

Is it possible to combine my blood pressure drug: exforge, with other pain killers such as tylenol, panadol etc..?

Yes : This drug is a combination of amlodipine and valsartan. These are safe drugs with Tylenol. Panadol is also acetaminophen. Please do not take both . I would try to avoid NSAIDs such as advil as this can contribute to hypertension. Follow the label for correct dosing. The amount of Tylenol you can take is reduced with age and liver disease. ...Read more
