Acetaminophen Codeine Syrup
I was prescribed Zpak, Prednisone, and Acetaminophen/Codeine syrup for Bronchitis. Should this be helpful?
Medications: The ZPak is a good broad spectrum antibiotic and Prednisone will treat inflammation, particularly if you had wheezing on exam. The cough syrup combined with Tylenol (acetaminophen) can help with fever and cough. I usually advise using Tylenol (acetaminophen) only for fever and a cough preparation only if you need it to sleep. Most bronchial infections though are viral and not treated with antibiotics.
Tylenol: Toxic?: Unfortunately there is no way to remove the tylenol (acetaminophen) or acetominophen from such a product. One has to get another product. Your pharmacist can assist you with this and making sure your physician understands why a new product is being requested. Good for you for learning that tylenol (acetaminophen) can be dangerous.
I have had a URI for about 7 days my doctor gave me a steroid shot and cough syrup with codeine but I that Tylenol (acetaminophen) about ever 4-6 hours still fever???
Tylenol (acetaminophen): Only if prescribed & for short time.
Not recommended: Any time you take expired medication, you run the risk of taking a medication that may have a different chemical makeup then was originally intended. I would recommend you dont use any medication beyond its expiration, especially not two years past.

Tough question: You could.Especially for very short term of pain control and they are from the lower dosage. On the other hand the side effects (constipation, ....)is dose related and if you take it for longer time you will develop tolerance to it where higher and higher doses will be needed.You need to let your doctor know. He may give you s.Th. Else or add acupuncture, self hypnoses or other meds that are safer.
Pain Relief: When pain is moderate to severe, providers may turn to narcotic pain relievers. Codeine is the key ingredient in tylenol (acetaminophen) #3. It has can make you sleepy/affect judgement/nausea/vomiting/dizziness etc...The list goes on. Effects are varied by person, age, tolerance etc. Be aware, tylenol (acetaminophen) also has side effects and should be avoided in large doses or in persons with liver disease.

Amount of Codeine: Both t#3 & t#4 contain 300mg Acetaminophen (tylenol). But while t#3 also contains 30mg of codeine, t#4 contains 60mg or twice as much. Fyi maximum daily dose of Codeine for pain purposes is 360mg; for Acetaminophen the maximum dose has been lowered from 4, 000mg daily down to 3, 000mg daily assuming you have no liver issues and don't drink alcohol to excess.
Varies: For some, it can begin to relieve pain in 20-30 minutes. For others, it may not do anything and never be effective.
Depends on amount at: Taking 7gm of Acetaminophen in one dose will cause liver failure. The current fda max allowed is 4gm per day. This is lowered by the american pain society to 2-2.5 gm per day. So add up the amount in every tab and multiply by the number of pills used per day to get the daily amount.See 1 more doctor answer
How long does it take for 500 mg tylenol (acetaminophen) with codeine to wear off so I can take another?
See below: 4-6hours what is cause of the pain.
Can I take 1 Tylenol (acetaminophen) extra streng 500 mg together with 1 Tylenol (acetaminophen) codeine 3?
Yes: Although I would not recommend doing that, especially regularly, The max dose of Tylenol (acetaminophen) in 24 hours is 3000 mg in adults. Be sure to add the Tylenol (acetaminophen) and Tylenol (acetaminophen) with codeine you're taking to be sure not to exceed this amount. Otherwise you could cause injury to your liver. You may want to consider ibuprofen or other pain reliever not containing Tylenol (acetaminophen).See 3 more doctor answers
