Is Nucynta (tapentadol) safe to take with Harvoni. I have an F 2, A1/2 fibrosis liver score? I have 2 herniated discs and can't take ASA, Tylenol, or NSAID.

Is Nucynta (tapentadol) safe to take with Harvoni. I have an F 2, A1/2 fibrosis liver score? I have 2 herniated discs and can't take ASA, Tylenol, or NSAID.

Yes and no: On one hand, nucynta is a narcotic that does not have Tylenol (acetaminophen) or NSAID in it, so that is good in your case. On the other hand, it is metabolized by the liver. And so if you do have issues with your liver it would be best to discuss with your doctor about whether it would be sdvisable in your specific case. ...Read more

Can I take Tylenol extra strength with fioricet if I don't exceed 3000/24 hours?

Can I take Tylenol extra strength with fioricet if I don't exceed 3000/24 hours?

Be cautious: I would try and avoid taking up to 3000mg of tylenol on a regular basis regardless of what source. While 3000mg/24 is an accepted dosing amount. The potential for cumulative toxicity is still significant especially if you take it regularly. Also, be very cautious if you have liver problems, consume alcohol or take other medications metabolized in the liver.
Hope that helps. ...Read more

I think I took 4 Tylenol pm pills instead of 2 when I was getting ready for bed. Is this ok?

Tylenol overdose: It depends on when you had your last dosage, the current state of your liver, and the number of milligrams you took. 4 Grams within 24 hours is concerning. If you feel weak, nauseous, and have abdominal pain you should definitely get yourself
evaluated as soon as possible. You should follow up with your physician regardless. Following directions as prescribed is crucial to preventing an overdose. ...Read more

I have a cold and yesterday accidentally took 4000mg of APAP. I roughly took 2000mg twice 12hrs apart from each other. I took 2 500mg Tylenol and also?

See below: The max daily you should take is 4000mg. Sounds like you got 5000mg. I doubt that is going to cause a problem, but I certainly wouldn't take any more tylenol for a few days, if not a week. It is very hard on your liver. To be certain, you would need to have a tylenol level drawn. You could call poison control and ask their opinion as well. ...Read more
