Nucynta And Tylenol
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

Sounds ok: If a person had no prior problem with taking Vimovo (esomeprazole and naproxen) by itself, or either of its ingredients by themselves; and had no problem taking Tylenol #1 (acetaminophen and codeine) by itself, or either of its ingredients by themselves; then she should be ok taking Vimovo and Tylenol #1 together. They may cause stomach symptoms. Be sure to follow one's doctor's instructions. ...Read more
Read label...: If the formulation you are referring to has diphenhydramine in it, be careful about excess sedation when taking it with melatonin.

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

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
Tylenol (acetaminophen): This really depends on the dose of acetaminophen. A dose of 7gm at one time will put you into severe liver compromise.
