I've never taken tylenol. Is it pretty safe. What is the likely good of me being allergic? Ty

It's probably rare: Doctors don't have a crystal ball to look into the future, which means a doctor cannot predict whether or not a person will have some rare reaction. That's the way life is. However, in 25 years of practice, I have yet to meet a patient who is allergic to plain Tylenol containing only acetaminophen.

Is it okay to take vimovo and tylenol #1?

Is it okay to take vimovo and tylenol #1?

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.

Can I take extra strength Tylenol rapid release with melatonin?

Can I take extra strength Tylenol rapid release with melatonin?

Read label...: If the formulation you are referring to has diphenhydramine in it, be careful about excess sedation when taking it with melatonin. If it only has acetaminophen in it, then do not exceed 3 grams in a 24 hour interval. Read the instructions to determine how much to take in a single dose. Good luck!

Codeine: Codeine is the component of Tylenol 3 that would be tested. It would 3-5 days to be not detectable in urine. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats.

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.

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

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.

I had 2 Tylenol extra strength @ 6:30 pm yesterday 7/28 I took 2 more @ 1:10 a.m 7:29 Is it safe to take 2 Tylenol Extra Strength Rapid release now?

Likely ok: If this is for a day or two, the dose is probably ok. Do note that any dose higher than that may cause liver problem for some people. Long-term intake of tylenol is not a good idea however due to the liver issue.

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.

Would you die from 10 tylenol (acetaminophen)?

Would you die from 10 tylenol (acetaminophen)?

Tylenol (acetaminophen): This really depends on the dose of acetaminophen. A dose of 7gm at one time will put you into severe liver compromise. Current recommendation of the the aps is not to exceed 2-2.5gm/day, fda guide still states 4gm/day. An overdose will compromise the liver and if it does not recover then you could die.

Are there any limitations on acetaminophen (tylenol)?

Not>4000mg in 24 hrs: Total Acetaminophen use should not exceed 4000 mg in 24 hours. Consider that other medicines, including prescription pain medications can have Acetaminophen in them. Taking high doses can damage the liver. If you have liver problems, do not take medications with Acetaminophen without talking to your primary doctor, your liver doctor or to us.
