Acetaminophen Caffeine Codeine Answered by Earlene Pauling 3 months ago.
acetaminophen is for pain, as is codeine (but codeine can constipate you), and caffeine for energy. I've taken these pills before and they didn't effect me too badly. If they're a year old they probably shouldn't be taken unless you see an expiration date on them and they're still good. Don't take too many and you won't overdose, simple as that.

Can I take 2 Fioricets if I had one beer earlier?
Im prescribed Fioricet (325mg acetaminophen, 50mg butalbital, 40mg caffeine and 30mg codeine). I drank one beer about 4 hours ago, can I take my meds in another couple hours?

Asked by Dean Ebbesen 3 months ago.
Butalbital-CAFF-APAP-COD stands for Butalbital (a barbiturate sedative) containing caffeine, acetaminophen (Tylenol), and codeine. Butalbital has been linked to birth defects if taken during the first trimester, Codeine is speculated to cause respiratory and cardiac defects and low birth weight, Butalbital and Codeine both can create withdraw symptoms in the baby if taken during the last two months of pregnancy (including seizures). Not much research has been conducted on the drug, and therefore the full effects during pregnancy are unknown...I personally wouldn't risk it unless the headache was unbearable. Maybe you should ask your ob/gyn for a safer alternative? Answered by Elicia Bartash 3 months ago.
I wouldn't take anything a ER doc prescribes, not that they aren't smart, just sometimes they don't think about what they are giving a pregnant woman. They gave me CODEINE(not sure how to spell it) even though I was allergic, then put me and my baby into seziers. They have messed up with me too many times to trust them with my baby, so I would call your OB/GYN. Good Luck, and God Bless Answered by Nu Galinis 3 months ago.
That sounds like Tylenol with codeine. I would not think the codeine would be appropriate while pregnant. Can you call or go back to that ER and confirm with the doctor on shift if that is something you should be doing, or call your regular doctor at home. Answered by Hobert Allmond 3 months ago.
My friend got prescribed that when she was pregnant 2, but by her ob-gyn for migraine headaches. I have the same dr and trust her with my life. But if you're feeling uncertain check with your own dr before taking it, they'll be able to tell you more about it and it always helps to be able to ask all the questions you want.

For whoever is familiar with the drug Fioricet?
Does anyone know if there are any long term effect from a Fioricet overdose. If you do, what are they?
Asked by Yajaira Kelch 3 months ago.
Fioricet (acetaminophen/ butalbital/ caffeine) contains the barbiturate butalbital, a powerful sedative/hypnotic. There is also Fioricet with codeine. If a person lives through the acute stage after an over dose they could have continuous anterograde amnesia meaning that for a few days at most that you could be completely uninhibited and forget everything they do. It could be dangerous because in that scenario a person could harm themselves or others either intentionally or by accident because they have no inhibitions and are in a state of not caring about anything. But this will resolve its self over a few hours or days like I said. If the Fioricet has codeine this can be significantly exacerbated. The other risk is hepatic (liver) damage due to the acetaminophen. The maximum dose of acetaminophen is 1,000 mg at any one time and 4,000 mg/day. Exceeding this dose can be dangerous. A toxic dose of acetaminophen is 10,000 mg. If there is liver damage obviously there will be long term complications or acute liver failure can occur. Hundreds of people die every year in North America due to acetaminophen and thousands more are hospitalized. I don't know why you are asking this but if you have any desire to harm yourself please get medical attention. Or if you are wanting to abuse the Fioricet I would advise against it and you might consider getting medical help for substance abuse. Answered by Sydney Widrick 3 months ago.

Is ibuprofen+codeine dangerous?
I have been taking it everyday lately something is wrong I have bad bad back pain, and epic migraines almost every single day. Today I TOOK 4 on an empty stomach though and it made me feel queezy as
Asked by Adrienne Hughs 3 months ago.
I am assuming you are taking something like Tylenol #3 or #4 (codeine mixed with acetaminophen), and not just pure codeine. Mixing ibuprofen and acetaminophen and codeine is pretty hard on your liver. It just seems like over-kill to me, mixing all those pain killers. Taking ibuprofen on an empty stomach will of course make you sick, as will taking tylenol and codeine with no food either. Also, I have read that regular ibuprofen use can lead to allergies in some people. As for acetaminophen, you are not supposed to take more than 4 grams per day, it causes gastrointestinal bleeding, and is toxic at hight doses, as is ibuprofen, i believe. Talk to your doctor about one pain med-for headaches, I have the really bad, I take Fiorcet with Codeine (Butalbital/caffeine/acetaminophen/codei... It is often prescribed for tension headaches. Tryptans like Imitrex, Maxalt and Zomig are prescribed for migraine headaches, because they are related to serotonin action in your brain-tension headaches are not. So I don't think opiates or ibuprofen are going to help you! Answered by Zetta Randahl 3 months ago.
I take ibuprofen and codiene for migrains too, but if you have back pain it could be your kidneys, ibuprofen is hard on you kidneys, make sure you drink plenty of water. Also you might add some pseudophed to your regimine, the kind you get behind the counter that ONLY has pseudophed in it. I think it helps because it is a vasoconstrictor. A dr told me to take it with the other stuff and it helps, just don't take more than the reccomended dose. Additionally, if you are having back and neck pain with the headaches you might should consider a chiropractor. 4 will make you queezy on an empty stomach, that is normal by the way, just eat before you take it or with it. Good luck, Also if you have prolonged problems go to a dr, or if you run fever with your migranes, menengitis is a rare problem, also the flu presents with headache and body ache often. Answered by Cordie Keyon 3 months ago.
tylenol with codeine is for pain. ibuprofen when taken in doses of 1600mg to 3200mg per day has an anti-inflammatory effect. as long as you don't exceed the recommended daily dosage of either drug, you should be okay but the ibuprofen and codeine should be taken with food. long term use of ibuprofen can lead to stomach ulcers and decreased kidney function while long term use of tylenol can lead to liver problems. i would try to correct the reason for the back pain to reduce the need for pain medication and see a migraine specialist.

please help out on those questions!!!! what is the structural formula for it. is it a acid, base?? what's the structure? preparation? which classes of chemical compounds does it belong? the size of molecule? polar or nonpolar bonds? Molecular dipole?
Asked by Mary Furtaw 3 months ago.
Structure and reactivity Paracetamol consists of a benzene ring core, substituted by one hydroxyl group and the nitrogen atom of an amide group in the para (1,4) pattern. The amide group is in fact acetamide (ethanamide). It is an extensively conjugated system, as the lone pair on the hydroxyl oxygen, the benzene pi cloud, the nitrogen lone pair, the p orbital on the carbonyl carbon and the lone pair on the carbonyl oxygen are all conjugated. The presence of two activating groups also make the benzene ring highly reactive towards electrophilic aromatic substitution. As the substituents are ortho,para directing and para with respect to each other, all positions on the ring are more or less equally activated. The conjugation also greatly reduces the basicity of the oxygens and the nitrogen, while making the hydroxyl acidic through delocalisation of charge developed on the phenoxide anion. Available forms Panadol, which is marketed in Europe, Africa, Asia, Central America, and Australasia, is the most widely available brand, sold in over 80 countries. In North America, paracetamol is sold in generic form (usually labelled as acetaminophen) or under a number of trade names: for instance Tylenol (McNeil-PPC, Inc), Anacin-3, Tempra, and Datril. In some formulations paracetamol is combined with the opioid codeine, sometimes referred to as co-codamol (BAN). In the United States and Canada, this is marketed under the name of Tylenol #1/2/3/4 and in the U.S. is only available by prescription, while the lowest strength is over-the-counter in Canada. In the UK and in many other countries, this combination is marketed under the names of Tylex CD and Panadeine. Other names include Captin, Disprol, Dymadon, Fensum, Hedex, Mexalen, Nofedol, Paralen, Pediapirin, Perfalgan, and Solpadeine. Paracetamol is also combined with other opioids such as dihydrocodeine, referred to as co-dydramol (BAN), oxycodone or hydrocodone, marketed in the U.S. as Percocet and Vicodin, respectively. Another very commonly used analgesic combination includes paracetamol in combination with propoxyphene napsylate, sold under the brand name Darvocet. A combination of paracetamol, codeine, and the calmative doxylamine succinate is marketed as Syndol or Mersyndol. Paracetamol is commonly used in multi-ingredient preparations for migraine headache, typically including butalbital and paracetamol with or without caffeine, and sometimes containing codeine. 500 mg Panadol suppositories 500 mg Panadol suppositories It is commonly administered in tablet, liquid suspension, suppository, intravenous or intramuscular form. The common adult dose is 500 mg to 1000 mg. The recommended maximum daily dose, for adults, is 4 grams. In recommended doses paracetamol is safe for children and infants as well as for adults.

NO! 3250 mg of acetaminophen IS NOT at all lethal. Considered as lethal or toxic dose is when 12 gms (12000 mg) or more is taken at once. That would be 24 tablets of acetaminophen (500 mg each) or more. With 3250 mg of acetaminophen from 10 pills or capsules, nothing serious will happen. Possibly it can result to some degree of liver impairment and nothing much. However, as acetaminophen that comes as 325 mg is usually in combination of other active ingredients such as CODEINE, that combined active ingredients when taken in 10 pills or capsule could be lethal. For example a medicine called "FIORICET with CODEINE" has combination of acetaminophen 325 mg, caffeine 40 mg., butalbital 50 mg, and codeine 30 mg. Lethal dose from codeine needs 8 capsules of such medicines, while lethal dose from other ingredients require about 20-30 capsules. So the toxicity of the 10 pills taken depends on other combined ingredients. If indeed there is codeine 30 mg in each, toxic dose can result with 240 mg. Central nervous depression is the worst effect and can possibly lead to death (within few hours if it gets to be worse effects) if not treated promptly. Others may be a bit resistant and will have terrible side effects but won't end up dying. Combined effects of the rest of the ingredients can also make the situation worse, so much more if there is any amount of alcohol intake involved. Back to your question anyway, toxic dose of acetaminophen requires 12 gm or more, lethal effects may result from a dose of 15 gm or more. Death however will not result in an instant. Stages of liver damages and consequent events take some time before ending up with death. If your friend indeed had taken such overdose, call any poison center or take your friend to the hospital at once, there is no time to waste. The time needed to get the lethal effects is not a matter of experiment. Answered by Tasha Harkrader 3 months ago.

That,s an odd #. But if your talking just plain acetaminophen without the codien, then at the 325 mg, thats 10 pills, so not to lethal, & at 500 mgs thats 6.5 pills, still not to lethal. But now if your taking the ones with codiene than both, can either make you very sick, or a little bit high& keep you awake, as the also have caffine in them. Answered by Lindsy Sarnoff 3 months ago.
