Tylenol® Attorneys Jacksonville
FDA Recall, Warning or Action: FDA announced that it is asking manufacturers of oral prescription acetaminophen (the active ingredient in Tylenol®) “combination products” to limit the maximum amount of acetaminophen in these products to 325 mg per dosage unit.
At times, a non-prescription drug can be combined with prescription drugs for convenience and affect. Harrell & Harrell’s trial lawyers work jointly with medical experts to identify dangerous over-the-counter drugs as well as those combined in prescription medications. Non-prescription products can suffer from the same inadequate warnings as prescription medications. Combination drugs can be particularly problematic since consumers can mistakenly intake too much of the over-the-counter product.
Side Effects of the most common in Combination Medications
Acetaminophen is a pain medication and fever reducer that is widely available and used in both prescription and over-the-counter products. Although acetaminophen is generally considered safe and effective when used as directed, possible negative effects can include:
- Severe Liver Injury
- Liver Failure
- Need for Liver Transplant
- Sudden Death
NOTE: Acetaminophen in prescription drugs is always found in combination with other active ingredients, such as opioid pain relievers. The FDA warns that it continues to receive reports of severe liver injury associated with the use of acetaminophen-containing products.
