Questions and answers on "Tylenol"

My daughter attempted suicide and took a whole bottle of 100 Tylenol 500mg during the course of an afternoon before calling for assistance. Other prescription meds were involved too. (But only a couple of weeks worth). She received an antidote for the Tylenol and is now in a sub acute environment receiving "other treatment". She has told me that she has not eaten in the past four days (very nauseous) and has had mucus and blood discharge from her rectum. Could this be a symptom of something caused by the Tylenol?

hi, my 11 year old boy started out with a white swollen bumpy tongue,we used Tylenol fever reducer for two days and got fever down and he's eating some but seems to have a mild sweat during sleep should we be worried about this or keep treating him like we were.

UR CHILD HAS ALREADY STARTED SHOWING IMPROVEMENT. PROBABLY HE SUFFERED FROM ACUTE ORAL MUCOSITIS. U CAN CONTINUE GIVING TYLENOL ON AS AND WHEN REQUIRED BASIS. ALONG WITH THIS U ADD A MULTIVITAMIN SYP FOR HIM. IT WILL HELP HIM IN GETTING OVER IT SOON.

Hi. I was checking to make sure I did not give my toddler an unsafe dose of tylenol. My husband mistakenly gave our son 5 mL of infant tylenol, thinking it was the type that was 160 mg acetaminophen per 5 mL dosage. Instead, it was the concentrated infant tylenol, which is 80 mg acetaminophen per 1.0 mL dosage. So, basically, he gave our 28 lb toddler 400 mg (5 mL, 80 mg per mL). I called poison control, who told me that because we hadn't given him any other tylenol all day (his last dose was 7 pm last night, and we gave him this dose at 7 pm tonight) we didn't need to worry. Is this correct?

doctor1 MD

Hello,
Welcome to health care magic
Tylenol contains acetaminophen which is given to reduce fever.Dose of tylenol is 10-15mg/kg/dose..So for ur 14 kg child it will work out to 140-210mg.But maximum daily dose is 60mg/kg ..I.e 1440mg for your child. So don't worry.Same time don't repeat for next...

YES I HAVE A PAIN IN MY RT UPPER ANTERIOR SIDE JUST UNDER MY RIB CAGE. I AM SURE IT HAS SOMETHING TO DO WITH PAIN IN MY LIVER AND TAKING TYLENOL WITH CODEINE FOR SEVERAL YEARS. I HAVE COMPLAIN SEVERAL TIMES . HE SENT ME TO A STOMACH DOCTOR TO SEE ABOUT MY ULCER. I KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE TWO PAINS. I HAVE HAD ULCERS BEFORE. THIS IS MORE LIKE A CRAMPING CONGESTION WHICH I FIND MILK THISTLE HELPS. MY COLOR IS NORMAL. I AM NOT YELLOW. I HAVE A UNEXPLAINED RASH ON THE BACK OF MY HAND I DO STAY EXTREAMELY TIRED. COULD THIS BE TYLENOL POSION? WHAT OTHER PAIN MED CAN I USE TO GET PAIN RELEIF FROM ARTHORITIS? WHAT QUESTIONS OR TEST SHOULD I ASK FOR ON MY NEXT OFFICE VISIT TO CHECK MY LIVER?

doctor1 MD

You are allergic to tylenol & hence the rash. Also gastritis due to tylenol. Codeine has aggravated it. Avoid future use of tylenol and LIVER is normal.

I started taking Tylenol with codeine #3 I took two at bed. I slept a lot better. I took one at 10:30 this morning, and felt kind of queezy, and then at 12:00 I took one pill of Apo-Azithromycin 250 mg, and then I got really queezy, and thew up a few times. I have stopped the Tylenol, but still trying to figure out if the antibiotic my have caused it.

doctor1 MD

my 7 year old daughter started her fever of 101.4 last night with cough meds and tylenol I was able to get her to sleep. Now, this morning, when she woke up, we noticed a blotchy red rash on her arms and face. It is not raised. Does not itch or burn. Has not spread or gone away with cough meds and tylenol. I've looked at pictures online and it doesn't seem to be 5th or 6th disease. It doesn't resemble heat rash either. What could this be?

doctor1 MD

Most rashes tend to be viral induced but it can be allergic although less likely since not itchy- but you may want to check the cough medicine and see if you stop that or perhaps there may be something in the Tyelnol ie a dye etc.
The main thing is that she is drinking, active and acting...

Hi Doctor, My 8 months old son has been having loose motion since last Saturday. He had sever diaper rashes which has now reduced to some extent. Last Wednesday he had high temperature in the night (102 degree F) after which we started Tylenol. From Friday, he started developing rashes all over his body including his face. His fever has come down, but all the remaining symptoms are still there. Please advice what could be the cause for this.

I am currently on Tramadol for a pain that I haven t been able to get rid of on my own with relaxation and OTC meds such as Tylenol and Advil. Tonight my heart has been palpitating and I want to know if it could be the pain pill or if not is it safe to take the Tramadol?

If Naproxen has damaged my kidneys and Tylenol is bad for my liver what type of pain meds are available for me? I am said to have several chronic conditions which Docs seem to think or they claim once thought were in people s heads, which I don t understand, but I m only a teacher with a BS and a MS who suffers from spinal degeneration, narrowing of the spine, bulges at L1 and L2 and recently L4 and L5 up until Oct. 2013 when an attempt was made to correct these imaginary disc bulges. I suffer daily sinus headaches docs say they see something in there but there s nothing they can do about it. I have bursitis they tell me, which at times calls for a long needle to be jabbed into my hip and, there s nothing imaginary about that. They tell me I have Gerd so I imagine that s that burning sensation that come up in my chest and throat when I miss taking my omeprazole. I wonder if something like that could have led to my moms and her only sister s esophageal cancer? Or it could be the hiatal hernia or the unspecified intestinal disease they told me I have. You know I thought after that surgery while I was in rehab I was feeling better then I had in years and then I went home. The very next day I was back in the emergency room oh I forgot before I left the rehab a sore started to form at the surgical site and it began to bleed a little but no one was alarmed, especially not me I had had at least 8 abdominal surgeries before, one of them had to ripped back open due to infection (my C-section) the other burst back open when I was made to get up and too soon I thought, after my hysterectomy when I became dizzy and fell while walking down the hospital hallway. This was different this was something I had never heard of and probably would not have if I had died you see doc the people in the emergency room sent me home with a tube of cream, never contacted my surgeon it was her day off never advised a follow-up with her, oh I guess they knew I would not need one. But because I had home health care they took me to their hospital and a week later from the doctor s office I was rushed into surgery stat still didn t know what was wrong and two operations later after efforts to get my blood pressure stabilized I was then told I had contracted something called MRSA. I was on antibiotics for months and sick as hell for months one infection in the body after another in various places I won t name. Finally I was treated for a terrible bronchitis that would only go away with a protocol of prednisone and antibiotics used to treat pneumonia. So back to my original what type of pain meds are safe for me? Thank you in advance if you can answer my question and God bless.

I have been dealing with arthritis since I was 25. I am now 65. I have had one hip replacement. I have it in my hands,feet,hips,lower back and now my shoulders. I am in a great deal of pain. My doctor only prescribes extended relief Tylenol. I keep telling him I need something stronger because Tylenol doesn t even touch the pain I am in. I use to walk a lot now my feet hurt so bad I have given it up. Plus I rode my bike too but now find it hurts my back too. Any suggestions on pain medications?
