Acetaminophen [Tylenol] Advisory

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued an advisory that the dosage of acetaminophen (pain reliever) in prescription combination drugs should not exceed 325 mg per tablet, capsule, or other dosage unit.

Two years ago the FDA advised drug companies that manufacture combination medicines, which include acetaminophen, to limit acetaminophen to 325 mg per tablet, capsule, or  other dosage unit  by January 2014.

While the FDA has not yet ruled on over the counter medications, it advises the public to read labels to confirm if medications contain acetaminophen. Where this is the case, dosage should be kept within the recommended guidelines of 325 mg per tablet, capsule, or other dosage unit. The maximum dose for adults is 4,000 mg per day.

The Public Health Department confirms that all health care workers are being advised of this.

For more details, refer to the FDA advisory that is published as a separate story in today’s iNews Cayman
