Uses for Acetaminophen

Use this product as indicated and ingest it. Observe every instruction on the product package. If you have any questions, speak with your doctor or pharmacist.

Acetaminophen comes in a wide variety of brands and dosage forms. Read the dosing instructions for that product carefully because the amount of acetaminophen in each medication may differ. Never consume more acetaminophen than is advised. (See also Section on Caution.)

If you want to administer acetaminophen to a child, make sure you use a product made for kids. Use your child’s weight to find the correct dose on the product package. If you don’t know your child’s weight, you can use their age instead.

If the medication is a suspension, fully shake it before taking each dose. Some liquids don’t need to be mixed before use. Observe every instruction on the product package. To precisely measure the liquid medication, use the supplied dose-measuring spoon, dropper, or syringe. Never use a regular spoon.

Chew or allow pills to dissolve on the tongue before swallowing them, with or without water, if the tablet dissolves fast. If the tablets are chewable, chew them completely before swallowing.

Extended-release pills shouldn’t be chewed or crushed. This could result in a sudden, total leak of the medication, increasing the likelihood of adverse effects. Completely swallow the tablets.

For effervescent pills, combine the recommended amount of water with the dose before taking them.

As soon as the first signs of discomfort arise, it is advised to take medications. If you wait until the symptoms are severe before taking the medication, it might not work as well.

Do not take this fever-relieving medication for longer than three days if your doctor has not prescribed it. Use this medication only as directed by your doctor, and never for more than 10 days at a time to treat adult pain (5 days in children). If the child has a sore throat, get medical attention as soon as possible, especially if they are also feeling feverish, headachey, queasy, or vomiting.

If your disease persists, gets worse, or if you start experiencing any new symptoms, let your doctor know.

If you suspect you might have a major medical issue, get immediate medical attention.
