The FDA is making changes to prescription medicine that contains acetaminophen. Manufacturers that produce prescription combination products containing acetaminophen are being asked by the FDA to limit the dosage to 325 mg per capsule or tablet to protect liver toxicity. Also, the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) has informed manufacturers that all their prescription products containing an acetaminophen combination will need updated labels, warning about potential severe liver injury risk. Acetaminophen relives fever and pain and can be found in prescription medications, such as codeine, Percocet (oxycodone), and Vicodin (hydrocodone).
Acetaminophen is also available in over-the-counter medications such has Tylenol. However, the FDA commented that these types of over-the-counter medications are not included in their recent directives.
