Analgesics

Pain control is essential to quality patient care. It ensures patient comfort, promotes pulmonary toilet, and aids physical therapy regimens. Many analgesics have sedating properties that benefit patients who have sustained trauma.

Acetaminophen (Tylenol, FeverAll, Aspirin Free Anacin)

Acetaminophen is the DOC for pain in patients with documented hypersensitivity to aspirin or NSAIDs, who have upper GI disease, or who are taking oral anticoagulants.

This combination is indicated for the treatment of mild to moderate pain. The available dosage strengths are as follows:

•Tylenol #2: 300 mg Tylenol/15 mg codeine

•Tylenol #3: 300 mg Tylenol/30 mg codeine

•Tylenol #4: 300 mg Tylenol/60 mg codeine
