Answer

Analgesics/Antipyretics

Pain control is essential to quality patient care. Analgesics ensure patient comfort and have sedating properties, which are beneficial for patients who have sustained trauma or who have sustained injuries.

Acetaminophen (Tylenol, Feverall, Tempra)

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

Hydrocodone and acetaminophen (Vicodin, Lorcet, Lortab)

Drug combination for moderate to severe pain.

Codeine/acetaminophen (Tylenol With Codeine #2, #3, #4)

Indicated for mild to moderate pain. Opioid and analgesic.

Acetaminophen and codeine content of Tylenol products is as follows:

Tylenol #2: 300 mg acetaminophen/15 mg codeine

Tylenol #3: 300 mg acetaminophen/30 mg codeine

Tylenol #4: 300 mg acetaminophen/60 mg codeine
