The FDA issued new warnings yesterday on the overdose danger of mixing prescription drugs with acetaminophen. Many prescription drugs such as Percocet or Vicodin contain acetaminophen. When combined with over the counter acetaminophen, they can reach dangerous levels.
The FDA is asking doctors to stop prescribing the drugs that contain more than 325 mg. of acetaminophen. Always ask your doctor or pharmacist about your prescription and over the counter drugs to avoid accidental overdose.
