Legally Pink Law, PLLC stands ready to represent clients in medical negligence and product liability cases. Oftentimes, personal injury results when corporations and manufacturers shirk their responsibility in properly warning consumers about product dangers.
The US Food & Drug Administration has issued a statement recommending that doctors and pharmacists discontinue prescribing and dispensing prescription combination drug products that contain more than 325 milligrams (mg) of acetaminophen per tablet, capsule or other dosage unit. This commonly prescribed drug has been overused and can severely damage the liver.
The FDA fears that the risks of going above 325mg of the drug outweigh potential benefits when smaller doses may be just as effective. Overdose can lead to liver failure, liver transplant, and death. Damage can occur when a patient takes more than one drug that includes acetaminophen, when they exceed the drug use limits, or when they combine the drug with alcohol intake.
