there seems to be a recall on the following pain relievers: Hydrocodone Bitartrate and Acetaminophen Tablets 10 mg/500 mg. I am taking Ibuprofen for back problems ( herniated disks)
Ibuprophen 800 mg. doesn't contain acetaminophen. The brand Qualitest recalled 101 batches of Hydrocodone bitartrate and acetaminophen 10/500 mg. tablets. Feb. 20,2012-Nov. 19,2012 due to possible added acetaminophen in the tablets, which can be dangerous if a person receives more acetaminophen than their daily limit which I believe is 4,200 mg. I am not completely sure on the maximum daily limit. If anyone knows for sure please correct me if I'm wrong!
Also Watson recalled some batches in I believe june2012 due to possible added extra acetaminophen, or Hydrocodone. Several products of Tylenol have been recalled spanning from 2010- 2012 including infants and children's Tylenol oral suspension liquid, infants oral suspension, grape flavor, children's melt aways, children's soft chews, 80 mg, and junior 160 mg. Tylenol 8 hr. Caplets 50 ct. ( musty odor) Tylenol extra strength caplets 225 ct. (unidentified odor). Tylenol Arthritis pain caplets 100 ct. Ex. Strength tylenol rapid release, and tylenol pm. That I'm aware of. Also included was Benadryl, and Motrin, 2010. There may be others. I found the listings for recalls at https://www.drugs.com/search.php?searchterm=tylenol+recall
I hope that helped a little. To your health.
Ibuprofen has nothig to do with the hydrocodone/acetaminophen that is being recalled. They are two completely different medications. The hydrocodone/acetominaphen that is being recalled was maufactered by Qualitest. If you are taking this particular medication then return to the pharmacy with the original bottle and they will replace it, otherwise you have nothing to be concerned about since you are taking ibuprofen, not the hydrocodone.
