They only reduced the amount of Tylenol (acetaminophen/paracetamol) in the medications, NOT the narcotic component.

Really?

From what I just read, the paracetamol or ibuprofen was to lower the risks and increase the pain reduction per pill, so lower amounts of narcotic could be used. It's banned in many European countries.

It is not the dependence but the possibility of my selling them, as so many elderly do, that they keep a tight rein on them. I think I have proven over the past seven years that I can handle them very well and there is no concern that I will be selling them. Even though my supply was for 10 days at a time if taken as prescribed, then I would have been calling in for a refill on day nine. A lot of times I would call in for a refill on day 15 or even later. So they know I am not selling them. Becoming addicted to them is not one of their concerns. Not at my age. Controlling pain is.

They have known for years that the acetaminophen when combined with alcohol was damaging the liver. Now they know that too high a dose without alcohol is doing the same thing. I have always preferred the aspirin over the Tylenol.

I see. They are lowering the Acetaminophen in Rx drugs because people get it in non-Rx drugs and they could easily get too much.

I refuse to take any drugs with acetaminophen, Rx or not. It doesn't work on me, so I don't want the adverse affects on my liver for no benefit.

I wish they were more cautious with the acetaminophen here. Every time I go to a clinic for something they try to give me stuff with it and I have to argue with them.

Tylenol and Ibuprofen work just fine for me, I don't want the narcotics.

I called the locksmith.
