  •  The advice about combination with caffeine (3+ / 0-)

    is interesting.

    There are "extra strength" variants that have the same amount of acetaminophen as the regular kind, but also have some caffeine in each tablet, right? I avoid all caffeine, as I seem to be particularly sensitive to its effects on heart rate. Instant decaf is fine, but even weak instant non-decaf has me regretting I drank it.

    I remember reading some article about acetaminophen with caffeine once, a while ago ... ah, here, it was possibly this one: Caffeine painkiller risk claimed, BBC News, Sep 2007.

      combination OTC, and prescription, pain relievers, for about a century now.  The reason is, well, it works.  Same advice to caffeine sensitive individuals:  read the label and ask the pharmacist.

      Warmest regards,

      Doc
