Accu-Tap review

Accu-Tap is more popularly known by the names Paracetamol and Tylenol. It is composed of the chemical compound para-acetylaminophenol, which is the source of all three names. Accu-Tap is probably the most commonly used medication there is. Being a non-prescription medication, people have become comfortable with using it for numerous symptoms associated with different medical conditions.

Accu-Tap is an FDA-approved analgesic and antipyretic. Accu-Tap’s fever-reducing properties command the center of the brain to lower the body’s temperature once it reaches a particular level. Its ability to relieve pain came from its power to elevate the pain threshold. It orders the brain to require a greater amount of pain to be present before the body actually feels it.

Accu-Tap is available in many forms – liquid solution, coated capsules, chewable tablets, gel capsules and tablets, and suppositories. All forms are taken either by mouth or through the rectum. It is commonly available in 325mg, 500mg, and 650mg dosages. The recommended dosage for children depends on their age and weight, ranging from 40mg to 650mg, taken every four hours. For adults, the oral dose is usually between 325mg and 650mg, taken every four to six hours. If used as a suppository, the dose for children is between 80mg to 325mg; for adults, it is 650mg. Treatment with Accu-Tap should stop after 10 days. If symptoms persist or you develop new symptoms, must consult your doctor immediately.

Accu-Tap is generally safe to use to relieve a number of aches and pains as well as fever. It has similar properties as aspirin in treating joint pains and is as effective as NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications) like ibuprofen in pacifying osteoarthritis. Accu-Tap can be used by pregnant and breastfeeding mothers alike. Typically, it is the medication of choice for pregnant women in all stages of their pregnancy because it causes no harmful effects to the fetus. A small amount of Accu-Tap is excreted in the breast milk but it showed no harmful effects that should disturb nursing mothers from feeding their newborns.

Accu-Tap rarely causes physical discomfort when used properly; however, overdose and misusage can create serious damage to the liver. Using Accu-Tap while consuming alcohol is also highly dangerous. Alcohol increases the potential toxicity of Accu-Tap and may cause bleeding in the stomach.

Your medical history must also be taken into consideration. If you are unsure, consult your doctor regarding possible allergic reactions you may develop against Accu-Tap. Also, if you have had a serious medical condition before, do not take Accu-Tap or any medicine without first talking to your doctor.

If you use Accu-Tap as a non-prescription medication, you must read the label carefully. Never take two medications that contain Accu-Tap at the same time. Do not increase your dosage unless directed by your doctor to do so. Stick to the required dosage. Take extra precautions if you are using it on your children, especially when they are under two years old. Keep track of the patient-under-treatment’s progresses so you know immediately if something is not right.
