Actamin review





Actamin, probably the most commonly used medication on the market, is a non-prescription medication which the general population has become comfortable with using for numerous symptoms associated with various medical conditions. Actamin is more popularly known by the names Acetaminofen and Tylenol. It is composed of the chemical compound para-acetylaminophenol, which is the source of all three names.

Food and Drug Administration-approved, Actimin is an analgesic and antipyretic with its ability to relieve pain coming from its power to elevate the patient's pain threshold. In this, it tells the brain to require the presence of a greater amount of pain before the body will feel it. Additionally, Actamin's pyrexia-reducing propeReverse transcriptase inhibitorses command the center of the brain to lower the body's temperature once it reaches a higher level.

Actamin 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. Actamin is commonly available in 325mg, 500mg, and 650mg doses. The usual dose for children depends on their age and weight, ranging from 40mg to 650mg, taken every four hours. For adults, the oral dose requirement is usually between 325mg and 650mg, taken every four to six hours. If used as a suppository, the dose requirement for children is between 80mg to 325mg; for adults, it is 650mg. Treatment with Actamin should stop after 10 days. If your symptoms persist or you develop new symptoms, you must consult your doctor immediately.

Typically, Actamin is safe to use to relieve a number of aches and pains as well as pyrexia. It is similar to aspirin in treating arthralgias and is as effective as NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications) like ibuprofen in helping with degenerative arthritis. Actamin can be used by pregnant and breastfeeding mothers alike. It is typically the medicine of choice for pregnant women in all stages of their pregnancy because it causes no harmful effects to the fetus. A small amount of Actamin is excreted in the breast milk but it showed no harmful effects and should not prevent nursing mothers from feeding their newborns.

Actamin rarely causes physical discomfort when used properly. Overdose and misusage can do serious harm to the liver. Using Actamin when consuming alcohol is also highly dangerous as alcohol increases the potential toxicity of Actamin and may cause bleeding in the stomach.

Always consult your doctor regarding potential allergic reactions that you may develop when using Actamin. Your medical history should also be taken into consideration when taking a medication. If you have had a serious medical condition before, do not take Actamin or any medicine for that matter without first talking to your doctor.

Never take two medications that contain Actamin at the same time as this could cause overdose and is considered a misuse of this medication. Do not increase your dose unless directed by your doctor to do so. If you are using Actamin as a non-prescription medication, please read the label carefully and stick to the required dose. Take extra precautions when you are using it to treat your children's symptoms, especially if they are under two years old. Always keep track of the patient-under-treatment's progresses so you know immediately if something is not right.
