Acetaminophen Tablets Mislabeled, Voluntarily Recalled
A leading medication supplier has recently issued a voluntary recall of Acetaminophen tablets in conjunction with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). This nationwide recall of lot #45810 was recalled due to the mislabeling of 500mg tablets as 325mg tablets. Medication users could be consuming more medication than they are aware of.
Signs and Symptoms of Acetaminophen Overdose
Within the first 24 hours you may experience flu-like symptoms: sweating, fatigue, pale skin, nausea, vomiting, and loss of appetite.
In the 24 to 72 hours following you may experience all of the above in addition to dark urine, upper right abdominal pain, yellow skin/eyes, less urination frequency.
Seventy-two to 96 hours later you may experience blood in the urine, extreme weakness, confusion, or coma.
Acetaminophen overdose is extremely serious since it can cause liver damage, or even death.
