If you are already taking any other medicines, including herbal medicines and those bought without a prescription, you should check with your pharmacist before taking this medicine, to ensure that the combination is safe.

You should not take other medicines that contain paracetamol in combination with this medicine, as this can easily result in exceeding the maximum recommended daily dose of paracetamol. Many cold and flu remedies and over-the-counter painkillers contain paracetamol, so be sure to check the ingredients of any other medicines before taking them with this one.

This medicine should not be used by people who are currently taking a monoamine oxidase inhibitor antidepressant, eg phenelzine, tranylcypromine, isocarboxazid or moclobemide, or who have taken one of these medicines in the last 14 days. This is because the combination of phenylephrine and an MAOI could cause a dangerous increase in blood pressure (hypertensive crisis).

If phenylephrine is taken with any of the following medicines, the combination may cause an increase in blood pressure. If you are already taking any of these medicines you should avoid taking this one as well:

beta-blockers, eg propranolol

other decongestants (often found in other non-prescription cough and cold remedies)

tricyclic antidepressants, eg amitriptyline

appetite suppressants

amphetamine-like stimulants.

Phenylephrine can reduce the effects of medicines to treat high blood pressure (antihypertensives). If you are taking medicines for high blood pressure you should not take this medicine.

Cholestyramine reduces the absorption of paracetamol from the gut. It should not be taken within an hour of taking paracetamol or the effect of the paracetamol will be reduced.

Metoclopramide and domperidone may increase the absorption of paracetamol from the gut.

Long-term or regular use of paracetamol may increase the anti-blood-clotting effect of warfarin and other anticoagulant medicines, leading to an increased risk of bleeding. This effect does not occur with occasional pain-killing doses.

Best bets for back pain

Judicious use of pain relievers can help you keep doing your usual daily activities, which aids recovery from back pain.

Images: Thinkstock

Updated: June 19, 2015Published: June, 2015

When your back is bothering you and you don’t want to take prescription drugs, over-the-counter solutions and physical therapies can help relieve symptoms.

At this moment, about 10% of men have a backache, and up to 90% will have a backache at some point in their lives. Most flare-ups of low back pain get better over time, often within a few weeks. Pain control is important because it allows you to stay active, which assists in your recovery. For over-the-counter pain relievers, you have two options: acetaminophen or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).

But pain relievers are only one tool to help you recover from, and prevent, low back pain, according to Dr. Jeffrey N. Katz, professor of medicine and surgery at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and editor of the Harvard Special Health Report Low Back Pain: Healing Your Aching Back. Dr. Katz suggests you also include these steps in your back-care plan:

Soothe with cold or heat. In the first few days, when pain is most intense and may be accompanied by inflammation, apply cold compresses for 15-minute periods. After a few days, switch to warm compresses to relax the affected muscles and enhance blood flow to the area. This simple approach can reduce reliance on pain relievers.

Stay as active as possible. Limited amounts of rest in a chair or bed can help when the pain is most intense, but you will do better in the long run if you keep doing your daily activities.

Stretch and strengthen your back. Once the pain eases, it’s helpful to exercise regularly to stretch and strengthen the muscles that support your spine. This helps prevent future flare-ups. A physical therapist can offer individual advice.

Develop back-safe techniques. When you lift heavy objects, lift with your leg muscles—not your back. Watch out for behaviors, like slouching when you sit, that may trigger back pain.

Does Tylenol work?

During back-pain flare-ups, you may also need an over-the-counter pain reliever to help you through. Doctors often suggest you first try acetaminophen (Tylenol, others) because it is gentler on the stomach, even though NSAIDs tend to work better for back pain. There’s good evidence that acetaminophen relieves headaches, dental pain, and pain after surgery, but its effectiveness for back pain is less well supported.

A recent research review in BMJ found only three clinical trials that directly compared acetaminophen to a placebo for back pain. The review pooled findings drawn from more than 1,800 participants. It found no evidence that acetaminophen relieved pain, reduced disability, or improved quality of life. An Australian study published in The Lancet—which provided 90% of the data in the BMJ review—found that the time to recover from backache was the same (about 17 days) whether study participants took acetaminophen or a placebo. In short, acetaminophen worked no better than a sugar pill.

It’s important to keep in mind that these clinical trials measured the effect of acetaminophen in a diverse group of back-pain sufferers. All back pain isn’t the same, and acetaminophen could be helpful in certain individuals. But the research suggests that you should not be too surprised if it doesn’t work.

What are your options?

If you try acetaminophen for a backache and it doesn’t work as well as you need it to, then stop taking it, says Dr. Katz. “Three to five days is all you need to find out if it will work.”

Also, you don’t necessarily have to choose between acetaminophen and NSAIDs; you could try both at the same time. “They are often used in combination, because they don’t appear to have additive side effects, while many people find that they have additive benefits,” Dr. Katz says.

Finally, remember that pain relievers are just one tool available to men with back pain, whether occasional or chronic. Make sure to do all the other things mentioned above to recover from or prevent future flare-ups.

Over-the-counter options

For over-the-counter pain relievers for back pain, you have two options: acetaminophen (Tylenol, others) or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).

Acetaminophen

Acetaminophen interferes with the pain process, although exactly how it does so is not fully understood. It also reduces fever, but it does not fight inflammation.

What are the risks? High doses of acetaminophen can damage the liver. The FDA-approved maximum daily dose for acetaminophen is 4,000 milligrams (mg), but many doctors suggest staying closer to 3,000 mg to create an extra margin of safety. “No drug is perfectly safe, but for people who don’t have liver problems, I recommend acetaminophen fairly often,” Dr. Katz says. Men who have liver disease or drink alcohol regularly should not take acetaminophen daily without consulting their doctors first.

NSAIDs

The over-the-counter alternatives to acetaminophen are the NSAIDs ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin), naproxen (Aleve), and common aspirin. These reduce pain and fever as well as inflammation. “Over all, NSAIDs are more potent for pain relief,” Dr. Katz says.

What are the risks? The most common side effects of NSAIDs are stomach pain, nausea, heartburn, and diarrhea. Less common but more dangerous are ulcers and gastrointestinal bleeding. Some research has linked NSAIDs to heart problems, so people with cardiovascular disease are advised to avoid prolonged use. NSAIDs also may cause kidney damage, though this is uncommon.

You should not use aspirin if you are allergic to it, or if you have:

  • a recent history of stomach or intestinal bleeding;

  • a bleeding disorder such as hemophilia; or

  • if you have ever had an asthma attack or severe allergic reaction after taking aspirin or an NSAID (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug) such as Advil, Motrin, Aleve, Orudis, Indocin, Lodine, Voltaren, Toradol, Mobic, Relafen, Feldene, and others.

To make sure this medicine is safe for you, tell your doctor if you have:

  • asthma or seasonal allergies;

  • stomach ulcers;

  • liver disease;

  • kidney disease;

  • a bleeding or blood clotting disorder;

  • gout; or

  • heart disease, high blood pressure, or congestive heart failure.

Aspirin can pass into breast milk and may harm a nursing baby. You should not breast-feed while using this medicine.

How should I take aspirin?

Take aspirin exactly as directed on the label, or as prescribed by your doctor. Do not use in larger or smaller amounts or for longer than recommended.

Take with food if aspirin upsets your stomach.

Do not crush, chew, break, or open an enteric-coated or delayed-release pill. Swallow it whole.

The chewable tablet form must be chewed before swallowing.

If you use the orally disintegrating tablet or the dispersible tablet, follow all dosing instructions provided with your medicine.

If you need surgery, tell the surgeon ahead of time that you are using this medicine. You may need to stop using it for a short time.

Do not take this medicine if you smell a strong vinegar odor in the bottle. The medicine may no longer be effective.

Store at room temperature away from moisture and heat.

Seek emergency medical attention or call the Poison Help line at 1-800-222-1222.

Overdose symptoms may include temporary hearing loss, seizure (convulsions), or coma.

What should I avoid while taking aspirin?

Avoid drinking alcohol while you are taking aspirin. Heavy drinking can increase your risk of stomach bleeding.

If you are taking this medicine to prevent heart attack or stroke, avoid also taking ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin). Ibuprofen may make this medicine less effective. If you must use both medications, take the ibuprofen at least 8 hours before or 30 minutes after you take the aspirin (non-enteric coated form).

Ask a doctor or pharmacist before using any cold, allergy, or pain medication. Many medicines available over the counter contain aspirin or an NSAID. Taking certain products together can cause you to get too much of this type of medication. Check the label to see if a medicine contains aspirin, ibuprofen, ketoprofen, naproxen, or an NSAID.

What other drugs will affect aspirin?

Ask your doctor before using aspirin if you take an antidepressant such as citalopram, escitalopram, fluoxetine (Prozac), fluvoxamine, paroxetine, sertraline (Zoloft), trazodone, or vilazodone. Taking any of these medicines with an NSAID may cause you to bruise or bleed easily.

Ask a doctor or pharmacist if it is safe for you to use aspirin if you are also using any of the following drugs:

  • a blood thinner (warfarin, Coumadin, Jantoven), or other medication used to prevent blood clots; or

  • other salicylates such as Nuprin Backache Caplet, Kaopectate, KneeRelief, Pamprin Cramp Formula, Pepto-Bismol, Tricosal, Trilisate, and others.

This list is not complete. Other drugs may interact with aspirin, including prescription and over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, and herbal products. Not all possible interactions are listed in this medication guide.

Remember, keep this and all other medicines out of the reach of children, never share your medicines with others, and use aspirin only for the indication prescribed.

Always consult your healthcare provider to ensure the information displayed on this page applies to your personal circumstances.
