What is this medicine?

Tylenol (a set a MEE noe fen) is a pain reliever. It is used to treat mild pain and fever.

What should I tell my health care provider before I take this medicine?

They need to know if you have any of these conditions:
  • if you frequently drink alcohol containing drinks
  • liver disease
  • an unusual or allergic reaction to acetaminophen, other medicines, foods, dyes or preservatives
  • pregnant or trying to get pregnant
  • breast-feeding

How should I use this medicine?

This medicine is for rectal use only. Do not take by mouth. Wash your hands before and after use. Take off the foil wrapping. Wet the tip of the suppository with cold tap water to make it easier to use. Lie on your side with your lower leg straightened out and your upper leg bent forward toward your stomach. Lift upper buttock to expose the rectal area. Apply gentle pressure to insert the suppository completely into the rectum, pointed end first. Hold buttocks together for a few seconds. Remain lying down for about 15 minutes to avoid having the suppository come out. Do not use more often than directed.

Talk to your pediatrician regarding the use of this medicine in children. While this drug may be prescribed for children as young as 3 months of age for selected conditions, precautions do apply.

What if I miss a dose?

If you miss a dose, take it as soon as you can. If it is almost time for your next dose, take only that dose. Do not take double or extra doses.

What may interact with this medicine?

  • alcohol
  • imatinib
  • isoniazid
  • other medicines with acetaminophen

What should I watch for while using this medicine?

Tell your doctor or health care professional if the pain lasts more than 10 days (5 days for children), if it gets worse, or if there is a new or different kind of pain. Also, check with your doctor if a fever lasts for more than 3 days.

Do not take acetaminophen (Tylenol) or other medicines that contain acetaminophen with this medicine. Too much acetaminophen can be very dangerous and cause an overdose. Always read labels carefully.

Report any possible overdose to your doctor right away, even if there are no symptoms. The effects of extra doses may not be seen for many days.

What side effects may I notice from receiving this medicine?

Side effects that you should report to your doctor or health care professional as soon as possible:
  • allergic reactions like skin rash, itching or hives, swelling of the face, lips, or tongue
  • breathing problems
  • fever or sore throat
  • redness, blistering, peeling or loosening of the skin, including inside the mouth
  • trouble passing urine or change in the amount of urine
  • unusual bleeding or bruising
  • unusually weak or tired
  • yellowing of the eyes or skin

Side effects that usually do not require medical attention (report to your doctor or health care professional if they continue or are bothersome):

  • headache
  • nausea, stomach upset

Where should I keep my medicine?

Keep out of reach of children.

Store at room temperature below 27 degrees C (80 degrees F). Protect from moisture and heat. Throw away any unused medicine after the expiration date.

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