Hi there,

I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

up to 6 tablets in a day can be taken safely.

Dr. D.J. :

What type of pain your sister is having/

Customer:

She has diabetes and RA. She has joint and leg pain. She has not seen a rhumatologist yet however we are planning to see one within the next few week. I was mainly concerned about the acetimenifen dosage of 500 mg per pill.

Dr. D.J. :

ok

Dr. D.J. :

RA related pain will improve with other medications like methotrexate without affecting diabetes.

Dr. D.J. :

tylenol up to 3000 mg daily is safe.

Dr. D.J. :

That translates to 6 tablets.

Dr. D.J. :

you can also combine with ibuprofen to reduce the tylenol dosage.

Customer:

Thanks for your help. She has tramadol for pain also but seems to make her more groggy and she prefers the hydrocodone.

Dr. D.J. :

tramadol should not be taken with hydrocodone.

Dr. D.J. :

but ibuprofen will be fine.

Thanks.
