Posted On August 4, 2021
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has said that Tylentol and Acetaminophen, the two most popular long-acting acetaminophen drugs in the United States, are safe for the long term.
The CDC said in a statement that Tampax is safe for up to five years.
“These medications are effective in treating pain and inflammation of the joint and the muscles, including the hip, knee, and elbow,” the statement said.
The drug is not intended to treat conditions that cause chronic pain.
The statement said the FDA has issued new guidelines for people taking Tylenes to keep it out of the hands of children, seniors, and people with weakened immune systems.
