Clinical Trials Related to Acetaminophen, Caffeine and Dihydrocodeine (Acetaminophen / Caffeine / Dihydrocodeine)

Prochlorperazine Versus Acetaminophen, Aspirin, and Caffeine for the Treatment of Acute Migraine [Terminated]
The objective of this randomized, double blind study is to demonstrate that one dose oral "excedrin migraine" (acetaminophen, aspirin and caffeine) is not inferior when compared to one dose of intravenous prochlorperazine for the treatment of acute migraine headaches in the emergency department.

Study To Determine The Effects Of Doses Of Relacatib On The Metabolism Of Acetaminophen, Ibuprofen And Atorvastatin [Completed]
Relacatib is being developed for the treatment of osteoporosis, osteoarthritis and possibly other bone disorders. Recent results suggest that relacatib interacts with the way our bodies metabolise drugs and so some drugs which are commonly prescribed to the intended target patient population could be affected by giving relacatib at the same time. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect of repeat dose administration of relacatib on the way subjects bodies metabolise three commonly prescribed medications in the osteoarthritis population: ibuprofen, acetaminophen, and atorvastatin.

Efficacy and Safety of Acetaminophen, Aspirin and Caffeine With Sumatriptan in the Acute Treatment of Migraine [Completed]
The main purpose of this study is to compare the efficacy and safety of aspirin, acetaminophen and caffeine (AAC) with sumatriptan and placebo in the acute treatment of migraine.
