OBJECTIVES: The analgesic efficacy of two fixed combinations of tramadol/paracetamol (TP 37.5/325 mg) and codeine/paracetamol (CP 30/500 mg) was compared in 122 patients undergoing one-day surgical procedures (hallux valgus, haemorrhoidectomy, varicectomy and inguinal hernia repair), randomly treated with TP 37.5/325 mg or CP 30/500 mg one tablet after surgery ended, followed by one tablet four times daily for 48 hours... CONCLUSIONS: We conclude that a fixed association of tramadol/paracetamol is a valuable and safe tool for pain management in day hospital surgery, especially whenever any effort is done to reduce the time for hospitalization.

Clinical Trials Related to Acetaminophen with Codeine (Codeine / Acetaminophen)

Acetaminophen Adduct Formation in Non-Drinkers Taking Therapeutic Doses of Acetaminophen for Ten Consecutive Days [Completed]
Acetaminophen is commonly used to treat fever or pain. Your body clears acetaminophen by processing it in the liver. During the processing, some of the acetaminophen may bind to proteins in the liver. The protein-acetaminophen product is called an "adduct". After a large acetaminophen overdose, the liver has to process a lot of acetaminophen, so large amounts of adducts are formed. However, we have found that lower levels may be formed even when people take recommended doses. The purpose of this study is to measure the amount of adducts formed when healthy people who do not drink alcohol take normal doses of acetaminophen for 10 days.

A Study of the Efficacy and Safety of Tramadol HCl/Acetaminophen, Hydrocodone Bitartrate/Acetaminophen and Placebo in Patients With Pain From an Ankle Sprain With a Partial Torn Ligament [Completed]
The purpose of this study is to explore the pain-relieving effects and safety of two analgesic treatment regimens as compared to placebo in patients experiencing acute musculoskeletal pain. Patients who are experiencing at least moderate acute musculoskeletal pain from an ankle sprain severe enough to require prescription pain relief medication will be randomized to receive either tramadol HCl/acetaminophen, hydrocodone bitartrate/acetaminophen or placebo.

Acetaminophen or Fluvastatin Compared to Placebo on the Transient Post-Dose Symptoms (PDS) Following an Intravenous (i.v.) Infusion of a Single Dose of Zoledronic Acid 5mg, in Post-Menopausal Women With Low Bone Mass [Completed]
This study will evaluate the efficacy of acetaminophen or fluvastatin in reducing the rate of occurrence and the severity of post dose symptoms that may occur during the 3 day period following a zoledronic acid infusion in post menopausal women with low bone mass.

The Effects of Aspirin and Acetaminophen on the Stomach in Healthy Volunteers [Completed]
Aspirin is a medication commonly used to relieve minor pains. Aspirin has also been used to prevent heart attacks and strokes. Aspirin, however, can also cause damage to the stomach and/or intestinal lining leading to the development of erosions ("small sores") and/or ulcers ("large sores"). Erosions may cause bleeding ("bleeding ulcers") and/or perforations ("holes in the stomach"). Acetaminophen, often referred by the brand name, Tylenol, is also used to treat minor pains but is not commonly recognized to cause damage to the stomach lining.

Many patients often take both of these medications together. While the effects on the stomach lining of each medication, when used alone, are known, the effects of both medications, when used together, are not.

The purpose of this study is to show whether or not the collective effects of both aspirin and acetaminophen, when used together, increase the damage on the stomach lining when compared to either medication alone.

Acetaminophen-Protein Adduct Resolution [Recruiting]
The purpose of this study is to better understand the pharmacokinetics of acetaminophen and further clinical interpretations of laboratory results that confirm the presence of acetaminophen-cys adducts. This study will determine how long adducts persist in serum after a therapeutic course of acetaminophen as taken in a previous study (COMIRB 06-1265). Subjects will be asked to complete three study visits, each three days apart, following termination of COMIRB 06-1265. Each study visit will include collection of blood samples for batch testing of aminotransferase, serum acetaminophen and protein adducts. No interventions are planned.
