    Default what happens if you're 'allergic' to tylenol?

    if i were to go to the doctor/dentist for pain or whatever and tell them that i am allergic to tylenol when they ask, even tho i am not. what will happen? some friends are telling me then they will give you the 'good shit,' and this is how you do it. tho i find this hard to believe, since vicodin and percs both have apap in them and that is typically what one would get for minor or pain in my experience.

    i imagine the alternative would be codeine as far as narcotics go, or they'd probably just give you ibuprofin, or some crap. does anyone have any insight into this theory of working a doctor for stronger medication, or any at all?

    also, what are symptoms of tylenol 'allergies?' that sound plausable with a person that has tylenol based meds prescribed in the past, and do doctors lookup/see this information?

    A good possibility, docs and dentist know junkies hate APAP in their dope. It's not like saying that is going to get you OCs or Morphine or something, your going to the dentist man; be happy with your vics. Maybe he would write a schedual III narcotic script w/o APAP, most likely he'd give you Ibuprofin or something.

    Not to meantion the fact that something as common as APAP would most likely already be marked as an allergy in his medical records, right?

    Dentists can't prescribe more than the SIII pain meds IIRC, or if they have to, they'll refer you to an oral surgeon. Only crooked docs will prescribe you SII's just because you ask about not having APAP.

    As mentioned above, you'll get hydrocodone without APAP but with Aspirin (which is probably even more dangerous at similar doses), or Tramadol, or maybe Darvon if you don't also convince him that you're just a junkie.

    Anyway, just cold-wash the goddam APAP and enjoy.

    You don't have to give your dentist or doctor your medical records unless they request it before writing a prescription to establish prior diagnosed conditions (e.g. online docs) or if they work in the same place as a previous doc's visit (like a college student health clinic).

    Seriously though, you had better have real documentation (like if an incident) in your medical file if you claim to be allergic to apap, especially if you say this to a regular doctor. They here stuff like that all the time from amateur pill-scammers who think that they are the first ones to think of that. Plus, at the dentist, you will just end up getting yourself some 800mg ibuprofen or at best some Darvon or Tramadol like everyone said.
    However, I imagine the symptoms from an allergy to tylenol would be the same as any other allergy- anything from hives to trouble breathing, etc, etc. . .

    don't say tylenol, say asprin. (i think a tylenol allergy is quite rare...where as asprin, especially if you've asthma and allergies is heard of)

    the first experience i had with this allergy being a problem was at the dentist. he told me to go home and take asprin or advil every 4 hours for the pain - i told him i couldn't, was allergic. this was a big problem. (according to him) dentists use/recommend asprin type drugs because of the way they work. they take care of the pain by calming and soothing the nerve(s) being affected...where as tylenol works more in the way of opies by blocking the pain signal in the brain. because of this i got a script for 50 perks...and 50 perks, before becoming addicted, makes for one good time

    I am usual honest. I say "can i have percocet please" or "10 / 325". I know what im talking about and they know i know what im talking about. Now i have kind of run out of times i can say that..... i think 20 is the limit.

    they'd probably give you vicoprofen or percodan instead.

    Why are all u saying he might get Darvos or Percs if hes allergic to tylenol(acetaminophen)? Those both contain tylenol!!! Lol

    Who knows what you'll get dude, there is simply NO WAY to tell! Cause I've seen ppl get Demerol tablets and some get Ibuprofen at most! See how much it varies? Oh, I'm talking about oral surgeons btw. I got like 37 Percocet 7.5/325s when I had all 4 of my wisdom teeth pulled about 3yrs ago like soon as I graduated HS. I met one dude who get freaking demerol!! Lucky POS, was like 50mg tabs or something?
    and this one dude got Fentanyl patches CAUSE when getting the script the dudes dad said "I've got some left over Fentnayl patches, could he use those for pain?" and the doc said 'sure' lol

    I know an intermediate EMT who truly is allergic to: apap, aspirin and ibuprofen...her doc gives her darvon to take for everyday probs like headaches, stuff we all take those other OTC meds for....
    don't know what she gets for surgery or something that goes beyond the darvon pain coverage....
    many people who are allergic to aspirin will also be warned about apap...and may also have a pseudo or true allergy to it as well...

    Percs definitely have tylenol, but darvon, as opposed to darvacet, is just propoxyphene and some fillers. Kind of like Tramadol as opposed to Unltracet.

    Don't get me wrong though, Darvons and tramadol is garbage. There is only one place those two medicines belong :uhhohh:.


    Percs are ok though. Still, if you are "allergic to tylenol" you will probably wind up with some ibuprofin or toradol tablets at best.

    If you're young they'll probably find it suspicious.

    I would imagine they wouldn't give you anything radically different. Instead of vics you'd get vicuprofen, instead of percocet you'd get percodan.

    If you told them the large amounts of APAP were giving you a bad reaction (far more common than being allergic to it) and you were worried about your health, you could ask them to give you something with less tylenol and it wouldn't look as suspicious. I (legitimately) had this problem last year and got 10/325's in place of 5/500's. The APAP was getting me so sick, but I needed the hydro for pain relief.

    ditto here on the doc agreeing to less apap relief....instead of two tabs I took one and got less apap at the same time I was getting my two doses of the prior narcotic mg. med formation

    darvon doesn't have tylenol in it darvocet does, that's another thing they might give.

    That's interesting...that's the same thing I did and they did the same thing...gave me less tylenol which is better than more tylenol...that probably is your best bet. The same thing cov799ss said (btw, what the hell does cov799ss mean?)

    I have a lot of problems with ibuprofen. Last summer I had some major oral pain from root canal infection. I told them I was on methadone but still I was given vicoprofen. Next time I went in I asked for something without Ibuprofen, as the shit really messes with my stomach. Told them I'd prefer tylenol in my meds.

    I dunno why, but I can't tolerate hardly any Ibuprofen or Aspirin anymore. I never used to hav problems, but one time I took Ibuprofen and two hours later I vomited and there was a little blood in it. It must not have bled much 'cuz I've never had it happen again. I assume I don't have much stomach lining anymore.

    I have poor liver function, but small amounts of acetaminophen are said to be generally "okay" for me.

    I would be pretty hesitant to say "i'm allergic"- it''s far more likely for someone to have liver problems or I dunno. If you do, it's probably a good idea to write those sorts of things on your intake information
    your mileage may vary.
