Acetaminophen and Pentazocine Information

Acetaminophen and pentazocine (Talacen®) is a pain reliever that combines an opioid narcotic medication (pentazocine) with acetaminophen (Tylenol®), a non-narcotic pain reliever. It can help relieve short-term pain, such as after a surgery, or chronic pain, such as cancer pain. This product works by binding to opioid receptors throughout the body.
 
One acetaminophen and pentazocine tablet can be taken every four hours as needed for the relief of mild-to-moderate pain. However, do not take more than six tablets a day.
 
This drug is not suitable for everyone. Information on acetaminophen and pentazocine should be discussed with your healthcare provider before starting treatment to minimize your risk for certain complications. For instance, people who have problems with their lungs, kidneys, or liver may not be able to safely use this medicine.
