The Food and Drug Administration is asking doctors to stop prescribing combination medications that contain more than 325 milligrams of acetaminophen per pill, because of long-standing concerns about liver damage. The move, announced Tuesday, is one of a series of actions the FDA is taking to limit high-dose use of the popular painkiller. The agency says it soon will withdraw approval for any of those medications containing more than 325 mg of acetaminophen. It also said that it is planning new regulations on over-the-counter acetaminophen, but did not give details.
