Formula Information

A small arrow pointing down

This formulation combines Acetaminophen, Dichloralphenazone, and Isometheptene Mucate in a solid dosage form, specifically an oral capsule. The capsule is composed of two gelatin or vegetarian shells that enclose the medication. This design allows for convenient and easy swallowing, and provides a precise dosage of the active ingredients.

Acetaminophen is a well-known analgesic and antipyretic, commonly used to relieve pain and reduce fever. It works by inhibiting the synthesis of prostaglandins, substances in the body that cause pain and inflammation. Dichloralphenazone is a sedative that helps to reduce anxiety and induce sleepiness. It is often used in combination with other medications to treat headaches and other types of pain. Isometheptene Mucate is a sympathomimetic amine with vasoconstricting activity. It is used to treat migraines and severe headaches by narrowing the widened blood vessels in the head, thereby reducing the pain.

This combination of medications is particularly effective in treating tension headaches, migraines, and other types of pain. The Acetaminophen works to relieve the pain, the Dichloralphenazone helps to relax the patient and reduce any associated anxiety, and the Isometheptene Mucate works to reduce the severity of migraines and severe headaches.

It is important for patients to take this medication exactly as prescribed by their healthcare provider. Overuse or misuse can lead to serious side effects, including liver damage from Acetaminophen, dependence or withdrawal symptoms from Dichloralphenazone, and high blood pressure from Isometheptene Mucate. Patients should also be aware that this medication may cause drowsiness, and they should avoid driving or operating heavy machinery until they know how this medication affects them.

For prescribers, it is important to consider the patient's overall health status, other medications they are taking, and their history of medication use when prescribing this formulation. Regular monitoring may be necessary to ensure the medication is working effectively and to check for side effects.

Acetaminophen is a pain reliever and fever reducer, Dichloralphenazone is a sedative that helps to decrease anxiety and induce sleepiness, and Isometheptene Mucate is a vasoconstrictor that narrows blood vessels in the brain. This combination is typically used to treat tension headaches or migraines.

It's important to be aware of potential drug interactions when taking this medication. Acetaminophen can interact with certain medications such as warfarin, isoniazid, and some antiseizure medications, potentially increasing the risk of liver damage. It's also important to avoid alcohol while taking this medication, as it can increase the risk of liver damage.

How Does it Work

A small arrow pointing down

The Acetaminophen 325 mg/Dichloralphenazone 100 mg/Isometheptene Mucate 65 mg Oral Capsules are a combination medication used primarily for the treatment of tension headaches and migraines. This formulation combines three active ingredients, each with a unique mechanism of action, to provide relief from these conditions.

Acetaminophen, also known as paracetamol, is a common over-the-counter medication used to relieve pain and reduce fever. It works by inhibiting the production of prostaglandins, chemicals in the body that cause pain and inflammation. By reducing the levels of these chemicals, acetaminophen can help to alleviate headache pain.

Dichloralphenazone is a sedative that helps to relax the muscles and reduce anxiety. It works by affecting certain substances in the brain that control the sleep-wake cycle. By promoting relaxation and sleep, dichloralphenazone can help to alleviate the stress and tension that often accompany headaches.

Isometheptene Mucate is a vasoconstrictor, which means it narrows the blood vessels. This action can help to relieve the throbbing pain of a migraine headache by reducing the amount of blood and pressure in the affected vessels. Isometheptene Mucate works by stimulating alpha-adrenergic receptors in the smooth muscle of blood vessels, causing them to constrict.

The medication is enclosed in a solid dosage form composed of two gelatin or vegetarian shells. This design allows for convenient and easy swallowing, and provides a precise dosage of the active ingredients. The capsules are designed to dissolve in the stomach, releasing the medication for absorption into the bloodstream.

It's important to note that while this medication can help to alleviate the symptoms of tension headaches and migraines, it does not prevent these conditions or reduce the frequency of attacks. It should be used as directed by a healthcare provider, and patients should consult their provider if their symptoms do not improve or if they worsen.

If you have any questions about this formulation, or if you would like more information about how it works, please don't hesitate to reach out to us at Bayview Pharmacy. Our team of knowledgeable compounding pharmacists is always here to help.

Other Uses

A small arrow pointing down

This specially combined formulation of Acetaminophen 325 mg/Dichloralphenazone 100 mg/Isometheptene Mucate 65 mg, housed in easy-to-swallow oral capsules, is most commonly used for the treatment of tension headaches, migraines and other types of severe throbbing or pulsatile headaches. Each component works in a unique way - Acetaminophen acts as an analgesic to relieve pain, Dichloralphenazone has sedative properties to help relax any anxiety or restlessness associated with severe pain, and Isometheptene Mucate helps to constrict dilated blood vessels that contribute to headaches.

Beyond its primary use in managing severe headaches, this formulation may also have additional applications. For example, the Acetaminophen component may be effective for other types of pain, such as arthritis, muscle strains, or toothaches. Some doctors may recommend these capsules for relief of postoperative pain or pain resulting from certain medical procedures. However, the drug should be used with caution, as high doses or long-term use can lead to liver damage, particularly in patients with pre-existing liver conditions or those who consume alcohol frequently. Additionally, patient monitoring is recommended due to the sedative properties of Dichloralphenazone, which can lead to drowsiness or impaired judgement.

Despite these potential alternative applications, it is crucial to remember that this medication should not be used to self-treat pain without the consultation of medical professionals, as misuse or overuse can lead to serious side effects.

In summary, although this formulation is primarily used to treat tension and migraine headaches, the individual components may provide relief from other types of pain, postoperative discomfort, and restlessness. Patients and prescribers should remain aware of the potential risks and side effects associated with each ingredient. Always consult with a healthcare provider before using this or any medication in a capacity outside of its intended use.
