This medicine is a combination of a narcotic and acetaminophen used to relieve mild to moderate pain. Narcotic pain-relievers work by binding to opioid receptors in the brain and spinal cord, and acetaminophen decreases the formation of prostaglandins, therefore reducing pain. This medicine may also be used to treat other conditions (e.g., cough) as determined by your doctor.
