Accu-tap is an analgesic/antipyretic and is FDA approved. Once it reaches a particular level, its fever reducing properties commands the center of the brain to lower the body’s temperature. It is also able to relieve the pain which comes from its capability to elevate the threshold of pain. It commands the brain to bear a greater amount of pain before it reaches the body.

Effectiveness Of Accu-Tap

Accu-tap is a medication used for the relief of fever and aches and pains. Its properties are similar to aspirin for the treatment of joint pains. It is as effective as NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications) such as ibuprofen - in the treatment of osteoarthritis. It is safe for pregnant and breastfeeding mothers, too.

Accu-Tap is normally the preferred medication of pregnant women from the first trimester to the last trimester of their pregnancy as it causes no harmful effects to the baby. In nursing mothers, a small amount is excreted in their breast milk but research shows no harmful effects that should cause any worry from breastfeeding their newborns.

When used properly, Accu-Tap rarely causes any discomfort. However, misuse and overdose can create damage to the liver. Alcohol when taken with Accu-Tap is also dangerous as alcohol may cause bleeding in the stomach due to its capacity to increase the potential toxicity of the drug.

A patient’s medical history should also be a point to consider. In cases where you are not sure, it is best to consult your doctor and know if there are any possible allergic reactions that you might develop with Accu-Tap. If you have undergone a serious medical condition before, it would be wise to consult with doctor before taking Accu-Tap or any medication for that matter.

Please read the label of the bottle carefully if you are using Accu-Tap as a non-prescription medicine. Never take any two medication which contain Accu-Tap at the same time - and when increasing your dosage, always consult your doctor. It would be wise to follow the advised dosage and take extra care when using it on children especially those under two years old. Make a record as the treatment progresses so that you will know at once when something goes wrong.
