Those two things (along with physio and chiro) were removed, oh, 10 years ago now Brita? They are still covered for minors, but not for adults.

Yep, about that. What a shame. Chiro maybe not so much, but physio, dental and eye should definitely be covered for everyone.

I agree! What a routine eye exam could find could save us a ton of taxpayer doallars for say, glaucoma surgeries which could lead to say, heart disorders (aren't the two somehow linked?). But we're not syaing the system is perfect, just that it serves the general needs of the many.

Looks like chronic doses greater than 2,000 mg/day raise your risk of GI bleeds.....but the pain relief from ibuprofen is better.....Hmmm, here's a problem: "Like NSAIDs and unlike opioid analgesics, paracetamol has not been found to cause euphoria or alter mood in any way"
Dang!
They mention the increased risk of asthma in children given tylenol, findings which may have been confounded by indication....
Ahhhh, here's a pointer to the paracetamol toxicity article:
Hmmm - "The toxic dose of paracetamol is highly variable. In adults, single doses above 10 grams or 200 mg/kg of bodyweight, whichever is lower, have a reasonable likelihood of causing toxicity." You can apparently get a rise in liver enzymes from doses of 1 gm 4/day over a period of a coupla days, but it is "unlikely" liver failure would result from this dose.

So there you have it, from a pretty damn good source - I have a strong pro-wikipedia bias, especially for things medical. Some other things, like whether Queen Min of Korea was a good ruler or not, often get into bloody debates, depending on whether one is Korean or Japanese. Fortunately, the debates are right there on the discussion page.

/begin rant
Ahem. Anyway, the whole tylenol-aspirin-naproxen-ibuprofen thing irritates me to a large degree. Rather than a handful of those pills to stop some pain, a simple single 10 or 20 mg tablet of morphine sulfate will stop tons more pain, and the side effects are much better understood and frankly less hazardous than our usual collection of "safe" OTC pain killers. See this -

/end rant

edit: got the morphine dose wrong, added a nice reference

Percocet is actually a very good pain management tool but the problem is they mix it with acetaminophen with a 5 mg/325 mg ratio. Thus, you get a ton of acetaminophen for very little reason. There is no real difference in the pain relief from a 5 mg oxycodone and a larger mixed pill...other than less stomach issues from the former one. At least in my experience as that's what I usually end up getting when I aggravate my back every couple months.
