With half of all acetaminophen overdoses being unintentional, the Acetaminophen Awareness Coalition reminds pharmacists and other health care providers to encourage patients to properly read medicine labels. The coalition’s Know Your Dose campaign reminds patients to:
- Read and follow the label
- Check whether a medicine contains acetaminophen
- Take only one medicine at a time that contains acetaminophen
- Talk to their health care providers for questions about dosing
The coalition provides information cards, flyers, and other educational materials to assist health care providers in educating their patients about using medicine labels to find vital acetaminophen safety information.
