Fiorcet Cautions: DO NOT EXCEED THE RECOMMENDED DOSE or take this medicine

recommended dose or taking this medicine for longer than prescribed may be
habit-forming. AVOID ALCOHOL while you are using this medicine. This

ACETAMINOPHEN. Do not take additional acetaminophen for pain or fever
without checking with your doctor or pharmacist. Ask your pharmacist if you
have questions about which medicines contain acetaminophen. Acetaminophen
may cause liver damage. If you drink alcohol on a daily basis, do not take
this medicine without first discussing it with your doctor. Alcohol use
combined with acetaminophen may increase your risk for liver damage. Pain
medications work best if they are used as the first signs of pain (or first
signs of migraine) occur. If you wait until the pain has significantly
worsened, the pain medicine may not work as well. BEFORE YOU BEGIN TAKING
