My grandmother was prescribed Dolo 325 (acetaminophen or paracetamol) after she had an episode of a silent heart attack. The dose is to be taken twice daily. Can anyone explain how this treatment might work?

    Are you sure it's acetaminophen, not aspirin? Acetaminophen is generally for pain or fever, and post-MI has a better safety profile than NSAIDs. I googled Dolo 325; it showed a mix of Tramadol/Acetaminophen, which would make it similar to other opioid pain medications like Norco (Hydrocodone/Acetaminophen).

  • I'm certain, it is acetaminophen

  • Could it be a placebo?

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because we have no idea of the medical conditions of your relative. Mar 11 '18 at 5:39
