Ofirmev Medication Information

OfirmevTM (intravenous acetaminophen) is a medication used to treat pain and reduce fever. It is the first and only intravenous (IV) form of acetaminophen approved for use in the United States. It is administered by an IV drip every four to six hours, and it may be given along with narcotic pain relievers.
 
This medication is not appropriate for everyone; your healthcare provider needs complete information on your medical history and what medicines you are taking before prescribing Ofirmev. Although many people do not have any problems while receiving Ofirmev, this drug can cause side effects, such as headaches, nausea, and vomiting. If negative reactions do occur, they tend to be minor and easily treated.
