Esgic Side Effects
May cause lightheadedness, dizziness, drowsiness, stomach upset, nausea, and sleeping disturbances the first few days as your body adjusts to the medication.

How To Use Esgic
ESGIC: To prevent upset stomach, take this medication with food or milk. Pain medications work best in preventing pain before it occurs. Once the pain becomes intense, the medication is not as effective in relieving it. Long-term use of ESGIC can lead to addiction. Do not take this more often or for longer than prescribed. Follow your doctor''s instructions.

Esgic Uses
ESGIC is a pain reliever and sedative. It is used to relieve mild to moderate pain and tension headaches.

Esgic Precautions
Avoid activities requiring alertness while taking ESGIC, since it can cause dizziness, drowsiness or blurred vision. Tell your doctor your medical history, especially of: liver problems, emotional/mental conditions. Acetaminophen may cause liver damage. Daily use of alcohol, especially when combined with acetaminophen, may increase your risk for liver damage. Check with your doctor or pharmacist for more information. ESGIC should be used during pregnancy only if clearly needed. Small amounts of ESGIC appear in breast milk. Consult your doctor before breast-feeding.

Esgic Drug Interactions
Tell your doctor of all prescription and nonprescription drugs you may use, especially of: "blood thinners" (e.g., warfarin), narcotic pain medications (e.g., codeine). To prevent oversedation, avoid using alcohol and other sedative type medications while taking this. ESGIC contains caffeine. Avoid drinking large amounts of caffeinated beverages while taking ESGIC as excessive nervousness and irritability can occur. Because ESGIC contains acetaminophen, check with your doctor or pharmacist before taking other medications containing acetaminophen which is commonly found in nonprescription pain relievers and cough-and-cold products. Read labels carefully to check ingredients. ESGIC may interfere with the effectiveness of birth control pills. Discuss using other methods of birth control with your doctor. Do not start or stop any medicine without doctor or pharmacist approval.
