Acetaminophen; Eszopiclone

FDA says that clinicians should stop prescribing combination prescription pain relievers that contain more than 325 mg of acetaminophen, citing the risk for liver damage.
The agency also lowered the recommended starting dose of the sleep aid eszopiclone (Lunesta, Sunovion Pharmaceuticals). Data show that eszopiclone levels in some patients may be high enough the morning after use to impair activities that require alertness, including driving, even if they feel fully awake.
