A Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled, Multicenter, Repeat-Dose Study of Two Intravenous Acetaminophen Dosing Regimens for the Treatment of Pain After Abdominal Laparoscopic Surgery


Intravenous acetaminophen has been approved in Europe and elsewhere for the treatment of acute pain and fever, and was recently approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the management of mild to moderate pain, the management of moderate to severe pain with adjunctive opioid analgesics, and the reduction of fever.
