Ten HOPE (ARK.) STAR Dr. Lamb Doctor's warning on Tylenol By Lawrence E. Lamb, M.D. DEAR DR. LAMB - You had a column stating that patients taking an anti-clotting medicine should not take Tylenol because it would intensify the medication. I am taking Coumad in as prescribed by my doctor and, not having read your column, took Tylenol. It seems that you are right, because I did have blood in my urine. My doctor said Tylenol was okay to take but to slay away from aspirin. I told him about your article that Tylenol should not be used during anti-clotting medication. He suggested that there had been a misprint in the paper and why didn't I write to the paper for a correction. I checked with another doctor and he too said Tylenol was okay — perhaps my kidneys had a problem, so I ended up having an X ray of my kidneys. The X ray proved my kidneys were okay. So, how can one explain the Tylenol problem? I found that bleeding occurred on three different occasions after using Tylenol and am convinced you are right. Any additional information would be appreciated. DEAR READER - My column stirred up a hornet's nest, and that is good. NO ONE should take acetaminophen (known as Tylenol, Apamid, Conacetol, Tempra and other trade names) if they are taking anti-clotting medicines, (sometimes called blood thinners) without having the doctor take a blood clotting test. There are so many people taking anti-clotting medicines after a heart attack, or because of clotting problems, or even a stroke, that this point deserves the widest possible public dissemination. The fact that people like yourself can buy acetaminophen medicines without any prescription makes it dangerous for you, in my professional opinion. You can use these medicines without any danger of hemorrhage if you are not taking an anti-clotting medicine. Tylenol has no effect on normal clotting, but it increases the activity of anti-clotting medicine. This does not mean that people taking anti-clotting medicines can not take byBerrtcefedeOol For Saturday, Nov. 9,1974 ARIES (March 21-April 19) You're capable of getting quite a bit accomplished today if you set your mind to it. Do things that are worthwhile and productive. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Plan something social but don't involve yourself with too large a group. Just have a few older friends you're comfortable with. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You should be pretty good at getting a real run for every dol- ' lar you spend, especially if shopping for household needs. CANCER (June 21-July 22) Handle quickly any serious correspondence that needs attending to. You'll feel better once it's out of the way and in the mail. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) If the week's budget has left you with a little surplus cash, tuck it safely away. You'll be wanting it later for something useful. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You're setting a schedule for yourself of things you want to do. It's not likely you'll let anyone or anything interfere with it. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Something that will help further a personal ambition will be told to you in confidence. Don't tell others about it yet. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Something you're hoping for may sound like a pipe dream to someone else, but if you stay on your course it's likely to become a reality. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23- Dec. 21) You'll do very well today if you deal with persons who are older or those who share something of a serious nature you're interested in. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Stand firm on a decision you've recently made. Your position is the right one. Time will later attest to the fact. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) You're entitled to compensation for something you've done for another. The bill is overdue. It should be brought to her attention. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) This is a good day to iron out the rough spots in order to solidify a relationship that's important to you. Don't put it off^ lyour _'Birthday Nov. 9, 1974 Much of your time will be spent this year in pursuit of new knowledge to further your es and ambitions. It will re to be a good base on ' to build a healthier bank Tylenol or other brands. It means the doctor may need to decrease the dose of anti- clolting medicine if the patient takes Tylenol. You could even take it "occasionally," meaning one or two tablets in a week or two. Beyond that, see your doctor. One manufacturer acknowledges these facts. The AMA Drug Evaluation 1971 states acetaminophen "potentiates action of oral anticoagulants" (page 181). Drs. Albert Anllitz and Lawrence Await of the University of Maryland reported a study of an anti-clotting medicine, Coumadin and acetaminophen (Tylenol) and found it necessary to decrease the dose of Coumadin from 5.8 to 4.4 mg (over 20 per cent) to prevent the clotting test from becoming prolonged while taking Tylenol. (NOTE TO DOCTORS: reference, Current Therapeutic Research, Vol. 10, October, 1968, page 501). Some patients respond differently than others, but the studies showed conclusively that acetaminophen under any trade name will increase the action of anti-clotting medicines if acetaminophen is used a week or more. Small doses for two days were not shown to have this effect. So, my advice is for anyone taking anti-clotting medicines and Tylenol for several days or more should have his blood tested. Also, I think a warning should be on the label of acetaminophen medicines. Send your questions to Dr. Lamb, in care of this newspaper, P.O. Box 1551, Radio City Station, New York, N.Y. 10019.

South wasn't happy with the opening lead or with the dummy but happy or unhappy he had to play the hand. He started with a successful heart finesse. It was apparent that he would need a lot of luck in the minor suits so he started by carefully leading his eight of clubs not the deuce. Up with dummy's ace and back for a successful finesse of the jack. Now he cashed the king and led that carefully preserved deuce to dummy's six spot. Now he was ready to attack diamonds. He did so by leading a low diamond from dummy. East played low and South's eight lost to West's queen. West knocked out dummy's ace of hearts, whereupon South led the jack of diamonds; finessed ;igainst East's king; led dummy's last diamond and wound up with two hearts, four clubs, three diamonds and all the marbles. Note that South had to remember to lead the eight not the deuce of clubs and a small diamond, not the jack when he started that suit.
