By January 1, 2014, FDA is limiting the amount of acetaminophen to 325mg per pill or 15ml dose. Any products with more than 325mg acetaminophen will no longer be available on the market after this date.
Abbott Laboratories recently announced the launch of a reformulated Vicodin. This reformulation brings down the acetaminophen content to 300mg per tablet. Abbott Laboratories is marketing their brand product as generic.
