What does the TCL370 pill contain?
The white capsule-shaped pill with the imprint TCL 370 has been identified as Extra Pain Relief containing acetaminophen, aspirin, and caffeine as active ingredients. It is supplied by Time-Cap Labs, Inc.
Each capsule-shaped pill of Extra Pain Relief contains:
- acetaminophen 250 mg
- aspirin 250 mg
- caffeine 65 mg
TCL370 pill is used for the temporary relief of pain from conditions such as muscle aches, toothaches, menstrual cramps, or headaches (including migraine). Aspirin and acetaminophen relieve pain by keeping your body from making certain natural substances. Caffeine helps increase the effects of aspirin and acetaminophen.
TCL370 pill is safe and effective in treating acute headaches, especially migraine, and was considered effective also by the American Headache Society (Level A). This combination is well-tolerated in episodic tension-type headache, and considered superior to acetaminophen, and all components of this combination are considered safe during breastfeeding and can be taken orally for acute migraine attacks.

TCL370 pill has side effects, the most concerning side effect, though, is severe liver damage due to the acetaminophen content. It usually only happens when you overuse the TCL370 pill.
Some people have had allergic reactions to acetaminophen, aspirin, and caffeine. Call your doctor immediately if you develop the following reactions after taking acetaminophen:
• difficulty breathing or swallowing
• swelling of your face, lips, throat, or tongue
• severe itching
• peeling or blistering skin
Severe liver damage
Acetaminophen poisoning can happen from taking too much TCL370 pill. Your liver processes acetaminophen and converts it into a different substance. If you take large amounts of TCL370 pill, your liver produces more of that substance. And when there is too much of it, that substance can damage your liver. However, if you take the TCL370 pill at the recommended dosage, liver damage from the drug is not likely.
Symptoms of liver damage include:
• yellowing of your skin or the whites of your eyes (jaundice)
• pain in the upper right area of your abdomen
• nausea or vomiting
• loss of appetite
• sweating more than usual
• pale skin
• unusual bruising or bleeding
• dark or tea-colored urine
• dark, tarry stools
If you suspect you’ve taken too much TCL370 pill or notice any of these symptoms, contact your poison control center or get medical help right away. If you know you’ve taken more than the recommended dosage of acetaminophen, go to the nearest emergency room, even if you don’t have any symptoms of liver damage. If someone you know who has taken acetaminophen becomes unresponsive or stops breathing, call 9-1-1 or the number for your local emergency services.
