    acetaminophen with codeine

    Modular program-based one-time assessment of the use of acetaminophen with codeine, acyclovir, albuterol, nizatidine, and sucralfate among children 0 to 2 years, in the Mini-Sentinel Distributed Database. Two categories of counts were generated: (1) incident counts with respect to each of the medications, and (2) prevalent counts (i.e., counts of users with at least one dispensing during the period of interest [January 2000- December 2011]). Modular programs are adaptable standardized programs. Results were generated using Modular Program 1; click here for more information. Programs were executed in October 2012.
