All of them will: The fda has just required all companies making combination products to stop putting any more than 325 mg of tylenol (acetaminophen) into these products. In addition, a single-drug pill with extended release hydrocodone was approved by the fda, but is not on the market. It does not have a formulation that deters abuse, and many of us are very concerned about a product with lots of hydrocodone (possibly 30 mg).

Yes: This is a completely safe medication in pregnancy. There is no evidence of harm to the baby. Paracetamol is the same medication as Acetaminophen or tylenol (acetaminophen). You should use it as directed on the bottle.

Yes: Yes it will. However, take sparingly as most hydrocodone preparations are combined with Acetaminophen which can "stress" the liver. Liver inflammation is present in mononucleosis.

Death: Paracetemol is in essence a form of tylenol (acetaminophen) sold outside the us. Overdose leads to rapid liver failure and death. I dont suggest doing it.
A 36-year-old member asked:

Is it okay to take tylenol (acetaminophen) after drinking?

Dr. Ankush Bansal
Internal Medicine 17 years experience
Very little: It is not recommended to combine the two because both alcohol and tylenol (acetaminophen) are metabolized in the liver. Hepatic toxicity due to tylenol (acetaminophen) is very serious and can lead to problems as severe as liver failure requiring transplant or death. This is not common if taking the recommended dosage but the maximum dose is limited a lot briefly after drinking alcohol, depending on how much you drank.
