Tylenol (acetaminophen): Apparently studies indicate Tylenol (acetaminophen) may be linked to some elevation in blood pressure and you monitor dosing. A toxic dose is > 4000 mg/day ( it is a liver toxin) so ask you doctor about use if you have liver disease and NO alcohol. ASA has not been linked to increase in HTN. Please discuss use with your doctor, as he knows about your HTN
