Tylenol (acetaminophen) warning: in order to determine the cause of your throbbing head you need to see your primary care physician. Be careful with how much Tylenol (acetaminophen) you take as it can damage your liver if taken in excess. Your throbbing head pain could have absolutely nothing to do with the fact that you drank too much alcohol a week ago.
