No : Aspirin is not toxic to the liver the way alcohol is. By contrast, the active ingredient in tylenol (acetaminophen) is highly toxic to the liver in large doses. People who drink alcohol excessively are at increased risk of liver damage if they take excessive doses of tylenol or other drugs that contain acetaminophen. <a href="http://www.Healthtap.Com">healthtap</a>.
