Acetaminophen: I doubt it. You may want to wash it all down with a large glass of water... Or take some milk of magnesia (magnesium hydroxide). But, for full tummy and bloating i doubt that Acetaminophen will help much.

No: Your body will ingest and absorb the sugars from a brief over ingestion. Acetominophen will have no effect on this and will not affect the absorption.
