No: Do not take acetaminophen with alcohol. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex.

No: tylenol (acetaminophen) by itself should not have that effect. Tylenol (acetaminophen) can be harmful and even deadly if not taken appropriately though.

A 35-year-old member asked:

How much acetaminophen is too much?

Depends?: The recommended limit on use of Acetaminophen for adults if 4 grams a day. If you have liver disease, it is much less if any at all. Drinking alcohol would preclude these doses. "tylenol" is metabolized in the liver and anything affecting the liver is to be considered seriously. Consider alternatives such as ibuprofen. If in doubt, discuss with your pcp or with your pharmacist. Be careful!

Acetaminophen: (panadol) Acetaminophen is usually well tolerated but allergic reactions may occur as with any medication. So look for: itching, hives, rash, swelling of the face/throat/ tongue/lips/eyes/hands/ feet/ankles, or lower legs. Hoarseness, difficulty breathing or swallowing. If any breathing difficulty give epi-pen or call 911.
