Try healing herbs: Excessive/prolonged acetaminophen can cause serious liver damage but our livers also have a great capacity to heal.
I advise a good multivitamin like ONE Multivitamin from Pure Encapsulations and a herbal formula called LIV 52 (check online) proven to help a variety of liver issues. Also NAC protects against acetaminophen toxicity so try 600 mg 2x/day on an empty stomach. Also avoid dietary GMO's.
