No: Tylenol (acetaminophen) is not a risk factor for kidney cancer. Tylenol (acetaminophen) can cause injury to other organs such as the liver and stomach lining but it does increase one's chances of kidney cancer.

YES: If you have to take the tyelnol more than weekly for your headache; see your doctor to find out the cause of the headache. Tylenol (acetaminophen) is removed by the liver so make sure you don't have liver problems or other medications that may interact with the tylenol (acetaminophen) or cause problems for the liver in combination. Your doctor should be able to help you identify potential problems.

Sounds like: Sounds like this patient's psychiatrist would like to see the patient again soon, because Prozac (fluoxetine) + off-label use of Gabapentin does not seem to be having its desired effect. Hopefully this patient is also in psychotherapy as well -- many ways to deal with anxiety can be learned there.
