Tylenol can effect the liver and kidneys if taken in excess .If your dose daily is less than 1000mg you should be all right Good Luck

Daily Tylenol can eventuate in a chronic daily headache pattern and thus commonly backfires. See a neurologist and get appropriate preventative therapy. You likely also have chronic sinus issues
