Acetaminophen And Alcohol Interaction
DEPENDS ON AMOUNT: It can be lethal if both are taken in excess.Alcohol in large amount can be rarely lethal and so is codein and acetaminophen (tylenol 3 contains Codeine and acetaminophen)alcohol and Acetaminophen in large quantitiy are toxic for liver and in large amounts can cause liver failure and large doses of Codeine can cause respiratory depression so it depends on amount ingested in combination.
Tylenol/Alcohol: Not good for stomach.Get a more detailed answer ›
Liver: The next day. Without knowing your liver health it would be weird for us physicians to give you permission to drink alcohol when you are on medication that is very hard on the liver.
Both impact liver: Since both Acetaminophen (known as tylenol (acetaminophen) - but also in many multi-drug combinations) and alcohol can have an effect on the liver, both are best used in moderation. Be especially cautious if your doctor has told you that your liver function tests are showing signs of trouble.
The longer: Is better. At least 6 hrs.Get a more detailed answer ›
Tylenol (acetaminophen): If continued regular use, yes it is possible.
No: No, it is not safe. Nyquil contains other ingredients that are not safe to take with alcohol, either.
In high doses, yes: Too much alcohol is damaging to the liver. Too much Acetaminophen is damaging to the liver. The two together have a synergistic effect, which means the two together are more damaging than high doses of either one alone. So very high doses at one time could be fatal, and moderate doses over time with the two may cause eventual liver failure.See 1 more doctor answer
Does hydrocodone bitartrate and acetaminophen oral solution contain 7% alcohol per dose or per bottle?
Its the same 7%: Its a percentage, so regardless of the volume (dose or bottle), its going to be 7% of that volume. Hope that helps.

How long after last consuming alcohol do you have to wait before taking tylenol (acetaminophen)? The alcohol consumed was 3 standard drinks, 24 hours ago.
You are clear to use: The alcohol is broken down in the liver using the same toxin removal system as the acetaminophen. If used at the same time their is some chance of a toxic effect on the delicate liver cells. Since the half life of alcohol is a couple of hours, the material is long gone and you can use the medication without any problem.
Exactly how long must you wait before consuming alcohol after a single 500-mg dose of tylenol (acetaminophen) assuming no more tylenol (acetaminophen) is taken? 24 hours? 48? 72?
Anytime: Anytime you want.Get a more detailed answer ›
This past week I have a taken acetaminophen with alcohol I believe 2 or 3 times. I have stopped after seeing it causes liver damage. Will I be ok?
No.: It is ill advised to consume these together. Both are metabolized in the liver and concurrent use can be dangerous.See 1 more doctor answer
