Acetaminophen Blood Thinner
Does acetaminophen affect blood pressure? Is safe to take if you have a history of elevated blood pressure?
I recently stopped taking acetaminophen on a daily basis about 2 weeks ago. Now I am having blood in my stool (3x now) and back pain, what should I do?
See doctor: Tylenol should not cause blood in the stool. If it was being used for back pain, that may be why you are having back pain now. However, anytime there is blood in the stool, that needs to be evaluated by a doctor to rule out many possibilities with the colon, stomach, or esophagus. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›

Have the flu. Just noticed blood in my stool. It's red, not black. Been taking lots of acetaminophen and ibuprofen. Also took tamiflu.

Having said that, the two continuous glucose monitors (CGMs) on the market in the USA (Dexcom & Medtronic) are affected by paracetamol; if you use one of them and take paracetamol, the readings are not accurate until the paracetamol is out of your system. Good luck! ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
Is it possible to combine my blood pressure drug: exforge, with other pain killers such as tylenol, panadol etc..?
Yes : This drug is a combination of amlodipine and valsartan. These are safe drugs with Tylenol. Panadol is also acetaminophen. Please do not take both . I would try to avoid NSAIDs such as advil as this can contribute to hypertension. Follow the label for correct dosing. The amount of Tylenol you can take is reduced with age and liver disease. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
