Tylenol (acetaminophen): Unlikely, but don't use too much.Get a more detailed answer ›
While bending down to pick up cups from under a table at work my lower back started burning with pain. I tried icy hot patches and Tylenol (acetaminophen) buhelp help?
Back strain: You likely strained muscles/ligaments in your lower back. The best treatment is ice or heat to the area, Ibuprofen for pain if you can take this, and avoidance of lifting/bending for a few days.

If you are talking one alcoholic beverage (standard drink 12 oz beer, 5 oz ordinary wine, 1 1/2 oz distilled spirits), it would not likely be an issue, although any amount of alcohol may increase the risks of tylenol (acetaminophen) if you are taking larger doses on a regular basis (2 grams per day or more- approx 6 norcos).
