How long should you wait to drink alcohol after taking the recommended dose of extra strength tylenol (acetaminophen) pm?

Tylenol (acetaminophen) and Alcohol: I may be going against the grain here, but please if you are drinking do not use any product with acetominophen or tylenol (acetaminophen).

And this toxicity can increase with ongoing use of both of these products: alcohol and tylenol (acetaminophen). ...Read more

I had some tylenol (acetaminophen) at 4:30pm. I want to drink alcohol at 9:30pm. Is this safe? Most people recommend 2-6 hours, just want to be sure.

Should be fine: Alcohol and Acetaminophen compete in the liver for the process that breaks down the toxic features of each. As long as you are not overloading these sites, you are safe. Chronic alcohol use can damage these areas and make the remaining sites have to work overtime. If you do as you say, you are helping your liver work for you. ...Read more

What can cause liver enzymes to increase significantly? I'm a healthy  female except overweight & low vitamin d. I don't drink alcohol or use tylenol (acetaminophen).

Liver enzymes: Liver performs many functions, one of which is processing meds/drugs/supplements/food additives/etc. Any of those can raise liver enzymes.

Can I drink alcohol while taking nyquil?

Not a good idea: Nyquil itself contains about 20% alcohol, but more importantly excessive alcohol is bad for the immune system, and itself makes many cold symptoms (particularly nasal stuffiness) worse. Adding additional alcohol to nyquil increases the chance of intoxication, which aside from being illegal at your age, is dangerous, particularly behind the wheel of a car or anything similar. ...Read more

Can I drink alcohol while taking amox tr-k?

Alcohol & antibiotic: If you are on antibiotics for an infection, that means your body needs help. Alcohol is actually a toxin- although we are not used to thinking of it that way. So I don't think it's a good idea really to be drinking when on antibiotics for something. That said, there aren't any major drug interactions to worry about. Best to take it easy on yourself. ...Read more
