Can taking a lot of tylenol (acetaminophen) pm cause bi polar moods to be more extreme?

Can taking a lot of tylenol (acetaminophen) pm cause bi polar moods to be more extreme?

Kills liver cells: Worst thing about tylenol (acetaminophen) is that taking as little as 3000 mg per day (6 extra strength pills) can cause fatal liver damage. Healthy adults who do not drink alcohol might be able to recover but still, this is the biggest risk of fatality for almost any drug currently on the market, let alone something available without prescription. I would worry more about liver than bipolar if taking a lot. ...Read more

A panic attack may be a one-time occurrence, but many people experience repeat episodes. Recurrent panic attacks are often triggered by a specific situation, such as speaking in public, especially if that situation has caused a panic before. ...Read more
