See doctor asap: If you are talking about tylenol, (acetaminophen) it is much more toxic in someone who is drinking that much, and if he takes 8-10 day he may be causing liver damage. If you are talking about Ibuprofen (motrin, advil) or naproxyn (alleve), it can cause stomach, liver and kidney damage, particularly when combined with alcohol. See a doctor for an evaluation as soon as possible. ...Read more
Can long term cocaine, heroin, and alcohol use cause specific heart damage such as atherosclerosis?
Alcohol is toxic and: Potentially damages everything it touches, including hearts, but also livers, kidneys, bladders, etc. Cocaine amps up everything (its a speed), plus is also toxic, so yes, it can damage tissue, too. Heroin fills up opiate receptors and in effect, turns a lot of functions off. Whenever you have tissue damage, you are likely to get inflammation, which is one cause of arterial plaque. ...Read more
