How Many Hours After Taking Tylenol Can You Drink
Stay away from: Alcohol. A chronic heavy drinker (3 or more drinks per day) should not take tylenol (acetaminophen) at all. If you are an occasional drinker, do not both in less than 24 hours of each other. Women are more susceptible to liver damage from this combination, hence my suggestion, stay away from alcohol. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
You don't have to: Tylenol (acetaminophen) does not cause any immediate dysfunction of your liver. Long term use of high doses can lead to liver damage, then you would have trouble with that beer. But you can certainly enjoy a beer responsibly after taking a couple of tylenol (acetaminophen) without fear of dying of liver failure. ...Read more

How much alcohol?: alcohol makes acetaminophen (tylenol) more toxic, so it depends on how much you are drinking. In general, safe drinking limits in women are no more than 1 standard drink (5 oz wine, 1 1/2 oz distilled spirits, 12 oz beer) per day, and no more than 7 drinks per week, and never more than 3 on one occasion. At a safe level, alcohol is not likely to cause harm, with or without the tylenol. ...Read more
I just took 2 Tylenol for my tooth pain. Is it safe to drink a fair amount in a few hours? I rarely drink and I rarely take Tylenol either.
Not a good idea: Get to a dentist before your tooth becomes worse. The Tylenol won't help for long. Postpone heavy drinking till after the tooth is treated or removed. While you're at the dentist get x-rays and an exam so you don't go through this again with other teeth. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
If I take Tylenol (acetaminophen) and cough medicine that are 4 hour doses, would I be safe to drink after the 4 hours are up? Or will it still be in my system.
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

my son has fever (102 f) for past 24 hours.
He is very calm and drinking water and we gave him some kid's tylenol (acetaminophen) 5 ml every 4 hours. Is he ok?
Watchful waiting: If he is calm and happy despite the fever, he may be incubating roseola which is a harmless children's illness affecting children under two. Try controlling the temp as you have, push fluids, and use tepid baths to keep him cool. If however, there is a change in his demeanor over the next day or two see his pediatrician. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Very little: It is not recommended to combine the two because both alcohol and tylenol (acetaminophen) are metabolized in the liver. Hepatic toxicity due to tylenol (acetaminophen) is very serious and can lead to problems as severe as liver failure requiring transplant or death. This is not common if taking the recommended dosage but the maximum dose is limited a lot briefly after drinking alcohol, depending on how much you drank. ...Read more
