I overdosed on 30, 000 mg Tylenol as a kid, I've had cholestasis and hepatic fits ever since, I feel terrible but blood work looks good, why is that?

I overdosed on 30, 000 mg Tylenol as a kid, I've had cholestasis and hepatic fits ever since, I feel terrible but blood work looks good, why is that?

Liver toxicity: Tylenol overdose is very common and can be fatal. It can lead to liver failure. Disorders of the liver can cause cholestasis. It appears the Tylenol overdose may have caused liver damage. I highly suggest you have regular check-ups in a clinic or private physicians office. ...Read more

2weeks ago took 12 500mg tylenol (acetaminophen) in 24 hours had blood test week later normal should I be able to forget about it now? Took them every 4 hours

Depends on reason: You should be fine by now but the reason is important. Was this directed by your medical provider or was this a dosage you decided for yourself. In the future ask your provider if you are instructed to take more than 8 in 24 hours as to why. If you self-decided this dose in the future check with your medical provider before you start to take them to ensure the reason matches the dosage. ...Read more

Is it normal for blood pressure to jump from 114/78 to 127/85 five minutes after taking Tylenol (acetaminophen)?

Is it normal for blood pressure to jump from 114/78 to 127/85 five minutes after taking Tylenol (acetaminophen)?

Tylenol (acetaminophen) not a part: It is unlikely that Tylenol (acetaminophen) has caused your blood pressure to increase. A more reasonable explanation would be that your blood pressure increased slightly (and appropriately) when you moved around to get the Tylenol (acetaminophen) and your drink. If you suspect the medication as the cause, recheck your BP before and after taking it again, but remain still between measurements. ...Read more

Does tylenol (acetaminophen) thin blood like aspirin?

Does tylenol (acetaminophen) thin blood like aspirin?

No: Mechanism of tylenol (acetaminophen) not exactly known but it is not considered an anti-platelet medication and so does not cause an increased tendency to bleed unless overdose occurs and liver function is impaired. Liver is responsible for many clotting factors. Routine tylenol (acetaminophen) does not predispose to significant bleeding risk. ...Read more

Dr. Neel Karne I do have an ulcer have had 4 blood trans. Get mth toradol shots 20+ tylenol (acetaminophen) a day no relief at all. Considering Suicide?

Dr. Neel Karne I do have an ulcer have had 4 blood trans. Get mth toradol shots 20+ tylenol (acetaminophen) a day no relief at all. Considering Suicide?

Not suicide!: This is a time to work closely with the physician who can treat the ulcer. BTW, I've heard that toradol can cause gastric bleeding, so It's hard to understand why, w/ an ulcer, mthly use of a short-term pain killer is a good choice. Also, over 3, 000 mg tylenol (acetaminophen) per day is risky. If you really feel suicidal - get psychiatric help ASAP - you hurt enough already. Please don't make life worse. Best! ...Read more

Is it possible to combine my blood pressure drug: exforge, with other pain killers such as tylenol, (acetaminophen) panadol etc.?

Yes: This drug is a combination of amlodipine and valsartan. These are safe drugs with Tylenol. Panadol is also acetaminophen. Please do not take both. I would try to avoid NSAIDs such as advil (ibuprofen) as this can contribute to hypertension. Follow the label for correct dosing. The amount of Tylenol you can take is reduced with age and liver disease. ...Read more

Assuming: Assuming the er physician felt your infants fever was due to a viral illness, you can observe at home if your infant is alert, eating well, having his usual number of wet diapers every few hours, no breathing difficulty and not fussy or irritable. 99.9 is not considered a fever. No need to give tylenol (acetaminophen) for 99. Always call your regular physician to see if a trip to the er is needed. ...Read more

I'm 53 years of age im a female living with high blood pressure is enteric coated Tylenol (acetaminophen) safe?

Tylenol (acetaminophen): Apparently studies indicate Tylenol (acetaminophen) may be linked to some elevation in blood pressure and you monitor dosing. A toxic dose is > 4000 mg/day (it is a liver toxin) so ask you doctor about use if you have liver disease and NO alcohol. ASA has not been linked to increase in HTN. Please discuss use with your doctor, as he knows about your HTN ...Read more

I take hctz for high blood pressure and tylenol (acetaminophen) after 1 hour I start trembling and get cold. What is wrong with me.

I take hctz for high blood pressure and tylenol (acetaminophen) after 1 hour I start trembling and get cold. What is wrong with me.

Recheck BP: Tylenol (acetaminophen) does not interact with hctz. I wonder if you feel that way because your blood pressure drops too low 1 hour after the hctz. Check your blood pressure before hctz, then recheck it 1-2 hours after hctz both while your standing and laying down. If its below 90/60 it is too low. ...Read more
