Some forms of combination pain pills had as much as 750 mg of tylenol in them, but recent FDA regulations require that no more than 325 mg of tylenol be in any single tablet of combination medications. More than 10 grams (20 extra strength pills) can be lethal, less with alcohol. ...Read more

Can antabuse (disulfiram) damage the liver? Can drinking alcohol twice while on antabuse (disulfiram) damage the liver?
Antabuse (disulfiram): Drinking damages liver way more than Antabuse (disulfiram) does. Antabuse (disulfiram) is fairly low risk as far as liver damage. I would not compromise on drinking while on Antabuse (disulfiram) due to severe interaction side effects Antabuse (disulfiram) and drinking have. It looks, though, that it really doesn't work in your case if you're planning to drink while taking it. I would seek another way of quitting drinking. ...Read more

Be careful.: Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) is partially metabolized in the liver. Taking it will not damage the liver more, but it is possible that you may have higher levels of Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) in your system for longer periods of time, since your liver may not reliably break down the Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) as it should. Be sure your doctor who prescribed the Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) is aware of your liver problem and be on the watch for any side effects.

It's amazing: After a poisoning or acute hepatitis with 99% of the liver cells gone, they'll replace themselves in a few days. Ultramarathon runners routinely sustain extensive necrosis of liver cells and have them back in equally short order. However -- don't get smug; alcohol abuse and other unfortunate things can scar up the liver and this doesn't heal nearly so well. ...Read more
