I heard not to take tylenol (acetaminophen) with green tea extract diet supplements what about regular green tea in a cup? Specifically decaf green tea bags

In brief: Caffeine interaction

The concern is not green tea per se but that high doses of caffeine can increase toxicity of tylenol (acetaminophen) to the liver. Some green tea diet supplements are high in caffeine but regular green tea is quite safe, either decaf or regular- it would take about 100 cups of green tea to get too much caffeine.
