In brief: Not a good combo

Proper degradation of paracetamol depends on healthy liver and whiskey, especially in excess, is not a good thing for the liver. High doses of paracetamol and whiskey together can be quite dangerous--liver failure.
I would advise good judgement on this one. You have only one liver! be good, be safe, be alive! consult doc if you need meds for treating pain/fever/headaches? Good luck.
