In brief: Oral form

Taking pills is less painful and much safer than getting a shot.
Acetaminophen is going to go to the liver no matter how it's adminstered. Whoever is telling you this stuff about acetaminophen being dangerous to your loved one with cirrhosis is doing a disservice. It's metabolized slower so use a low dose. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2861975/
