In brief: Not every day

It happens, obviously frequency depends on volume of patients seen.
It is not a frequent er presentation in my experience.

In brief: Yes

In pain management, virtually every patient we see on more than 3 gm or 3000 mg a day has measurable liver damage.
Usually not irreversible if caught early enough and the apap (acetaminophen) is stopped.
