Do doctors see a lot of patients with acetaminophen overdose?

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

Tylenol (acetaminophen) OD? Hi. Tylenol (acetaminophen) overdose can cause irreversible damage to the liver and be fatal, and furthermore, time to treatment is vitally important. Since I don't know what you mean by "Tylenol (acetaminophen) overdose" (how much or when you took it), and the ER treated you with charcoal, maybe they're on top of it. I don't know what "Valtin" is; standard treatment is 2-mercaptoethanol or N-acetylcysteine. Stay on top of this.
