Acetaminophen (generic for Tylenol) is a pain reliever and fever reducer. Acetaminophen is used to treat pain.
Avoid if you have liver disease, and do not take with other drugs containing acetaminophen to avoid overdose.
Although typically thought of as a safe household medication, acetaminophen is actually extremely dangerous in overdose. More than 4 grams per day may result in liver failure and death. Acetaminophen overdose is the most common cause of acute liver failure in the United States. Drinking alcohol regularly or drinking alcohol while using acetaminophen increases the risk of liver failure and death.
