Studies have shown that acetaminophen, sold under the brand name Tylenol, is a leading cause of acute liver failure.
A federal court jury awarded $7.855 million to a man who claimed that the loss of his liver was the result of his taking Tylenol in combination with his regular consumption of wine at dinner.
Many people are probably unaware of how many over-the-counter medications contain acetaminophen. Typically, cold medicines include the pain reliever/fever reducer in their compositions, but there are other medications that might contain small amounts.
The greatest danger of a Tylenol overdose is liver damage. Tylenol’s active ingredient, acetaminophen, is toxic to the liver in large doses. When acetaminophen is metabolized by the liver, the toxic chemical byproduct, N-acetyl-p-benzoquinone imine (NAPQI), is produced.
Many consumers are concerned about recent reports about Tylenol (acetaminophen) recalls, as well as potential liver damage that can occur when taking the over-the-counter pain medication. It is often very easy to take too much of the drug, especially when Tylenol is combined with other drugs.
