Tylenol & Acetaminophen Uses
Tylenol and acetaminophen are some of the most popular pain relievers in the United States, with this over-the-counter medication in nearly every American’s medicine cabinet. Tylenol (acetaminophen), manufactured by Johnson & Johnson, is commonly used to relieve pain and reduce fever. Unfortunately, because Tylenol is so widely used and is available without a prescription, many consumers believe the drug is without adverse side effects. This is definitely not the case.
Tylenol & Acetaminophen Side Effects
As early as the 1990s, researchers were devoting their attention to the adverse effects of Tylenol and acetaminophen, and more recent studies have linked the drug to serious side effects resulting from acetaminophen overdose.
The most common side effects potentially associated with Tylenol use include:
- Sudden liver damage
- Sudden liver failure
In light of this liver failure side effect risk, the FDA announced in January 2011 that it was advising manufacturers of acetaminophen-containing medications to limit the maximum amount of acetaminophen in their products. In July 2011, Johnson & Johnson finally decreased the maximum daily recommended dose of Tylenol from 4,000 mg to 3,000 mg. This action was taken in an attempt to reduce the risk of liver failure associated with Tylenol overdose and acetaminophen overdose.
