Although its pain-relieving and fever-reducing properties have helped millions without incident, acetaminophen use can lead to severe liver damage and even death.
Fasting, alcohol use increase risk
The potential for liver failure may be greatly increased when the use of drugs containing acetaminophen is combined with alcohol, or taken during periods of fasting (due to illness, anorexia, or malnutrition). Fasting decreases levels of glutathione, an antioxidant that helps the liver detoxify acetaminophen. We believe consumers have not been adequately warned of these potential dangers.
