WATCH WHAT YOU ARE DOING …..

Pillsslideshow1Acetominophen is the chemical name for Tylenol, and although safe in low and moderate doses, it can cause issues if taken to excess.  The issues:  Liver injury (even liver failure) and kidney disease.

Due to unintended Tylenol overdose, the FDA is focusing a strong warning on products that contain Acetominophen as as ‘added’ medications in over-the-counter and prescription medications.  So do be careful to watch for this medication in combination cold medications and in pain medications.

The goal is to keep the dosing below 3000mg generally, and 4000mg total daily as a certainty.
