Acetaminophen and Your Liver: What’s Safe?
Talk to Your Doctor
If you have more than three alcoholic drinks a day or have liver disease, ask your doctor before you take anything that has acetaminophen in it. In these cases, even the recommended dose could make liver damage more likely.
5 Overdose Warning Signs
If you think you may have accidentally taken too much acetaminophen, you may have:
- Loss of appetite
These symptoms may not start until hours after you've taken the drug. By the time you notice something’s wrong, your liver may already be severely damaged.
If you have questions about whether you took the right amount, call your local poison control center, which will tell you if you need to go to the ER. If you think someone may have overdosed, call 911.
