It is an ingredient in Excedrin, cold medications, and many prescription medications including oxycodone. Although there are safety concerns with acetaminophen (and almost any other drug), it has many benefits. To prevent liver damage, never take more Tylenol or other acetaminophen drug than is recommended.
