Who is at risk for Tylenol poisoning?

ANSWER

If your liver is already damaged because of infection, alcohol abuse, or another illness, you may be more likely to have further damage from an acetaminophen overdose. Anyone taking medications with acetaminophen shouldn't drink alcohol.

Long-term use of acetaminophen in recommended doses hasn't been shown to be harmful to the liver.
