  1. It’s not a good idea to recommend Tylenol after or during drinking. Both alcohol and Tylenol are processed via the liver. This can cause serious damage and possibly death.

    • Marci — Thank you for the comment. So long as the dosage information is followed, then Tylenol should still be safe. You are correct, however, that taking more than the recommended dosage can be a serious problem with Tylenol in any case (whether drinking or not). Joe
