Tylenol Liver DamageTylenol is one of the most widely used over-the-counter (OTC) pain-relievers in the U.S. Unfortunately, Tylenol (acetaminophen) may cause liver damage, liver failure or even death! While generally safe in short-term use, chronic use of the drug, taking the drug at higher than recommended dosage or usage among those who drink excessive alcohol or have kidney disease can all have serious side effects such as liver failure.

A study in the July 5, 2006 Journal of the American Medical Association revealed that Tylenol may hurt the liver even at the recommended doses. In the clinical study, the highest recommended dose of Extra Strength Tylenol in healthy adults sharply increased liver enzymes, which is an early sign of possible organ damage.

Because OTC drugs, like Tylenol, do not require a prescription, many consumers mistakenly believe that these medications are completely safe.

If you or someone you love has been “diagnosed” with liver damage, liver failure or has died while taking Tylenol or acetaminophen, there may be a substantial claim against the drug manufacturer.
