Tylenol® (acetaminophen) is an over the counter medication used to relieve pain and reduce fever. Tylenol® was popularized in the 1950’s and touted as an alternative to Aspirin that was gentler on the stomach and could be ingested without food. Tylenol® is manufactured by Johnson & Johnson.

Side Effects

  • Liver damage
  • Liver Failure

Individuals may be at particular risk of liver damage when taking Tylenol® on an empty stomach. This is concerning, since often times people take Tylenol® when they are sick and may not be eating as much as they usually would.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has investigated and issued advisories that the warning label on Tylenol® should be strengthened considering the risk of potential liver damage when taking this medicine.
