How long between taking 1000mg of Tylenol in the afternoon and consuming a few drinks in the evening. I only drink socially maybe once or twice a week, never more than that.
The recommended limit for acetaminophen in someone who consumes two or more drinks per day is 3000mg but I have seen cases where less acetaminophen than the recommended amount was taken with moderate drinking and it damaged the liver beyond repair. One of my good friends is dead because she was taking Tylenol and drinking 2-3 glasses of wine each evening. She went into liver failure, was told she needed a transplant but she died before getting it. It is just not good to take the chance. If you are using Tylenol, dont drink, or if you want to drink, dont use Tylenol. It isnt worth the risk. Tylenol is on of the most hepatotoxic (liver damaging) drugs out there. There are a lot of medical professionals that think it should be removed from the shelf because of this. You also have to consider all the other products that contain acetaminophen. Many Cold and Sinus tablets have acetaminophen as an example, as well as preparations for menstrual cramping, and pills for "minor headaches and muscle pains" and many people take these not realizing that each drug may contain very large amounts of acetaminophen. Be sure to read labels and be aware of all sources of the drug and be sure that you keep usage under 3000mg for ALL sources of the drug.
