What kind of damages happen to a person when they take 20 tylenol everyday since march?
Added 4 Dec 2010:
i need to know if a person doing this has any more severe damage to the body than just the liver, can the person die from doing this too ?
Added 4 Dec 2010:
what kind of damage would this do to a person's heart , lungs, stomach and etc ?? would this shut down a person's lungs and heart & etc. , especially if that person already had such health problems as severe copd, & asthma & low iron, for which that person has quit taking the medicines for those problems coming 1 yr ago in less than 10 days from now ?
You wont die from it in the short -term but Tylenol wreaks havoc in your liver ,it is so bad for your liver I dont see how its legal.Alot of drug addicts have severe liver problems from taking hydrocodone and Tylenol(APAP) because some people get such a tolerence that they take 30-40 pills at a time and all that Tylenol does heavy damage to your liver,so even if they get clean they might have liver problems down the road such as hardened liver,jaundice etc... Hope this helped
RemSupreme is right about liver damage from too much acetaminophen. A good source for your paper would be right here on DC. Go to the Drugs A to Z at the top of this page and look up acetaminophen. Try to find the professional or advanced section. It will give you all the info you need including clinical studies. Good luck on your paper!
