Tylenol Causes Liver Damage?

A recent study at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, has highlighted serious risks associated with painkiller Tylenol. The study shows that people who took the maximum recommended dose of acetaminophen (Tylenol) developed worrying blood abnormalities that could mean damage has been caused to the liver. Consumers are advised to be careful with their use of Tylenol and to look for "hidden" acetaminophen in other drug products. Tylenol with codeine is often prescribed as a painkiller for patients after auto accidents.
