Some drugs are harder on the liver than others if you have liver disease ande even if you don’t you should be careful with Tylenol to not take more than the daily recommended dose. Even healthy people can overdose on Tylenol andcause sudden acute liver damage.

Tylenol is often in multisymptom medicines so if you are taking a multisymptom medicine and then take additional Tylenol that is where people often run into trouble so reading lables is important.

If you have liver damage you should research any medicine you are considering taking. If you have a question about a medicine you can also ask your doctor or pharmacist to see if there are any contraindications for the medicine related to risk of liver damage
