9 Foods You Should NEVER Mix with Your Medication
Alcohol & Acetaminophen
Acetaminophen is just a fancy name for Tylenol – one of the most popular go-to remedies against those annoying hangovers.
However, if you’re planning to drink alcohol again, you should definitely stay away from this quick remedy. Why?
Jessica Nouhavandi, co-CEO and co-founder of Honeybee Health in California, explains that when you combine acetaminophen with alcohol ‘you may be at an increased risk of liver toxicity.’
And while you may get away with a very small quantity of alcohol after taking Tylenol, you’ll certainly increase your risk of liver toxicity if you’re a regular drinker.
What does ‘regular drinker’ mean? According to Dr. Nouhavandi, it means consuming at least three alcoholic beverages daily (beer included).
Thankfully, you can avoid the risks by limiting your alcohol intake whenever you’re taking acetaminophen; the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends sticking to one drink for women and two drinks for men a day.
