Cure for the common hangover worse for your liver than the booze?

Posted by gnn1 on Saturday, 29 September 2007

You go out with your friends or co-workers Friday night, and Saturday morning, you feel the miniature construction crew attempting to split your head open with a jack-hammer.   Most of us have been there.

And most of us make a pot of strong coffee and head for the Tylenol (Paracetamol in UK).  Scientists are now saying “Don’t.”

While it has long been recognised that ingesting large amounts of alcohol whilst taking acetaminophen could cause serious, even potentially fatal, interactions, scientists are just now saying that there could also be problems with taking the painkiller with caffeine.

The findings are preliminary, but scientists are still urging consumers to limit all caffeinated beverage–including energy drinks–whilst using acetaminophen.

People who use certain medications, including certain anti-epileptic medications and St John’s Wort, are more susceptible to negative effects from the combination of alcohol and acetaminophen.
