Why Are Many Concerned with the Side Effects of Tylenol?

Since 1951, Tylenol has been recommended in the United States for treating a variety of aches and pains. Acetaminophen is the active ingredient in Tylenol, and it is usually praised for being gentle on the stomach when mixed with other medicines. However, studies have shown that the side effects of Tylenol and acetaminophen could easily outweigh the benefits of taking it.

Users of Tylenol and other acetaminophen products could face the following risks:

  • Acute or severe liver damage
  • Abdominal pain or swelling
  • Abnormal bleeding or bruising
  • Liver failure
  • Jaundice
  • Coma
  • Other liver injuries

Can Tylenol Reduce Back Pain?

The Sentinel says, “There are countless advertisements purporting the incredible relief that can be achieved by simply popping a few pills.” Unfortunately, these ads mislead the consumers about the effectiveness and the detrimental effects of drugs like Tylenol.

For instance, studies have shown that Tylenol is as effective at mitigating lower back pain as a placebo. In other words, Tylenol’s pain reducing effects are negligible.
