Dangerous Tylenol Side Effects

Our Mass Tort Attorneys Warn of Liver Disease

Photo of acetaminophenAcetaminophen overdoses cause hundreds of deaths each year. When taken at appropriate doses, acetaminophen can be an effective painkiller. However, with many products containing acetaminophen in addition to recent Tylenol warnings about batches of medication that contain too much of the toxin, how are consumers supposed to know what is or is not safe?

For years, negligent drug companies, including the owner of Tylenol, a subsidiary of the pharmaceutical giant Johnson & Johnson called McNeil Consumer Healthcare, have sold these acetaminophen medications with inadequate warnings about dangerous acetaminophen side effects that may negatively affect your health.

Our Tylenol attorneys believe that this failure to warn individuals about the potential risks associated with Tylenol side effects is unfair to victims who sustain personal injuries as well as other health problems through no fault of their own. You may be entitled to join a Tylenol lawsuit if you are experiencing complications from an unintentional acetaminophen overdose. Call our firm at 888-841-9623 to learn more about your legal rights.

Are You Suffering from Tylenol Side Effects?

Individuals who use Tylenol or other acetaminophen products such as NyQuil, Excedrin or Vicodin may be at risk for the following serious health problems:

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

The Tylenol side effects found above can occur suddenly after a large dose of medication containing acetaminophen, but can also occur over the course of several days or weeks after long-term usage of acetaminophen. It is important to consult with a medical professional regarding decreasing or stopping use of acetaminophen products such as Tylenol if you believe you may be suffering from liver injuries.

You need to protect your legal rights if you or a loved one is suffering from acetaminophen poisoning. Drug makers like McNeil Consumer Healthcare have a duty to provide safe and effective products to consumers. When they fail in this responsibility, victims have the right to hold companies accountable for their negligence. Unfortunately, it is true that many manufacturers of dangerous drugs and defective medical devices deliberately hide or cover up health risks with the intention of making more profits selling the unsafe product than they will have to pay out to victims.
