Tylenol + Alcohol Hurts Kidneys
A study recently released by the American Public Health Association (APHA) found that the combination of alcohol and acetaminophen (the primary ingredient in Tylenol) could have a negative impact on a person’s kidneys: “Results from the study indicated that neither taking a therapeutic amount of acetaminophen nor consuming a light to moderate amount of alcohol posed a particularly greater risk to an individual’s kidneys. However, when taken in combination with one another, results showed a 123 percent increase in risk of kidney dysfunction.”
All drugs have side effects. Mixing drugs with alcohol can elevate those side effects significantly.
