Health Tips - Liver Failure Risk with Common Drugs

Liver Failure Risk with Common Drugs

Acetaminophen (pronounced uh-SEE-tuh-MIN-uh-fen) or Paracetamol is the key ingredient in many drugs. It is abbreviated APAP and is widely used for the relief of pain, fever, and headaches. Unlike the painkillers aspirin and ibuprofen, it is not an anti-inflammatory drug.

Overdoses of acetaminophen can cause liver damage which can lead to death. While thought of as safe at recommended doses, in rare individuals, a normal dose can cause death through liver failure. The risk is worsened by alcohol or other liver stressors.

Acetaminophen toxicity is the number one cause of acute liver failure in the Western world, and accounts for most drug overdoses in the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand. So, where is the FDA?
