Your Health Nov. 4, 2013 Tylenol and alcohol mix

Posted: Updated:
Birmingham, AL -

If you take a Tylenol, don't drink alcohol at the same time.  Not even a little!
         Researchers at Parker University in Dallas say, Tylenol, also known as acetaminophen, combined with a small to moderate amount of alcohol can more than double your risk of kidney disease.   They say the risk will increase by 123 percent.
          It's become a public concern because most people take the over the counter medicine without any input from physicians or pharmacists.
         Scientists say, the finding establishes an association between an acetaminophen-and-alcohol and increased risk for kidney disease, not a direct cause-and-effect relationship.
