Before You Take That Cold Medicine, Read This – Part 1

Acetaminophen – Many over the over pills and fluids contain this common pain reliever (the main ingredient in Tylenol). It’s also found in many cold medications.

Too much acetaminophen can lead to nausea, stomach pain, loss of appetite and ultimately to liver damage. (We don’t have to tell you that liver damage is something we want to avoid.)

Be a Romper Room Do-Bee: You should also stay away from alcohol when taking acetaminophen. And check the ingredients of all the medications you’re taking to keep yourself under that 3,000-4,000 milligram number.
