Alcohol & Acetaminophen a Cautionary Tale

Alcohol & Acetaminophen could be trouble for your Liver.
Especially for people who take acetaminophen to combat their hangover. Like many drugs, acetaminophen is metabolized by your liver. A small percentage is converted into a compound NAPQI (it is normally abbreviated) which typically is harmless because your body combines it with glutathione. But if there is too much NAPQI and not enough glutathione, which can occur from a poor diet or nutritional deficiencies, liver damage can occur.

Pass on Tylenol, Advil and reach for a hangover supplement.

Excessive drinking can damage the liver, what if you combine that with acetaminophen?
If you consume a lot of booze one night and take a normal dose of acetaminophen to deal with the hangover in the morning, you probably are not going to have liver problems. It also seems that heavy drinkers aren’t any more likely than nondrinkers to suffer liver damage from a single large dose of acetaminophen. The trouble starts when regular heavy drinkers take a lot of acetaminophen over a period of time — several days, at least, and maybe longer. (for this ‘heavy drinkers’ are defined as people who regularly have three or more drinks a day.) A drinking habit, a poor diet and nutritional deficiencies often go hand in hand. Multiple high doses of acetaminophen are more dangerous for drinkers partly because their glutathione levels tend to be low because their diet is typically less than ideal. Drinking also tends to alter the metabolism of acetaminophen that results in more NAPQI production. Which can more NAPQI can lead to liver damage. So a regular drinker should be cautious of regular acetaminophen consumption.
