Brief Answer: Acetaminophen side effects Detailed Answer: Hello.Delighted to be able to help Acetaminophen is one of the most widely used painkillers. It is not a potent painkiller but not have adverse effects of antiinflammatories (gastric damage) and no adverse effects of opioids (dependence and withdrawal, drowsiness).Adverse effects (occurring occasionally) associated with the intake of Acetaminophen are nausea, vomiting, anemia, mouth ulcers or difficulty in urination.Consequently your symptoms may be related to intake of Acetaminophen.Prolonged use of high doses of acetaminophen (more than 4000 mg per day) may cause liver toxicity,especially if combined with alcohol or drugs such as isoniazid, carbamazepine or phenytoin.
