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. I Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help.If you do not have any clarifications, please don’t forget to evaluate my answer.I wish you good health.

Hey there, I was just bathing my 4month daughter and as I was getting he out I slipped on the wet floor, causing her to go under for a moment and also unfortunately causing her to bump her head on the bath also. She has a red bump on her head, and is a little lethargic (although she is due to go to sleep as well) Should I keep her awake? or can she go to sleep while I monitor her closely? I have also given her panadol to help with the pain she may be feeling after the bump.

She has an ear infection and RSV and I thought I was giving her Tylenol the second time but instead gave her two doses of ibprofen. She fell asleep. Should I be worried?
