One of the main functions of your liver is to purify waste products, drugs, and toxins. When a person takes Tylenol, their liver will break down the drug into other chemicals. It is possible that a portion of Tylenol can be metabolized into a harmful toxin known as NAPQI. For some patients, it is possible for a large amount of toxic by-product to build up, resulting in liver failure. Ron Bell would like you to know what factors make it more likely that you or a loved one could suffer liver failure due to Tylenol.
If you are taking prescription drugs that contain acetaminophen as well as Tylenol, you are at higher risk of liver failure. Be aware of acetaminophen in your prescription drugs. In January 2011, the FDA made it mandatory for prescription medications containing acetaminophen to update their labels with boxed warnings about risk of liver injury. Anyone who has poor nutrition or is fasting or eating less that 500 calories per day may also be at risk of acetaminophen-related liver failure. This is because their bodies may be unable to process the drug as well as healthy users.
In 2011 Tylenol lawsuits were consolidated into one court in Pennsylvania to save money and resources for everyone involved. Currently Tylenol lawsuits are pending in federal court. Tylenol lawsuits are complicated, so it’s important to talk to an attorney that is knowledgeable so that you may be able to receive compensation. Ron Bell can help you if you or a loved one have taken Tylenol and suffered acute or sudden liver failure, hospitalization due to liver failure, liver transplant, or death.
