  •  OTOH, you can have too much of a good thing. (3+ / 0-)

    Our hospital system seems to aim at pre-empting pain so it doesn't keep building and lead to chronic pain.  That has to be good!  Unless you've spent two and a half months out of three in hospital and they feed you Tylenol four times a day even when you're not feeling any pain.

    That's my story and I had a very, very rare reaction to Tylenol that caused acute kidney failure due to pyroglutamic acidosis.  Fortunately, my husband and a nure realized I had some sort of problem and pushed for some action.  Even more fortunately, one session of dialysis turned me around completely.  

    I can vaguely remember a very distinguished looking doctor sitting at my bedside and telling me in a quiet but serious voice that I had been very sick and had come close to dying.  Had I been drinking, that would have sobered me up immediately.

    •  Tylenol is dangerous. A significant % of people on (0+ / 0-)

      the liver transplant list are there because they made 'suicide gestures' by OD'ing on Tylenol. 'Cause they thought it was harmless.
