Tylenol Side Effects
Johnson & Johnson, the drugs manufacturer, recalled Tylenol in 2010 due to complaints from consumers that a musty smell was originating from certain bottles. The Food & Drug Administration recalled Tylenol that same year for the same issue and after a thorough investigation the administration found bacteria on machinery that was used to make the medication at a factory in Pennsylvania.
Some side effects associated with Tylenol use included:
- Extreme fatigue
- Stomach pain
- Discolored urine
- Liver disorders
- Allergic reactions (hives, itching, swelling in the face or hands)
In extreme cases Tylenol was linked to liver failure and death. Some European countries, such as Switzerland and New Zealand, have placed limits on how much acetaminophen a consumer may buy at a time in order to prevent the risks of serious side effects.
