Health Tip of the Day

Follow Label When Taking Acetaminophen

It's safe to take acetaminophen as directed on the label, but taking higher doses can lead to severe liver damage, says the Food and Drug Administration.

More than the recommended dose will not provide more relief. Don't take acetaminophen and drink alcohol.
