Atlanta Personal Injury Attorneys File Tylenol Liver Failure Lawsuits

Tylenol/Acetaminophen was approved as a pain medication in the United States in 1950. A Food and Drug Administration panel tried in June 2009 to eliminate prescription drugs that combine acetaminophen with other painkilling ingredients, recommending they be pulled off the market. These drugs include Percocet and Vicodin, two of the most heavily prescribed painkillers. Both combine acetaminophen with a habit-forming opiate.

Sypmpthomos of acute liver failure due to tylenol/acetaminophen include the following conditions:

  • Vomiting, diarrhea, or upset stomach
  • Bleeding
  • Hives or rash
  • Pain in the upper right abdomen
  • Lack of energy or extreme tiredness

  • Sweating
  • Jaundice (yellow skin) or icterus (yellow eyes)
  • Confusion or irritability
  • Coma
  • Convulsions
