if a person overdose on tylenol pm,like 10 pills and didn`t get send to the hospital, feel better after resting for 2 days ( only felt irregular heartbeat and very dizzy )Drank acohols on the third day. would tylenol pm damage the ammune system after what happened ? or any damage in the future?
The person who overdosed on Tylenol PM should be checked by a doctor in a emergency department. The person's blood may need to be checked to know if any damage has occurred.
Tylenol PM is a mixture of acetaminophen and diphenhydramine. An overdose can cause prolonged effects.
Acetaminophen interacts with alcohol. Persons who drink 3 or more alcohol beverages a day should use acetaminophen with caution. Chronic alcoholics should avoid using acetaminophen.
