Now what's the whole issue about labels and dose?
main problem, the FDA fears that an overdose of acetaminophen - which can lead to
serious liver toxicity- can be easily reached if consumers take Tylenol or
acetaminophen-based pain medicines at different times, then took the another, over the counter medicines containing acetaminophen. Many cough and cold
medicines contain acetaminophen just like Tylenol.
