Today, more than 450 over-the-counter and prescription medications in Canada contain acetaminophen, including: TYLENOL®, Buckley’s Complete®, BENYLIN®, DayQuil®/NyQuil®, Percocet® and Tramadol®, just to name a few. In addition, many other medicines used to treat pain, fever, symptoms associated with allergies, cold/flu and pain with accompanying sleeplessness contain acetaminophen. Some people accidentally exceed the recommended dose when taking multiple products at the same time, often without realizing they contain acetaminophen or by not reading and following the dosing instructions. Acetaminophen is safe when used as directed, but if you take too much, it could harm your liver.
