Hello doctor,

My stomach hurts. I took Tylenol two hours later after drinking vodka now my head is paining from the back to the neck.

Thank you.



Welcome to icliniq.com.

It is important to note that combining alcohol and Tylenol (Acetaminophen) can be harmful to the liver, especially if taken in large amounts. Alcohol can increase the toxic effects of Tylenol on the liver. So it is generally recommended to avoid drinking while taking Tylenol. If you are experiencing stomach pain and headache after drinking vodka and taking Tylenol, it could be due to a variety of reasons, such as:

  1. Hangover: Consuming alcohol can lead to dehydration and cause hangover symptoms such as headache and stomach pain.
  2. Acetaminophen toxicity: If you have taken a high dose of Acetaminophen after drinking, it can cause liver damage or failure.
  3. Gastrointestinal issues: Alcohol can irritate the stomach lining and cause pain or discomfort, especially if consumed on an empty stomach.

Feel free to contact me for further queries.

Thank you.
