Acetaminophen changes the perception of pain through the body's central nervous system. When your body breaks it down, about 5% of it is metabolized into a toxin to be neutralized by l-glutathione in the liver. If you take too much for too long it overwhelms this process and damages the liver. Just so you know, Acetaminophen is one of the leading causes of hospitalization for liver failure.
When an individual has pain they tend to take extra doses to relieve the discomfort. That can effect your liver and your kidneys. Your lifestyle of enjoying even modest amounts of alcohol can be fatal. Pay attention to what the effects or side effects could be and don't think that it couldn't happen to you. There are many alternate or herbal pain relievers available. One example is Boswellia that contains boswellic acids that have been found to shrink inflamed tissue and improve blood supply to infected areas.
