      paracetamol for hangover - donít do it

      paracetamol for hangover - donít do it


      Iíve just realised that a year ago I damaged my liver (more than normal) because I took paracetamol to tackle my headache at least 3 times within 2 weeks or so. On one of those occasions I started drinking again as it was early on a Saturday afternoon on a weekend away. The other time I drank on a so called school night and needed the pills to function at work. (also took a load of coffee which also isnít good for liver after hangover)

      The 3rd time was just waking up after a heavy night but needed pills.

      Didnít quite appreciate the difference between paracetamol and ibuprofen as I just thought of them as the same thing Ė headache pills.

      Knowing this I will never take paracetamol again when I do decide to drink. Naturally itís better not to drink at all, or at the very least, donít drink too much, however, if you have to do it or you fall off a wagon please donít take paracetamol the next morning.

      Yes, it is true -and not common knowledge as it should be -that paracetamol/acetaminophen/Tylenol is actually very, very toxic to the liver, and especially if the liver is already handling high doses of alcohol. These “headache pills” simply cannot be popped like candy. You can end up with permanent liver damage and liver failure!

      Thank you for calling our attention to this.

      Kev - not to be facetious but there is a simpler answer than either paracetamol or ibuprofen or just getting through the hangover. The simple answer is not to drink. Again, not a smart aleck answer, just the simple truth. Don't drink and then no hangover and no need for pills.....

      That is the root of all problems and why we are all here.

      That's where we all were/are when we joined MWO - we couldn't seem to stop drinking. Truthfully, for me, and for a lot of others, the difficult thing was to decide not to drink again. Once the decision was made, that was that. I don't drink. Period. No matter what. AL is simply not a part of my life anymore. I actually hated drinking in the end and I guess that made it easier. I hated not being in control of myself after the first couple of drinks. I couldn't control my body or my mind and I hated that. Most people who have been living without AL for a long time will tell you the same thing - when you make that decision to not drink again - you free yourself. It is a wonderful feeling. Life will still have its ups and downs, we will still have good days and bad days, but everything can be faced and dealt with easier with a clear mind. I hope that you can soon make the decision to not drink again. Then you will be free to be the person you were meant to be.

      Thank you

      I have toyed with the idea and managed to do it for a certain period of time but always seem to slip back into it. That can be because it’s a bad day, but also because it’s a good day and feel like going out (don’t drink alone except for non alcohol beer)

      I have also recently in this year switched to non alcoholic beer which gets me through social situations and means I can enjoy the feeling/ingestion part of a drink.

      Slightly different to your situation in that I never drank to lose control and I could always stop after just a few drinks. It’s only social situations where everyone is going drink for drink that I tend to overdo it.
