FDA Issues Warning On Drugs Containing Acetaminophen

The Food and Drug Administration is recommending that health professionals stop prescribing combination drugs that contain more than 325 milligrams of acetaminophen per tablet, capsule, or other dosage unit, citing the risk of possible liver damage.

The agency said in a statement Tuesday that limiting the amount of acetaminophen per dosage unit will reduce the risk of severe liver damage from an inadvertent acetaminophen overdose, which can lead to liver failure, liver transplant, and death.

With all they know about acetaminophen it's still legal, but you better not get caught with some pot.
