    Default The Most Common Side Effects I See From OTC Meds—and How to Avoid Them

    It’s disaster time and you have a problem. Maybe pain from an injury or headache or misery from indigestion or a cold. You delve into your stash of over-the-counter medications you’ve saved for times just like this and take one you’ve taken many times before. Two hours later, you have a rash or stomach pain or some other odd new problem. Is it related to the medicine? I mean, you’ve taken it so many times in the past.
    Remember this: Any medication, herb, supplement, oil, or food that can work on your body in a positive way has the potential to affect it in a negative way as well.
    No matter how many times you’ve taken something in the past, it can give you just about any side effect you can think of at any given time, and that includes an allergic reaction.

    This was informative. I was not aware of Tylenol's potential for liver damage. Also, regarding high blood pressure, be careful with over-the-counter cold medicines, as some may increase blood pressure.

    Tylenol or other acetaminophen always should be taken along with some N-Acetyl Cysteine for at least a partial effort at liver protection.
