Acetaminophen and Alcohol Don't Mix

The American Public Health Association has studied the dangers or mixing over the counter acetaminophen and consumption of alcohol.  Researchers noted that a therapeutic amount of acetaminophen alone, or light to moderate alcohol consumption alone do not pose risk.  However, when taken in combination with one another, results showed a 123% increase in risk of kidney dysfunction.
