Side Effects of Acetaminophen – Mild Migraine Drugs
Acetaminophen is often a preferred drug for mild migraine pain because it has virtually no side effects. However, if taken in large doses, acetaminophen can cause liver damage, so caution should be taken to stay within the recommended dosage. Many prescription and over-the-counter drugs, including some cough and cold remedies, contain acetaminophen. So always check with your doctor before combining other medications with acetaminophen because of the risk of accidental overdose. There are a number of drugs that interact with acetaminophen and with NSAIDs, so you should tell your doctor about all prescription and over-the-counter medications you take if he prescribes these drugs for your migraines.
