Concussion Treatment

My teenager recently suffered a mild concussion as a result of falling at school.  The doctor we saw afterwards recommended rest, extra-strength Tylenol, and limited water intake.  Given that everything I can find about Tylenol suggests it is a dangerous drug, causing liver damage even when taken as directed, I am not excited about using acetaminophen rather than plain aspirin.  With regard to water intake, everything I can find suggests that post-concussion treatment include drinking plenty of water rather than limiting it.  Should I get a second opinion?

Hi!
Honestly speaking there is no treatment for concussion per se. It is a time for recovery. Symptoms like pain, nausea and dizziness are managed by drugs. A healthy well balanced diet, water and fluids in right quantity, and rest help in quicker recovery. Child can play without straining himself under the watchful eye of an adult. Do discuss this with your doctor. Take care!
