Whatever happened to Acetaminophen?

The last time I treated I remember the chart that has my shot dates suggested I take two 500 mg Tylenol around the time I administer the shot. There used to be some kind of ongoing "pro/con" discussion here on the forum related to this. I notice this time around I rarely ever see Acetaminophen mentioned. Do those of you who are treating take it? What, if anything has your clinician said about it? I'm actually not even sure if it is part of the SOC (then or now). I haven't kept up with all the nuances of treatment over the years♫

My GI doc said I could take up to 1000mg of Acetaminophen a day (although I think most say up to 2000mg a day ... mine is conservative). I usually don't take more than 1000mg in a day and often not that much. My GI doc said not to take the NSAIDS although other people on the forum do.

Thanks for the link. I remember the response of first GI doc I saw when I asked about high doses of acetaminophen: "It's OK. You liver is damaged already."

Surely, your doctor had to be joking.  "Your liver is damaged.  Forget about it and enjoy your excessive amounts of Tylenol."   Classic!

He was as serious as a heart attack. That was nine years ago at a state run hospital. Not that there is anything wrong with places like that. I am just saying :)
