hydro is addictive/this u know//tylenol is not....but the tylenol portion of the pills u were taking were toxic to ur liver...and i am not super sure of ur dose cos i have early onset alzheimers!  LOL..no really...4000 mgs of tylenol is the max a person should use daily before it can be toxic to ur liver..using tylenol right now is probably fine as long as u have done no liver damage and u r taking reasonable amts of tylenol each day....a better choice to feed ur body right now would be the aminos in the thomas recipe..keep posting

Not a stupid question and no it is not addictive, only the hydro. Just don't take more than instructed on the bottle so you don't damage your liver. Good luck, Corey
