    Anyone who is allergic to acetaminophen should not take it. Also, acetaminophen in allergy and sinus medications is generally not recommended for children under two years of age. Certain medical conditions, such as pregnancy, liver disease, breastfeeding and phenylketonuria (PKU) should be discussed with your doctor before taking acetaminophen, as they could put you at risk for complications. If you are taking medications, such as blood thinners, other acetaminophens, seizure medications, other cold medications or phenothiazines, you should talk to your doctor about any possible interactions before taking acetaminophen.
