How does paracetamol interact with other medications or foods?

Certain foods and drugs should be avoided or used with caution while taking paracetamol (more commonly known as acetaminophen), because of potentially harmful reactions. In some serious cases, too much alcohol combined with paracetamol can cause liver damage. Also, be careful about taking paracetamol while taking cold or allergy medications. These medicines may already contain paracetamol (acetaminophen), and taking both may result in overdose. Other drugs, such as blood thinners and seizure medications, can interact with paracetamol.
