How do I manage my Tylenol (acetaminophen) poisoning on a daily basis?

Because Tylenol (acetaminophen) poisoning can be effectively treated by early detection, it is important that you contact a doctor or your local poison control center as soon as possible if you've taken an overdose, even if you aren't currently displaying any symptoms. If you are able to treat Tylenol poisoning within the first few hours, hospitalization can often be prevented. Do not simply stay at home or try to rest and recuperate, for if you are experiencing Tylenol poisoning, time will only worsen your condition. After a few days, liver damage or even liver failure can ensue.
