What are the symptoms of Tylenol (acetaminophen) poisoning?

An overdose of acetaminophen (Tylenol poisoning) might not produce symptoms for 24 hours or even a couple days. Common symptoms after this initial period can include: nausea, vomiting, poor appetite and pain in the abdomen. In severe overdoses, jaundice and bleeding may accompany a decrease in liver function after three or four days. After five days if recovery has not begun, liver failure can occur due to Tylenol poisoning.
