If you are taking paracetamol (more commonly known as acetaminophen), you should not drink alcohol excessively, as it may react with the drug to damage your liver. Also, avoid cold and allergy medicines that contain paracetamol or acetaminophen, since this may cause an overdose. In addition, certain medicines, such as blood thinners and seizure medications, might cause adverse reactions when taken with paracetamol. Your doctor may suggest that you not breastfeed while taking paracetamol.
