REG.

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for posting Reg,

People who have active hepatitis C should be careful about ingesting things that might cause liver toxicity- including alcohol and acetaminophen.

Taken for a short period and within the dosing instructions, a single dose of acetaminophen should be ok to take.

Be well, BY

Very worried about meds taking time
