believe who you want, but the effects of iburofen on your liver are minimal
And I stand by my statements. My sister in-law has a PhD from Northwestern in Chiropractics and Medicine, Her Husband has a Masters in Eastern Medicine and Acupuncture. Both were required to take extensive courses involving drugs and the effects on the body. Both of them have told me what I posted earlier, and I have many links that I can share from the FDA, NIH and even the manufactures website (Merck) that states the dangers of overuse and it's effects on the liver and kidney. They all mention combining the topic drugs with alcohol is extremely dangerous. Go do a search on the side effects of NSAID's which is what Tylenol and IB are considered to be. All information will tell you how it is safe in low doses, not to have prolonged use and never take with alcohol. Here is something else to consider about IB, overuse of Ibuprofen can increase the blood levels of lithium by reducing the excretion of lithium by the kidneys. Increased levels of lithium may lead to lithium toxicity and can cause kidney failure.
Honestly I'm shocked that someone in the medical industry dealing with drugs would say that was okay, but I've seen crazier things.
Good luck, hope no ill effects bestow your organs.
