Last year I suffered a major toxicity to Tylenol and cannot take that drug. Last week I was prescribed augmentin 825. After six days on it, I am having so many symptoms that are similar to Tylenol toxicity. Are there any-active or nonmedicinal-ingredients common to both drugs?

Hi Curious! If you are having the same symptoms as you did with the Tylenol, you really need to call your doctor right away.

P.s. Augmentin is used to treat bacterial infections and I couldn't find that it contains Tylenol. Are you taking it with food? I would still call the doctor.

@Curious,

According to the US National Library of Medicine, liver toxicity (although infrequent), can occur in individuals taking Augmentin.

Ref: ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/9380177

Because the Acetaminophen in Tylenol also exhibits liver toxicity, it sounds like you may just need to talk with your doctor about prescribing other types of medicine that are considered to be more liver friendly.

In my own experience, I find that the majority of "non-toxic" remedies tend to revolve around natural remedies as opposed to prescription meds. However, it would still be best to sit down with your doctor and go over what's safe and what's not. He/she may recommend supplementing with Milk Thistle to help heal any further damage done to your liver.

Do you also drink alcohol or have any pre-exisitng underlying conditions that could've catalyzed the onset of such a reaction to begin with?
