I am a Canadian resident in Costa Rica since 1984. I have a lot of med. problems. No thyroid (papillary carsinoma), ACFA patient, high blood pressure, sick sinus of the heart syndrome, pacemaker, 2 heart valves need replacement, abdominal hernia, needs surgery. foot bunions and distorted feet waiting surgery many years, shortness of breath, electrical pain from osteo arthritis in all joints, and pelvis, impinchment of pelvis, worn out bone surfaces at joints, using a lot of meds for above conditions. Using acetaminophen with codeine, 4 tablets in 24 hours, to cover the pain. Less won't work. Have treatment for retention of water, anticoagulation (warfarin), blood pressure, arrhythmea, and thyroid (eutiroxina). Will the pain medicine cause lesions to kidneys and liver?

Acetaminophen can definitely cause liver and kidney problems if taken at doses over the recommended amount, taking it with alcohol, or taking it for long periods of time. WILL it cause damage to these organs will depend upon your particular biochemistry, however, acetaminophen is definitely known to cause damage to these organs.

Acetaminophen also has other side effects that can potentially make your other conditions worse. Please see my page on acetaminophen side effects.
