Is the Liver failure warning on the backside packaging of Dayquil/Nyquil accurate?

It says that one should not consume more than three alcoholic beverages while taking Nyquil . Otherwise liver failure may occur.

However I like to drink beer excessively in the evening hours.

    Yes: Acetaminophen is turned into a toxin in the liver and made harmless again right away if the liver is functioning properly and there is not too much to process. (Which is why you're not supposed to have more than 3000 mg per day.)

    Chronic alcohol use depresses the liver's ability to do that.

    If it wasn't accurate, then the warning would not be on the box in the first place. Google "WHAT ARE THE EFFECTS OF TAKING DAYQUIL/NYQUIL WITH ALCOHOL" and you will see what happens to a person, who mixes any drugs with Alcohol. You read the information provided and decide for yourself.

    Go online and see how common this is. Nyquil has Tylenol, I believe, and Tylenol and Alcohol are definitely toxic together in large amounts.

    They provide the advice for their own protection as well as yours.

    If you ignore it and there is a problem they are not to blame.

    3 beers and a dose of Nyquil should put you to sleep quite nicely.
