You are giving very dangerous and incorrect information (Hope you are not a salesperson for J & J and Tylenol). Tylenol, known as paracetamol in most of the world, and as acetaminophen in the USA, is indeed, less damaging to the stomach than NSAIDS. However, it can be very dangerous to the liver, particularly in combination with alcohol. And when taken in a overdose, unlike aspirin, is almost always fatal. More children now die from accidental Tylenol poisoning,by far, than from aspirin overdose. So folks, please keep those bottles of Tylenol away from your children and grandchildren.

Yes, Tylenol OD will likely cause your Liver I believe to fail.. Yes, your advice to keep it away from children is absolutely spot on..

I would not recommend having grape flavored childrens tylenol anywhere where kids could get to it.

However, I am not aware of anything other than accidental or intentional overdoses where Tylenol causing problems.
