Acetaminophen is primarily processed (metabolized) by the liver. In therapeutic doses, the liver is able to process the drug safely without any harmful effects. When a large dose is ingested and/or when doses exceed the recommended amount over a period of time, however, the liver may be overwhelmed and may not process the excessive amount of drug. As a result, a toxic intermediate form of the drug can build up in the liver and cause damage to liver cells.
No special preparation is needed for Acetaminophen. Inform your doctor if you are on any medications or have any underlying medical conditions or allergies before undergoing Acetaminophen. Your doctor depending on your condition will give specific instructions.
