Ask Your Health Question and Get an Answer ASAP
Thanks for your fast response. The pain has been coming and going for approximately 2 months. It seems to be ok when I get up and wethere I eat anything or not it gets worse throughout the day.
All alt and ast tests were in range. No other high values on cbc.
Lately it seems to be more persistent.
Thanks again for the fast response! It helps my mind for sure, due to the fact that I have taken alot of tylenol over the last several years. Sometimes over suggested amounts. Would the over use of tylenol contribute to the gastritis?
Dear XXXXX,I am happy to answer your follow up question.
The recommended dose of acetaminophen(tylenol)of regular-strength (325mg)is two tablets every four to six hours as needed,not to exceed 12 tablets in24 hours.Although tylenol does not cause gastritis when taken in recommeneded dosage & for short duration.But when taken for years or taken in overdosage this can cause gastritis & other related symptoms.
So I advice you to stop taking tylenol further & this will help you greatly in pain relief.
