Shaw, absolutely, too much Tylenol and any of those with acetomenophen (I know I spelled that wrong) will or can cause liver problems, usually it is temporary unless the person continues taking the medication and once taken off of the medication your enzymes should return to normal.. I am thinking the cut off is 3,000mg a day, do not quote me on this either, I could be wrong. You can go to Drugs.com and verify the exact daily amount that is safe to take.
Many years ago my daughter was undergoing extensive dental work and she could not take the pain medications and work so she was taking Tylenol and I believe Aleve, she was taking a lot and her liver enzymes went sky high, After being off of the stuff for a while they returned to normal.
I know you have had nothing but grief trying to get pain medication there in Florida. It must be worse in certain areas of Florida because we have members here that live in Florida and they have not experienced any of the problems you have ran into. That is why I wonder if certain areas are being targeted more.
Short of moving out of Florida, this has shaped up to being what you will be dealing with as long as you are needing pain medication and living where you are. Its a shame that you cannot move some where else. Is seeing another PM dr in a different state out of question? I have a friend that has to do this because her current dr does not prescribe a particular drug. She gets the medication filled in that state and has no problem with anyone including her ins.
I hear ya on getting so mad & disgusted. I can assure you getting a lawyer is not the answer, that would be throwing good money after bad. A lawyer cannot make a dr rx something he is not willing to rx.
