All OTC pain relievers have their risks. Tylenol is NOT recommended if you have problems with your liver and is definitely not good to mix with alcohol. It's always best to call your doctor if you need to be on a long term pain reliever. Most of them are okay on a short term and once in a while basis however you need to exercise caution long term. That goes for both NSAIDs and Tylenol. I'm on Naproxen on a daily regular basis and my doc needs to check my blood for toxicity risk to my liver and kidneys regularly for that and my other meds.
