Tylenol causes asthma?
by West Conner
Some medical scientists are saying that taking Tylenol (acetaminophen) can increase the risk of asthma. The reason is that acetaminophen lowers the body’s level of something called glutathione. Glutathione has a protective effect on the lungs and people with asthma have lower glutathione levels than healthy people. Contradicting this, the body produces glutathione much faster than acetaminophen can reduce it. Also, those who are allergic to aspirin have about a 30% chance of getting a short, asthma-like condition called bronchospasm if they take 1000mg or more of acetaminophen. I wouldn’t concern myself too much unless you are allergic to acetaminophen, then do not take more than 1000mg in one dose. There is definitely not enough proof to say whether or not acetaminophen has any role in asthma. Experts say acetaminophen is still, overall, the safest medication for mild to moderate pain.
