Acetaminophen

This article was originally published in The Tan Sheet

Executive Summary

Individual who received two caplets of acetaminophen a day over two years showed a "significant drop" in white blood cell counts -- from 9,000 to 3,000 over the study period -- "especially in the neutrophils," according to a study presented at a recent meeting of the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology. Study author Badi Boulos, MD/PhD, University of Illinois- Chicago School of Public Health, recommended "an alert to consumers against continual use of such compounds for prolonged periods of time and to physicians to monitor the white blood cell counts of patients before and during treatment with acetaminophen," particularly AIDS patients.
