    The APAP (Acetaminophen) overdoes is what kills you, not the opiate in the pill.

      No, it just takes out your liver. If they didn’t put acetaminophen in so many narcotics, a lot of people would be alive.

    The United Kingdom has recently banned Acetaminophen as a compounding agent with opiates. Geat way to destroy your liver…..booze and/or Tylenol.
