    Hey it's my friends birthday tonight and we are going clubbing but I've got bad menstural cramps which I'm talking paracetamol for. Is it a bad idea to mix the two or will it not hurt for just one night?

    Thanks

    I read the leaflet inside it is strongly against mixing the two together you can if you want but it could end very badly and you will probably very unwell or worse beter safe than sorry.

    You don't need to drink much to get drunk if you mix them. To be honest you shouldn't mix them

    Both alcohol and paracetamol are toxic to the liver. Combining them is double trouble. Don't underestimate how damaging paracetamol is for the liver. People can easily damage their liver severely or even die from a single overdose.

    An extract from Wikipedia:

    Paracetamol toxicity is the foremost cause of acute liver failure in the Western world, and accounts for most drug overdoses in the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand.[47][48][49][50] According to the FDA, in the United States there were "56,000 emergency room visits, 26,000 hospitalizations, and 458 deaths per year related to paracetamol-associated overdoses during the 1990s. Within these estimates, unintentional paracetamol overdose accounted for nearly 25 percent of the emergency department visits, 10 percent of the hospitalizations, and 25 percent of the deaths."[51]

    Paracetamol is metabolised by the liver and is hepatotoxic; side effects are multiplied when combined with alcoholic drinks, and are very likely in chronic alcoholics or patients with liver damage.[52][53]
