Study: Mixing alcohol and pain relievers increase kidney problems by 123 percent
We’ve all heard that mixing drugs and alcohol is bad for your health and new research shows mixing acetaminophen with alcohol can cause major health problems.
Researchers say it is important to understand the health risk.
Even if you only drink a small amount of alcohol and take acetaminophen, you could damage your kidneys.
According to the Mayo Clinic, alcohol use and frequent use of certain pain killers can lead to kidney damage and possibly kidney failure.
After gathering information from more than 10,000 patients, researchers found kidney problems increased by 123 percent when alcohol and the medication were combined.
