One of the interesting things that came out of my conversation yesterday with the optometrist was that apparently I should not be taking Tylenol as often as I have been because it’s bad for my liver. Hmm… I hadn’t heard that. Ofcourse, these things seem to change around all the time, but when I mentioned it to the guys at work, it seemed as though I was the only one who didn’t know that.
Tylenol is acetaminophen. I wasn’t aware of that. I thought that Aspirin was acetaminophen. (NOTE: I published that wrong too. It’s acetylsalicylic acid) I figured Tylenol was it’s own magical creation. Apparently I should be taking ibuprophen, which for me would mean Advil. That’s ok, I like Advil. They’re candy coated! (Ofcourse, so were the last couple of bottles of Tylenol that I bought)
The main thing is that the glasses prescription that I now have for reading (yet to be filled) should help with the headaches. Although, I woke up this morning with a bit of one, and obviously I hadn’t been doing any reading through the night, so I don’t know what’s up with that.
But I’ll give it a try.
