The test for acetaminophen is used to measure the level of drug in the blood to establish the diagnosis of overdose (over-the-counter medication), hence accesses the risk of liver damage. These blood levels of excessive medication of acetaminophen will decide the treatment modalities of antidote (N-acetylcysteine) to be used to minimize its toxicity since prompt diagnosis and treatment are important for a positive outcome. Usually, diagnosis of acetaminophen toxicity is usually confirmed through diagnostic tests which include levels of acetaminophen, electrolytes, kidney function test, amylase, lipase, liver function test, jaundice, ultra-sound for liver (hepatomegaly), coma (hepatic encephalopathy), and complete blood count along with coagulation factors. The adverse effects of acetaminophen are nausea, stomach pain, loss of appetite, itching, rash, headache, dark urine, and clay-colored stool.
