Tylenol   

"Manufactured by Johnson & Johnson subsidiary McNeil Laboratories, the drug is also available in generic. It is marketed as an effective painkiller that is safer than non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as aspirin or ibuprofen, which are associated with stomach discomfort or bleeding. Pharmacies compound Tylenol into more than 600 prescription and OTC medicines, and the drug generates more than $1 billion a year for McNeil.

Tylenol is not without its serious complications. It is the leading cause of acute liver failure in the United States, and the drug in some cases led to fatalities. The active ingredient in Tylenol, acetaminophen, accounts for more than 100,000 calls to poison centers, roughly 60,000 emergency-room visits and hundreds of deaths each year in the United States. In England, it is the leading cause of liver failure requiring transplants. In 2009, the FDA issued guidelines for adding overdose guidelines to packages and in 2011, the agency confirmed the link between the drug and liver damage.

In October 2013, Johnson & Johnson will add a warning to the caps of bottles of Extra Strength Tylenol warning consumers that the drug contains acetaminophen and may cause liver failure. Severe liver damage from the drug led people to file lawsuits against Johnson & Johnson and/or McNeil. On April 1, 2013, a judge consolidated several federal lawsuits in multidistrict litigation (MDL) in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania". (Drug watch, 10/16/2015)
