Millions of Americans use over-the-counter (OTC) pain medications for relief of minor aches and pains. Acetaminophen is one of the main types of OTC medications and can be found in hundreds of medications.

While acetaminophen may be easy to access, it still carries major health risks. If taken incorrectly, acetaminophen can result in severe liver damage.

The Alliance has a collection of “pocket films” that offers tips on how to safely use, store, and dispose of OTC pain medications. You can find the full listing of videos here. The videos are also available in Spanish.

Check out the video below to learn more about taking acetaminophen safely:
