    X-Factor Pain & Tylenol


    I'm doing a cycle of X-Factor and I have some pain from a previous injury popping up. I'm usually very tolerant of pain, but this is keeping me from sleeping well. Can I take some tylenol since it's not an nsaid? I don't want to hinder my gains.

    Never take acetaminophen with any anabolic supp. or any supp that puts strain on the liver, at least not consistently. Many people don't know that tylenol(acetaminophen) is very liver toxic, and can put added stress on the liver. I'm not up on x-factor, so if you can tell me a little about it I might e able to answer the question.

    I recommend that you discontinue use. I have been unable to workout for about two weeks because my joints are so messed up.

    It will hinder your gains, whether on x-factor or not...

    Well the pain turned out to be a temporary thing I think...stretching really helped. I did research Tylenol more, and it does not significantly impact Cox 1&2 pathways (which x-factor uses for muscle growth, etc), but instead uses cox-3, which is only present in the brain and spinal column. Techincally, the tylenol should have a very low impact, if anything at all. Just FYI.

    hmm you know, that does make me wonder now. I would think that its temperature lowering properties as well would reduce anabolism, but its worth some research

    This is correct. Tylenol does not have much of an anti-inflammatory response as compared to NSAIDS. If you are having unbearable pain on X-Factor I would say it is safe to use tylenol. It will not do much however if you are experiencing any sort of inflammation. Also the liver toxicity is WAY overstated with acetaminophen and at 500-1000mg used as needed you shouldn't have any issues with your liver (assuming that it is healthy as is).
