G6 Sensors and Acetaminophen

Anyone have any experience with G6 sensors and Acetaminophen? The G6s aren’t supposed to be affected by acetaminophen, but I’m wondering if anyone has noticed any changes in their sensors or the BG values from the sensors when using it.
Thanks.

My son has taken acetaminophen on a couple of occasions with the G6 and it didn’t affect things the way the G5 did. I can’t say it had no effect, but it didn’t completely screw things up. I do think that there was talk at one time that there was a limit to the sensors ability to exclude acetaminophen so i do think some experimentation is in order. Interferents like Acetaminophen will add to the electrical current in the system, so you will read artificially high. You can cross check with strips to understand the effect.
