The safe combo: Tylenol (acetaminophen) 250mg+aspirin250mg+caffeine 65mg. Adults should not take more than 4000mg/day tylenol (acetaminophen). For Aspirin is the same amount, 4000mg/day max dose. Consuming 300 mg of caffeine per day is safe. The only caution is not to exceed 15 tablets per month, avoiding medication overuse headache. If you are concerned or experiencing serious side effects contact your pcp.

Many liver experts now suggest limiting the total Tylenol intake to 3000mg a day when use is going to be long term.

Excedrin: The more you take, the worse it gets. See a Neurologist soon.
