No: 4 oz of children's tylenol (acetaminophen) equates to 3,840 mg for the day. As long as you didn't take any additional tylenol (acetaminophen), you should be fine. Hope this helps!

Tylenol (acetaminophen) max: Children's Tylenol usually comes in 160 mg/5mL strength. A 4 oz bottle would contain a little over 3800 mg of acetaminophen. According to recent dosing recommendations, you have slightly exceeded the maximum recommended daily dose of 3000 mg. The manufacturer provides the following for more information: Consumer Call Center at 1-877-414-7711.
