Not a good idea: A large dose of acetaminophen (Tylenol) can be detrimental to your health. A daily maximum dose of tylenol is 4000 mg but acetaminophen toxicity can occur in situations where patients with alcohol intake took less than the maximum dose. Overdose on acetaminophen can cause liver failure and acute kidney injury.
