what is the highest safe amount of acetaminophen and ibuprofen a person can take?

Dr. Christopher Hajnik

Follow directions : Usually 4000 mg per day of Acetaminophen and 1600 mg per day of Ibuprofen are safe. All medications have side effects and risks so please follow the directions on the bottle carefully. Contact your primary physician about the safety of these products if you have liver, kidney, or stomach ailments.
