Too much Tylenol (acetaminophen): You have taken 80 x 80mg = 6400mg and 102 * 500mg = 51000mg for a total of 57400mg of Tylenol (acetaminophen) over a period of 14 days. This means you are averaging 4100mg per day of Tylenol (acetaminophen). If you have a liver condition (such as hepatitis or cirrhosis), are drinking a lot of alcohol, or are taking this dosage over long period, permanent damage can occur.
