No : 5 grams of acetaminophen once will not cause liver damage unless you are very small, use heavy amounts of it daily, are a heavy alcohol drinker, or have preexisting liver damage. Hopefully this wasn't intentional, as it is hard to take that much at once. If concerned, have levels checked. Good luck!
