A 35-year-old member asked:

How much acetaminophen is too much?

Dr. Danny Proffitt

Depends?: The recommended limit on use of Acetaminophen for adults if 4 grams a day. If you have liver disease, it is much less if any at all. Drinking alcohol would preclude these doses. "tylenol" is metabolized in the liver and anything affecting the liver is to be considered seriously. Consider alternatives such as ibuprofen. If in doubt, discuss with your pcp or with your pharmacist. Be careful!

Acetaminophen: (panadol) Acetaminophen is usually well tolerated but allergic reactions may occur as with any medication.

If any breathing difficulty give epi-pen or call 911.
