From the tylenol (acetaminophen): But the question is why you need the tylenol (acetaminophen) or what else is going on with you before anyone can tell you that you will be fine. Do not overdose on tylenol (acetaminophen). It could cause problems with the liver. ...Read more

What to do if i just took 3 or 4 tylenol (acetaminophen) 500 mg at once, is it bad?

What to do if i just took 3 or 4 tylenol (acetaminophen) 500 mg at once, is it bad?

No benefit: Your liver will be able to handle this without a problem. But something you don't want to do again as there is no benefit. Safe doses are up to 7, 000 mg/day, taken down to 3, 000 mg/day to 4, 000/day for population safety reasons. You just won't get any more added benefit from 2 grams of tylenol (acetaminophen) at a time than say from 1 gram. ...Read more

Can I overdose if I take 5 acetaminophen (500)mg and 5 advil) 200)mg three times a day for a week?

Overdose: Actually 5-500 mg tablets of acetaminophen 3 times a day is 7500 mg total per day and 5-200 mg advil tablets three times a day are 3000 mg of ibuprofen per day. The maximum safe dose per day of acetaminophen is 3000 mg per day. and advil is 1200 to 1800 per day. Some doctors will give lower doses of acetaminophen with ibuprofen but this is much too much and serious side effects can occur. ...Read more

Been taking xtea stregnth tylenol (acetaminophen) 500 mg 3-4 times a day 2pill each dose for 3 days is this safe i have high blood pressure?

At the MAX!: Hi. My advice would be to never exceed 4 grams of acetaminophen/24 hours, and generally not more than 3 grams. It's not the high blood pressure that worries me, it's the liver toxicity of acetaminophen. ...Read more

Had open inguinal surgery with ethicon prolene mesh, on first day got fever which peaked 101f but came to 99 but taking panadol (acetaminophen) 500 mg x3, is this ok?

Fever: The fever is concerning, ok to use tylenol (acetaminophen). Your team will monitor you for infection/seroma/hematoma. Continue to take your temperature daily and record it for your doc/surgeon. Call your surgeon if your fever recurs (above 102). Make sure you go to your post operative appointment and bring your temperature recordings. The mesh is standard for this operation. ...Read more
