Is it dangerous to take 2 500mg acetaminophen pills?

Is it dangerous to take 2 500mg acetaminophen pills?

Maybe.: I have patients that take lortab (has 500 mg of acetominophen in each tab) 4 times a day....So a 5th tablet will be likely ok. Taking 2500 all at once is not recommended......If the pain is that bad, go see your doctor. Your liver needs to be monitored if you are taking acetominophen at this dosage. ...Read more

Took about 5 pills of acetaminophen each 500mg. And smoked two cigarettes within an hour. Is that harmful?

Took about 5 pills of acetaminophen each 500mg. And smoked two cigarettes within an hour. Is that harmful?

Possibly!: Maximum Acetaminophen per 24 hour period should not exceed 3500-4000 mg. Long term excessive use may cause irreversable liver damage. Smoking cigarettes just not a good healthy thing to do, however, I see this as a personel choice. I would consider putting the cigarettes down and exercise every time you think a out smoking, that is how I kicked the habit 34 years ago! Good luck. ...Read more

We had 3 22oz beers last night, the last one around 630 and at 8 this morning 1 took 2 500mg acetaminophen. Is this a bad thing?

We had 3 22oz beers last night, the last one around 630 and at 8 this morning 1 took 2 500mg acetaminophen. Is this a bad thing?

One 1 gram dose of acetaminophen isn't going to damage your liver, regardless of how much you had to drink the night before. But consuming the equivalent of a 6 pack of beer, especially for a female, is "binge drinking." That's "a bad thing" to do to your body. ...Read more
