Is it safe to take 3acetaminophen and codeine plus aspirin?

Is it safe to take 3acetaminophen and codeine plus aspirin?

2 cautions: One must not exceed 4, 000 mg of tylenol (acetaminophen) in 24 hours. You don't mention what strength of medication you're taking or how often you take it, so I can't comment on the "3".

("analgesic nephropathy"). ...Read more
