You should be taking it for as short as possible for whichever condition you’re treating. If it’s not working, something more effec ...Read more

I would try and avoid taking up to 3000mg of tylenol on a regular basis regardless of what source. While 3000mg/24 is an accepted dosing amount. The potential for cumulative toxicity is still significant especially if you take it regularly. Also, be very cautious if you have liver problems, consume alcohol or take other medications metabolized in the liver.
Hope that helps. ...Read more

It is very hard on your liver. To be certain, you would need to have a tylenol level drawn. You could call poison control and ask their opinion as well. ...Read more
