How long does aspirin and tylenol (acetaminophen) stay in ur system? For example usually it says take every 6 hours so does that mean after that it's gone within?

Depends on dose: A one-time dose is normally gone within that time frame. However, regular use of medications create a "steady state" baseline which takes longer to be metabolized. How long depends on your metabolism. For example, kidney or liver disease cause drugs to not be cleared as effectively, and the medication can build up in your system.

I took 9 grams of aspirin and 10 grams of tylenol (acetaminophen). Home remedies to survive? I'm 5'1, and about 110-115 pounds. It's been in my system 28-30 hours.

I took 9 grams of aspirin and 10 grams of tylenol (acetaminophen). Home remedies to survive? I'm 5'1, and about 110-115 pounds. It's been in my system 28-30 hours.

Please go to ER: It sounds like you tried to kill yourself; I am happy to hear you have changed your mind. If you really want to survive & not have permanent kidney & liver damage then please go to the er asap!-this is beyond the scope of home remedies.That Aspirin dose is not lethal but the tylenol (acetaminophen) dose is potentially fatal; dying from acute liver failure is not a good way to go-but it's not too late.
