Hangover: The best thing for a hangover is plenty of hydration, rest, & time -- also avoiding getting that drunk in the first place. Tylenol (acetaminophen) could add to liver injury/inflammation that you created by excessive alcohol; advil (ibuprofen) would be safer in this respect but could aggravate alcohol-induced gastritis if it's there.

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

See below: The max daily you should take is 4000mg. Sounds like you got 5000mg. I doubt that is going to cause a problem, but I certainly wouldn't take any more tylenol for a few days, if not a week. 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
