4 doctors agree

In brief: It is OK

The recommended maximum daily dose containing Acetaminophen is 4gr or 6 tablets.
However, for the better pain management effect it is good to spread the opioid medication trough out the day. Rec.: see prescribing physician for medication adjustment. Do not self medicate.

Check underlying cause of pain, and have it treated, as you may be already tolerant to the doses you're taking, needing higher doses to get the same pain relief.
