In brief: Depends on amount at

Taking 7gm of Acetaminophen in one dose will cause liver failure.
The current fda max allowed is 4gm per day. This is lowered by the american pain society to 2-2.5 gm per day. So add up the amount in every tab and multiply by the number of pills used per day to get the daily amount.
