In brief: 4gm
If you are otherwise healthy and don't have any pre-existing liver disease, it is recommended that no more than 4gm of Acetaminophen be consumed over any 24 hour time period.

In brief: 2,000 mgs a day
No more than this amount per 24 hrs seems to be safe.
However, if you are taking multiple meds that are cleared by the liver, especially alcohol, even 2, 000 mgs a day may be potentially toxic.
