Paracetamol/acetaminophen can cause liver damage and other dangerous effects at doses much less than fatal. Death from acetaminophen is very slow and painful. Above 2 grams (2000mg) a day for more than a few days can damage your liver. More than 5 grams at any one time can damage your liver. More than 10 grams in a day will almost certainly damage your liver. The minimum dose to kill a 175 pound (80 kilogram) adult is probably 80 grams. In all likelihood, you might surivive 200 grams. But, you would probably die in a year without a new liver. To be assured death, you might need 500 grams. So stick to sodium cyanide.
