The maximum dose is 4 g (4000 mg); this would be equivalent to 8 extra strength tablets.

Although long term use at this dose is common in the UK, it can cause serious liver damage over decades of use.

It should be noted this is the advised maximum. Lethal doses are considered to be between 6000 mg and 10000 mg depending on one's own liver conditions. If you drink, I would be very cautious with Tylenol and only take when necessary because of the damage the two can cause together.

An alternative for those with impaired liver function (alcohol, liver disease, etc.) would be Advil (ibuprofen), or Aspirin (ASA). They have their own cautions, such as ASA is hard on the stomach, but it would be a definite consideration for those who cannot afford being hard on their livers with Acetaminophen.

How many Tylenol 500 can you take?

Tylenol contains acetaminophen. The maximum daily dose of acetaminophen must not exceed 4000 mg ('daily' means 24 hours). It is not recommended to take more than 1000 mg of acetaminophen at a time. The interval between 1000 mg doses should be about 6 hours. 500 mg doses can be taken more frequently, e.g. every four hours. Each Tylenol 500 gelcap, etc, contains 500 mg of pure acetaminophen. So, the daily maximum is 8 doses of Tylenol 500, not more than two doses at a time. The less, the better, as acetaminophen is not good for the liver.
