Is taking 6 Tylenol 3's a day bad for you?

The maximum dose of acetaminophen for adults is 1000mg at a time, and 4000mg per day. Tylenol 3 contains 300mg of acetaminophen. That makes up to 13 Tylenol 3's during the day. But Tylenol 3 contains 30mg of codeine, and they do not recommend to take more than 240mg of codeine daily. That makes 8 Tylenol 3's all in all at maximum. If you need more acetaminophen, you may try to replace Tylenol 3 with Tylenol 2 or Tylenol 1 (15mg and 8mg of codeine respectively).But, of course, the less you use the better.

How much is 200 grams of codeine?

A lot! Consider this: one Tylenol 3 with codeine contains only three milligrams of the drug. 3 milligrams is only 3/200,000 of 200 grams. I am a medical doctor but also take codeine for my Fibromyalgia. Tylenol 3 (generic is Acetaminophen with Codeine) contains 30mg (thirty milligrams) of codeine. 1000mg (milligrams) = 1 gram. which means 200 grams would be equal to taking 6,667 pills of Tylenol 3. This would kill any human no matter what the persons tolerance is.
