Taking too much Acenol may cause serious (possibly fatal) liver disease. Adults should not take more than 4000 milligrams (4 grams) of Acenol a day. People with liver problems and children should take less Acenol. Ask your doctor or pharmacist how much Acenol is safe to take.

Do not use with any other drug containing Acenol without asking your doctor or pharmacist first. Acenol is in many nonprescription and prescription medications (such as pain/fever drugs or cough-and-cold products). Check the labels on all your medicines to see if they contain Acenol, and ask your pharmacist if you are unsure.

Get medical help right away if you take too much Acenol (overdose), even if you feel well. Overdose symptoms may include nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, sweating, stomach/abdominal pain, extreme tiredness, yellowing eyes/skin, and dark urine.

Q: How long can I take Tylenol for before it becomes dangerous? I have been using it for shoulder pain for 6 months. I take 2 in the morning and 2 before bedtime.

A: Tylenol (Acenol) is an over-the-counter pain reliever. Tylenol inhibits substances called prostaglandins which reduces fever and pain. Tylenol is indicated for moderate pain. However, Tylenol does not work on inflammation. Tylenol can be taken with or without food. Common side effects associated with Tylenol include stomach upset, nausea, and loss of appetite. Current recommendations advise that it is important not to take more than the maximum dosage of 4000 mg per day or 1000 mg per single dose. However, McNeil, the manufacturer of brand-name Tylenol, has recently announced they are lowering the maximum daily dose of their product to 3000 mg per day. This change will be reflected in the new packaging for brand-name Tylenol beginning in Fall 2011. Doses exceeding this amount could cause potential adverse effects on the liver. Chronic alcoholics should inform the doctor if they exceed more than 3 drinks per day, especially if 2 g of Tylenol are taken in a day. According to prescribing information, there are no guidelines regarding how long Tylenol can be taken. It is important to never exceed the recommended amount and consult with the doctor if the pain is not adequately controlled. Always inform your doctor about all over-the-counter products you may take including vitamins, herbals and supplements. Some over-the-counter products may interact with other medications. Also, tell your pharmacist about all the prescription medication and over-the-counter products you take so the pharmacist can accurately check the medications for drug interactions. For more information on Tylenol, or other medications, consult with your doctor or pharmacist. Kimberly Hotz, PharmD
