Typically, it is recommended to take no more than 4000 mg or 4 grams of Tylenol per day for adults. For children, it is dosed according to weight. This amount can vary depending on other conditions that you may have.

Acetaminophen is a component of hundreds of over-the-counter and prescription medications used worldwide. It is included in prescription medications often used for pain (i.e. Vicodin) as well at over the counter medications used for pain, cough and colds.
