Question
the idiot internet only gives you maximum amount of Tylenol it never says what is safe amount  daily.will taking 1000 units daily every day harm  ,   liv er

Answer
Hi Howard,
For the average person 1000 mg Tylenol per day is safe for the liver. The maximum recommended dose is 4000 mg per day. That dose is decreased with age as liver function decreases. Also alcohol consumption and concurrent medications that can potentially affect the liver increases liver toxicity.
Thank you for using Allexpets.
