This drug usually has no side effects. If you have any unusual effects,
contact your doctor or pharmacist promptly. If your doctor has directed you
to use this medication, remember that he or she has judged that the benefit to
you is greater than the risk of side effects. Many people using this
medication do not have serious side effects. A very serious allergic reaction

For the average healthy adult, the generally recommended maximum daily
dose is no more than 4,000 milligrams (mg) from all sources. But in some
people, doses close to the 4,000 mg daily limit for adults could still be toxic
to the liver. It’s safest to take only what you need, and do not exceed 3,000
mg a day whenever possible, especially if you use acetaminophen often.
