Hi there and thanks for your concern! May I ask what landed you in the hospital with such high Tylenol levels? Unfortunately I can not just up and go to the er. I have a terrible cold, and have a two year old with one as well. Especially when I am not even sure my liver is bothering me, and on top of all this, I've actually done nothing to indicate Tylenol overdose. I take Tylenol daily, well I actually Today is day two of no Tylenol, but I don't come close to the 4,000 limit, or 3,000 for chronic users. I'm just trying to figure out how to tell if your liver hurts, or maybe signs that the daily Tylenol was just too much. Maybe of you tell me your story, it could be helpful. Thanks so much!
