Tylenol 650 Mg

One of the most familiar medications used to relieve pain and reduce fever is Tylenol® (acetaminophen). It comes in many different forms, such as caplets, tablets, and a liquid, and several strengths, ranging from 325 mg to 650 mg.
 
Dosing guidelines for this medicine vary, depending on factors such as age and the particular product used. For example, when using extended-release (650 mg) Tylenol, the recommended amount is two tablets (or gel tabs) every eight hours, not to exceed six tablets in 24 hours.
 
Even though it is a nonprescription medication, it is very important that you not take more than 4 grams (4000 mg) in a 24-hour period. Taking too much acetaminophen can lead to Tylenol poisoning, which is quite serious and can be fatal.
