Welcome to our family it is nice to meet you. I do wish it was under different circumstances. There have been changes made to the amount of Tylenol that is safe to take during a 24 hour period.
You can read more about this change at, http://www.tylenol.com/safety-dosing/usage/dosage-for-adults
The maximum daily dose for Extra Strength TYLENOL (acetaminophen) products has changed from 8 pills per day (4,000 mg) to 6 pills per day (3,000 mg). The dosing has also changed from 2 pills every 4 – 6 hours to 2 pills every 6 hours.
The best thing is to talk to your doctor about what he feels is a safe alternative for you to use.
Do you have a pain management doctor or are you seeing a primary care provider/family doctor?
If you are seeing a primary care/family doctor. You could ask for a referral to a pain management clinic or pain management provider.
If you look at the top of the page you will see a tab labeled “Education”. Under that tab is topics labeled “Pain 101.
There are resources that you can read on talking to your provider and other great information.
I would like to invite you to our hosted live chats on Monday-Wednesday-Friday at 11am Eastern Time. It is a great group of people who understand the journey of pain. We support each other and share our daily struggles with pain. We also laugh — laughter is a great distraction.
We would be honored for you to join us. It is a small group and you are never pressured to share more than what you feel comfortable sharing.
You will find the Chat room located at the top of the page under the “Community” tab.
