From muscle pain to headaches, we take Tylenol for so many things, it's a household drug.
But now there's a new report out on the popular painkiller acetaminophen, often sold under the brand name Tylenol.
Between 2001 and 2010, more than 1,500 people died from accidental acetaminophen overdoses.
This isn't a new problem and doctors believe that the message is not getting through to people, because these are preventable deaths.
The maximum amount of acetaminophen you can take in a 24 hour period is 4,000 milligrams. Anything over 4,000 milligrams can cause liver failure.
Doctors recommend checking your medication labels for acetaminophen and keeping a running tally of how much you take in every day.
They also recommend avoiding alcohol while taking acetaminophen, and asking your pharmacist if you have any questions.
