Chances are you have a bottle of extra strength Tylenol in your medicine cabinet.
A change is in store for the popular over-the-counter pills.
There's word Johnson & Johnson is about to lower the maximum recommended daily dose from eight pills a day to no more than six.
The move is in response to fears of dangerous overdoses.
The key ingredient in extra strength Tylenol is acetaminophen.
But it’s also an ingredient in more than 600 other medications you might be taking.
Acetaminophen overdose is the leading cause of liver failure in the U.S. sending 56,000 Americans to the hospital each year.
About 450 die as a direct result.
