What is the maximum daily dosage for Diurex PMS?

Do not take more than eight Diurex PMS caplets in a 24 hour period. The most acetaminophen that can be safely consumed in a day is four grams (4000 mg) for adults. In a single dose, adults can take up to one gram (1000 mg) of acetaminophen. Diurex PMS contains 500 mg of acetaminophen per caplet. If you are taking other medications that contain acetaminophen, make sure you know how much they contain so that you can consume a safe amount and avoid liver damage. If you consume more than three alcoholic beverages per day, consult with your doctor before taking Diurex PMS. You should never take more than two grams (2000 mg) of Diurex PMS per day if you also consume alcohol.
