What is the maximum daily dosage for Midol PMS?

Do not take more than eight Midol PMS capsules in a 24 hour period. Each Midol PMS tablet contains 500 milligrams (mg) of acetaminophen. The recommended daily adult dose for acetaminophen is four grams (4000 mg), or 1000 mg in a single dose. If you are taking other medications that contain acetaminophen, make sure you know the amount of acetaminophen they contain, so you stay within recommended levels and avoid liver damage.

Never take more than two grams (2000 mg) of Midol PMS per day if you consume alcohol. Drinking alcohol while taking acetaminophen can increase your risk of liver damage.
