Thank you for your question. The maximum dose for paracetamol is 4000 mg for an adult. Since you have taken more than the suggested amount, you are advised to visit the nearest hospital for observation. Look out for symptoms of overdose:

  • Diarrhea
  • increased sweating
  • loss of appetite
  • nausea or vomiting
  • stomach cramps or pain
  • swelling, pain, or tenderness in the upper abdomen or stomach area
