There is a lot of research coming out these days on what we call "pain relievers" and whether or not they cause serious damage.

As an example here is just one study: http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2010/08/03/tylenol-pm-causes-brain-damage.aspx

Many persons assume that just because you can buy chemiclas "over the counter" that they are safe.  I've been called weird, but I find natural products that do the same things as the chemcial products.  They may cost more, but I prefer to think I am am doing good things for my long term health.

There is always a recommended maximum, which is best set by your personal physician and possibly reaffirmed by your pharmacist. However, just because its 'recommended' does not make it safe.
