Is taking 1500 - 2000 mg of Paracetamol at one time dangeous?

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer,

911DOC :

Not really, but if you were to do it every four hours for a while it would be. Paracetamol is very safe within a large dose range, but if you exceed about 7g at once or take a double dose every four hours for a while you will poison your liver and die without the antidote.

Customer:

So doing this just once a week or so is OK?
