the D.R. put me on plavix for the t.i.a. i had september 1st & I hurt my shoulder a couple of days ago.
my question is how many aceteminophen can i take saftly in one day with the plavix with out getting sick from to much of both medications
Richard C Senelick, MD responded:
As always, I must start with the admonition to check with your doctor, since every patient is unique. As a rule people can take acetaminophen with Plavix. Last year, new levels were set for the maximum dose and this was covered in a story on WebMD. Here is the link: . The maximum dose of acetaminophen has been lowered to 3000mg per day. Excessive doses can cause liver and kidney damage. This maximum dose may be lower for people with a variety of medical conditions, so once again, be sure to check with your doctor.

Good Luck
