Apap misuse

I have been ingesting Percocet 5/325mg taking about 1k apap every 5 hours for the past few weeks. Do I need to worry about permanent liver damage?  I am taking under 4k acetaminophen in 24 hrs but the dosing is only 3x daily so about 3200mg in ten hours since I do 975 initial then 5 hours later and then once more. Thanks in advance.

Hello and hope you are doing well.

Acetaminophen can cause liver damage. For the average healthy adult, the recommended maximum dose of acetaminophen over a 24 hour period is four grams (4000 mg).  A person who drinks more than two alcoholic beverages per day, however, should not take more than two grams of acetaminophen over 24 hour.

Also, a single dose of 7 to 10 grams of acetaminophen can cause liver injury in the average healthy adult.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
