    I'm not sure if my ache is from FM, my back, arthritis or what, but taking Tylenol with some Biofreeze or IcyHot rub on my one leg is taking the edge off. I would hate to start narcotics, as the pain is not that severe, but very annoying.

    Can we take Tylenol daily as long as we don't go over the 3000 mg limit? Is it still dangerous to our liver to take everyday? Years ago, Tylenol Arthritis was a common thing for people in pain.

    Just curious who takes it and how often~~

    Thanks!

    If it were me, I'd not take it every day. First, I think the source of the pain needs to be explored. There are other treatments and options for pain relief. If a person takes it every day, I think blood work needs to be done to ensure liver function. Even then, it may damage the liver. Physical therapy, easy Yoga and stretching, and meditation can all alleviate pain. When used together, the effect can decrease the need for pills. Good luck to you.
