Brief Answer:
less than the total amount allowed for the day

Detailed Answer:
HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

Dolo 650 and crocin 650 both contain acetaminophen at 650 mg strength

The maximum total daily dose of acetaminophen is 4000 mg according to the FDA.

This is not taken at once but divided throughout a 24 hour period.

He would have used a total of 1300 mg (the two 650 mg doses), though this is higher what it is normally used at one time (used for one dose), it is lower than the TOTAL amount that is allowed for a 24 hour period

This means that he should be fine, but should not take any more for at least 4 to 6 hours.

I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questions

Last night I took 8-10 Dolo 650 pills after I consumed a lot of alcohol. I went to the ER but because I don t have insurance, I just sat in the ER in fear of what to do. I vomited 2times in the washroom. After about 1-2 hrs of just sitting in ER, I went home. I didn t talk to a DR. I seem fine today except for feeling nauseous. Are there after effects I should be aware of?

I am Rajeswari. 28 yrs. I have been suffering from Migrane since 10 years. They are some times accompanied by visual blur-ness. I consulted a eye specialist and my vision is 6/6 in both eyes. He said that if I could avoid the triggers than can keep them at bay for a max time. But I am not able to do so. I used to take Xibnobid, but recently even after 2 xenobids the pain does not go away. One other doctor suggested Naxdom 500 Mg, that too was of no help. Kindly suggest better treatment
