I'm not a Doctor either but I can say it's never a good idea to exceed the recommended dosage on anything. Some people think if you take more you get better quicker, it doesn't work that way.
I wouldn't worry too much since you feel fine, if that changes go and see a doctor.

I'm no doctor either , but here what it say on Paracetamol (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paracetamol) :
While generally safe for use at recommended doses (1,000 mg per single dose and up to 4,000 mg per day for adults)
If you are unsure , you can slow down and keep some time before you take the next medication .
Hope you get better :bunny:

I don't want to worry you in any way but if you are at all unsure, please speak to a doctor. It's very easy to overdose on Paracetamol because the required dosage is relatively low. Personally, I think you are ok but I am not a doctor and neither is anyone else on here. If you're worried, don't mess about, get some proper advice.

Speak to a doctor about health worries; no-one here can help you with that.
Get well soon!
