Liver failure can result from an unintentional overdosage of what over-the-counter pain reliever?

A acetaminophen

Acetaminophen can result in liver failure when taken at higher than recommended doses or used in combination with alcohol. Patients should take no more than 4,000 mg per day; recommended doses may be lower for some patient groups (e.g., older adults, patients with pre-existing liver problems). Aspirin, ibuprofen, and naproxen are more likely to cause kidney damage than liver damage.
