A healthy adult who weighs at least 150 pounds can safely take 4,000 milligrams (mg) of paracetamol in a single day without causing any adverse effects on the liver. However, taking this dose for more than a few days can lead to liver injury. But since you took less than this maximum dose only once it is unlikely to cause any liver damage. You should take an acid-reducing medication such as ranitidine or omeprazole to relieve the heartburn. You should also drink plenty of water.

Thank you for replying.
If there is no livery injury then this will not help you feel better and may not be required. You should not assume that you have a liver injury. You can get a paracetamol level test done if you are very suspicious. I am sure that you have not take a toxic dose and are unlikely to suffer from any liver injury.
