THIS IS A LIFE THREATENING EMERGENCY!! Call 911 or go IMMEDIATELY TO CLOSEST EMERGENCY ROOM.  I am an ER nurse and have seen the devastating effects of tylenol poisoning.  Try to bring bottle with you.  If your sister refuses or hesitates to come with you to emergency room DO NOT WASTE TIME trying to convince her.  Call 911.  It is vital that she get medical care NOW.  Good luck - I'm praying for you.

What do you mean you can't call 911? Why didn't you call yesterday?? That makes no sense. Tylenol poisoning can cause complete liver failure and without a transplant then death. Why are you gambling with her life?  It's not up to you to decide if it's too late or not. She needs to be seen by a doctor, Also she has attempted suicide.  She'll probably try again. She needs counseling.
