... hours as needed. On days where my pain is very severe I have taken 10 tablets in one day. Is this to high of a dosage?

This is a good way to lose your prescription and also a good way to poison yourself. The max on acetaminophen is 4,000mg a day, but most agree to be safe it shouldn't be more than half that. Your liver will fail if you keep this up. If your pain is that bad I strongly recommend you discuss it with your Dr. rather than exceed the instructions like that.
