Hydrocodone overdose how much

Common Questions and Answers about Hydrocodone overdose how much


Avatar m tn There are really too many variables on how much is too much for the hydrocodone. Beyond his weight, age, medical conditions, etc... as his resistance builds up, he can take more and more without overdosing so there's no way to know at what point he can overdose by the amount he is taking. But like someone else pointed out, Lortab definitely contains acetaminophen and the hydrocodone likely does as well.
Avatar n tn Can a baby overdose off of hydrocodone, oxycodone , or Roxycodone through breast milk if the mother takes the right dosage, or slightly more, only once a day and not everyday. If he breastfeeds while its in the mothers system, is sleepiness a sign of overdosing? If so, can l the overdose possibly death happen after the mother is no longer on medication?
Avatar m tn Thus, a patient may need a much higher dose for pain control, yet still overdose none the less. So, I would recommend you to be very cautious, no matter how tolerant you may think you are. Please let me know if you would like to get clean one day. Resetting you system allows you to evaluate how much opiates you actually need and how much pain is cause by the development of hyperalgesia.
Avatar n tn This cough syrup combines an anti-histamine (chlorpheniramine) with a codeine-like cough suppressant called hydrocodone. Tussionex stops coughing well, but it carries a risk of potential side effects, including drowsiness, constipation, lightheadedness, and vomiting. The hydrocodone component is also an addictive medication and should be used with caution.
Avatar n tn Guaifenesin, how much is an Overdose? My daughter 11 years old 100 lbs (big for her age), took (the correct dose) 5mL cough and cold medicine that had the following in that dose. Guaifenesin, USP 100 mg, Dextromethorpan HBr, USP 10 mL. Phenylephedrine HCI, USB 5mg. But then she also took (the correct dose) 10 mg of a prescription medicine Guaifenesin-Codeine syrup (generic for Robitussin AC syrup). It doesn't state on the label the quantity of Guaifenesin mg in the 5mL dose.
Avatar f tn Seek emergency medical attention if you think you have used too much of this medicine. A tramadol overdose can be fatal. Overdose symptoms of a tramadol overdose may include drowsiness, shallow breathing, slow heartbeat, extreme weakness, cold or clammy skin, feeling light-headed, fainting, or coma. Tramadol may be habit-forming and should be used only by the person it was prescribed for.
Avatar f tn Xanax , in combination with opiates/opioids contributes to huge numbers resulting overdose deaths. Both types of medications can cause respiratory suppression, and using them both together compounds the effects. Most PM doctors want any and all scheduled medications prescribed by one office, making it easier to track usage, fills, and compliance.
Avatar m tn Hello. We are concerned. This is not a safe combination. Drinking wine would not be advised at all. I assume these medications are prescribed. If so, please speak to your physician for guidance if they feel wine is acceptable in any amount when taking these scheduled substances. It will most likely be advised to consume no alcohol at all. Please be safe and take care of yourself.
Avatar f tn I am an abuser - recretional use. I got off hydrocodone rather easy. Tramadol detox is MUCH harder for me, so I am tapering off. Believe me, I'd much rather go cold turkey, but I can't, at this time, stop my life and take two or three weeks off work to detox. I was on a huge dose though - up to 18 pills a day. Educate yourself here.
Avatar n tn You are young and have so much life ahead of you....but not if you misuse drugs. I am not trying to judge you.... I am just very concerned for you! Please seek some counselling and find how to get high on life instead of drugs. Life is so short and so precious!

229538 tn?1300377767 Jimmy WASHINGTON (AP) — Federal health advisers want new restrictions on hydrocodone, the highly addictive painkiller that has grown into the most widely prescribed drug in the U.S. The recommendation from a panel of drug safety specialists would subject Vicodin and dozens of other medicines to the same restrictions as other narcotic drugs like oxycodone and morphine.
610505 tn?1329603723 Don't take opiates while on suboxone....while you won't feel the opiates because the sub blocks them, they will still be in the system and if you do too much you can overdose. And you're not going to get high anyways, so DONT TAKE THE CHANCE.
Avatar n tn Cymbalta (60 MG), Hydrocodone-Acetaminophen (5-500 MG), Ibuprofen (800 MG), Mobic (15 MG), Oxycodone-Acetaminophen (5-500 MG), Plaquenil (200 MG), Xanax (0.5 MG).
1162610 tn?1262829016 there is a lot of mis-information about Trams, great post above, and just be very careful as far as length of use, how much, etc. We wouldn't want to see you having to go through another h3ll with that, after the hydros. Stay strong and keep posting, it helps a lot. Have you tried Melatonin for sleep? It really helped me a TON, I can't stress that enough!
Avatar m tn i am addicted to hydrocodone. ive been taking them for 3yrs. the last 7 months about 10 pills a day. 10/650 or 10/325. i stopped a couple of weeks ago. my dr. put me on suboxone. my question is: ive seen alot of stories about addiction, like i said i was taking 10 pills a day, which i thought was alot, and maybe. but some people on here were to 30 and 40 pills a day. i havent seen a post where people talk about the damage the pills have caused their liver or kidneys.
699217 tn?1323438700 I wanted to know what the difference is between hydrocodone and like-oxycontin or oxycodone, Percocet, tramadol, is this all just types of hydrocodone? All I ever took was hydrocodone....
Avatar m tn how often should you have your liver and kidney function tested when taking hydrocodone for an extended period of time( 3 years). I have taken 5-20 mg a day, 10 mg being the norm, for about 2 years and my annual physicals & blood work say I'm fine. I'm just wondering how fast that can change and how often would it be considered wise to check. with all the aches and pains in my back I feel I wouldn't know if my kidneys were giving me pain as opposed to my back.
Avatar m tn This is being reconsider and there is a push to lower this limit to 2,500. So be cautious. As Audrea stated much depends on your genes, how your body metabolizes the drug. It's impossible to know how it effects each of us but age does figure it to it.
612876 tn?1355514495 The stronger ones such as hydrocodone are schuduled more wisley than these in my opinion. Having them seem less effective therefore some may think they can take more of it to control their pain.
Avatar m tn ER nurses and doctors are trainned to see signs of drug overdose. If they suspect overdose they will get you the help you need. Panic attacks will not have same symptoms. So I agree with everything that hadenough123. It has been a while for me also since I worked ER.
1316076 tn?1274155718 How much are you taking a day? Tapering will help ease the wd's. Do you have anyone that can hold your pills for you? As for the Waismann Method, really do your homework on this. There are some problems associated with this.
3149845 tn?1506627771 Does anyone know how much tylenol intake will cause liver damage. I ask this as have read a few help posts and some people are taking 20 norcos a day which is 10mg of opiate and 325 mg of tylenol. I was doing some math and taking 20 a day adds up to almost 1/4 ounce of tylenol a day, or 1/2 lb a month and a whopping 6 lbs a year!!!
