Maximum vicodin dosage per day

Common Questions and Answers about Maximum vicodin dosage per day


Avatar n tn 6 day max for tylenol would be 24,000mg, divided into 4000 per day max. The hydro at 325 of tylenol use at 120 pills in 6 days (20 per day average)is 6500 per day at 325mg per level and 16,500 at 750mg level (I don't know your preparation, how much hydro, and how much tylenol) Both are too much tylenol per day. Peekawho a doc could prescribe 120 tabs, but this is a months supply if taken according to specs. 4 per day. But, who takes that few?
Avatar m tn I don't ever want to go over the 4000 mg per day which is allowed, (said my doctor). I remember when I first started it only took 2-3 a day to relieve the pain. Once I'm finished with softball I'm going to try to hold back to a maximum of 4. I do see the doctor every 6 months and they say I'm in great shape for my age. I suffer from no side effects. If and when I can convience my wife to move to Nebraska for an early retirement I will not need as much.
620048 tn?1358021835 you shouldn't take more than 8 norco 10/325 in one day, nor should you take more than 6 vicodin 5/500 in one day. Higher levels than that can and will eventually cause liver damage. By the older standards 2 vicodin and 2 norco x a day was 950mg of Acetaminophen to much. (2*500*3= 3000, 2*325*3= 1950, 3000+1950= 4950, 4950-4000= 950).
380979 tn?1199731724 They have had similar feeling until they got there dosage amount to the right mg per day.. I hope that helps.. Can I ask a personal Question? I was wondering if you every OD on the EXTREME amount of tylenol you were ingesting that came along with the 750 vicodin? I also have taken alot of those(due to just being able to get them, and nothing else stronger) So I would pop like 4-5 at a time every 2-3 hours until the day ended, and then start right back up in the morning..
1689696 tn?1305822697 The real problem comes from ppl who take other medications that contain apap dosage. At 3,000 mg per day one must be aware that they should not be cautious of taking another medication containing apap as that could put one over the 4,000mg recommendation. The following is from the FDA Website: Begin Quote: " There is no immediate danger to patients who take these combination pain medications and they should continue to take them as directed by their health care provider,” said Kweder.
Avatar n tn Wow, I have been taking vicodin 2-3 per day for a couple of weeks for four slipped discs causing nerve pain. I'm also taking 900 mg of neurontin. I wish to God I could experience the feelings that many of you have expressed, but i feel that the meds I am on are barely touching the pain. Am I getting the wrong kind of vicodin? Is this the wrong drug for me??
Avatar n tn I too am an addict (Vicodin is my drug of chioice--average 8 per day)and I have been addicted to this evil drug for the last 1-2 years. Prior to that I abused Valium and whatever else I could get my hands on. I have had a love affair with various different pills for as long as I can remember. The strange thing is that I never got into alcohol or "street" drugs.
Avatar m tn My wife has been on 80 to 100 mg 10-325 dosage vicodin for close to 10 years now. Blood tests say her liver is fine (so the doctor says) and she has hep C. She also started taking oxycodone 10 mg 5 times a day about 1 1/2 years ago. We feel she needs to end the vicodin usage asap and up the dosage of the oxycodone. She has been bringing this up to her pain management phys-assistant for 6 to 8 months and she tells her just keep doing what your doing!
Avatar n tn This is my worst fear so I want to stop well in advance. I guess this dosage indicates I am taking 23mg per day? At this amount would a baby be born addicted?
Avatar n tn I have had no failures with this treatment (everyone OK after less than a month) and have treated addictions (including my own) as varied as methadone and cigarettes. The cigarrete smoker reduced from 2 packs per day to just 5 cigarettes per day in a week without any discomfort. If you suffer any kind of 'hang out' just increase the zinc/mag dosage and give it a liitle longer to take effect (a week or so).
Avatar n tn I have severe depression and anxiety. I was taking prozac as my last med. I take 2-3 50mg pills per day, no more or no less. I can tell you that ultram has changed my life! My business was failing due to my bad attitude and now is thriving. I am for the first time in my life happy and never have felt normal. Friends and familly have stated that they have noticed an unbeleivable change in me. I now can lead a very productive and happy life.
Avatar n tn Did I have withdrawls, yes I did, but what makes people keep using is those withdrawls, but unless you endure some suffering you won't get through to the other side of being free, and I realized this and I wanted to be vicodin free, not 1 a day, 0 a day...
Avatar n tn So Vicodin is considered a class B medication which means they have discovered no concrete evidence of it effecting the fetus withdraw symptoms are actually much more stressful on the baby I'm not saying 10 a day is a good idea that's just bad for anyone because that amount of Tylenol can cause severe damage to internal organs the low weight of the baby is more than likely attributed the the fact that she smokes so much the combination of Tylenol overdose and lack of proper oxygen circulation to

Avatar f tn eat a lot of really facilitates weight loss. I eat about 500g of yogourt per day and drink 2-3 glasses of milk per day. Topamax alone won't make you lose the weight, it will just make it easier for you to do it on your own. I hope this helps you!! Have a great week!!
Avatar n tn The cigarrete smoker reduced from 2 packs per day to just 5 cigarettes per day in a week without any discomfort. If you suffer any kind of 'hang out' just increase the zinc/mag dosage and give it a liitle longer to take effect (a week or so). Don't beleive all the bullshit about drug addiction you have heard - it's all **** - this is the real deal.
Avatar f tn I was prescribed Tramadol for pain 6 years ago and was on the maximum pharmaceutical dose of 400 mg per day for 4 years. It's effectiveness tapered fairly rapidly; however, I considered it better than nothing as my pain levels were not up to what they were originally but I was in more pain than I was after first starting the Tramadol and the pain was increasing as time went on.
544292 tn?1268886268 I need more! More information! Question - How bad is Tramadol WIthdrawal? Answer - Ultram (Tramadol) Withdrawal Tramadol is highly addictive. Normally your doctor would reduce intake slowly. Various withdrawal effects may include shakes, shivers, diarrhea, nausea, and possible flu-like symptoms. Not all people experience will all withdrawal symptoms, and some people may experience others not listed here.
Avatar f tn Different product will contain different dosage combination of acetaminophen and hydrocodone. The maximum daily dose of acetaminophen is 4000 mg. If you take more than the daily dose, you will be at risk for severe liver damage. Please also avoid drinking alcohol while taking acetaminophen, because it further increases the risk for liver damage. If you are taking Vicodin or generic acetaminophen-hydrocodone 500/5, it will contain acetaminophen 500 mg and hydrocodone 5 mg.
Avatar f tn I am prescribed Tramadol 50mg written as take 1-2 tabs every 4-6 hours No more than 8 tablets per day.. So if I was to get 80 of them. . That is a 10 day supply. I actually only take 6 per day. Everytime I call for a refill about 20 mins later a nurse calls me and tells me I'm 2 weeks early and that its a 28 day medication. I say its not a matter of days its an as needed medicine and I can take 8 per day!
544292 tn?1268886268 Great that at least we could do something about the pain while we tried to get them through withdrawal. Second day after we had been giving a couple folks ultram, started noticing that nurses didn't need to go find patients when time for their next dose of ultram... patients were at the nurses door eagerly awaiting it. "Uh-oh" We all said. We backed off on frequency of use, but still did use on occasion.

Avatar n tn According to the PDR, the dose of Vicodin is 1-2 tablets 4-6 hours per day. The maximum depends on the dose of the Vicodin. If the hydrocodone component is 5mg or less, than the maximum dosage is 8 tablets. If the hydrocodone component is 5mg or more, than the maximum dosage is 5-6 tablets. I would consult with your personal physician to make sure what is the appropriate dosage for your husband.
Avatar f tn com/article/820200-overview lists general toxicity (overdose) amounts in healthy humans in the 7-10 gram range, and states that if you are healthy (not malnourished, have a healthy liver, etc), not consuming alcohol, and follow daily dosing limits of 4 grams per day, risks of liver damage are very small. This is the reference I read when the FDA notice first came out, so I did not worry about my current practice of giving my (teenaged) kids or husband extra strength tylenol.
Avatar n tn If you do NOT have liver problems, the adult maximum dose of acetaminophen is 4 grams per day (4000 milligrams). If you take more than the maximum daily amount, it may cause serious (possibly fatal) liver disease. Tell your doctor immediately if you have any of the following symptoms of liver damage: severe nausea, yellowing eyes or skin, dark urine, stomach pain, extreme fatigue.
Avatar f tn But have since learned never to take Fiorinal or Fiorcet for more than 3 days in a row (my maximum is 6 per day). I use it for migraines. I switch to Excedrin migraine on the fourth day. I don't know if taking that might lessen your withdrawl symptoms. But it helps me when I am in pain and am concerned about the addiction factor. If my headaches are really bad I put the 6 pills out at the beginning of the day on a piece of paper near a pen and write down what time I take them.
Avatar f tn The maximum dosage of acetaminophen for the body per day USED to be 4000 mgs, but it has been moved down to 3000 mgs. That means if you go over that amount, you're stressing your liver. Vicodin regular strength comes in 5/325; the second number is the acetaminpen. If you took 10 pills a day, that would be 3250 mgs which is too much. It's hard to say if you're having pain from liver issues or not; I don't know your general health history. Do you drink alcohol?
Avatar n tn I've been on tramadol for 10 years at the maximum dose of 400 mg per day. I have to say I love tramadol. I love the feeling of strength and the terrific mental boost. I take 4 in the morning for the high and to get through the work day and then a couple in the late afternoon, and a couple at bedtime to go to sleep. I used to be able to get a lot of it at one time from the original doctor who prescribed it to me - 180 a month! Just recently though I can't get it anywhere!
Avatar f tn 500 mg You should never take more than 4 pills per day or you risk damaging your liver due to the dosage of acetaminophen. * If it turns out your liver disease is minimal - the adult maximum dose of acetaminophen is 4 grams per day (4000 milligrams). If you take more than the maximum daily amount, it may cause serious (possibly fatal) liver disease.
Avatar n tn About a month ago I decided to start a slow weening process to discontinue the use of oxycodone. I am now down to just one and a half pills per day, of 5-325 Norcos. My maximum dose in any one day in the past was four 10-325 Norcos. I have all the typical symptoms, RLS, loose stools, anxiety, but I also have lost about 15-20 pounds over the last month. I have not read anyone else post about weight loss from oxycodone use or WD. However I have not ever seen a overweight herion addict either.
