Common Questions and Answers about Vicodin dosage mg

vicodin

Avatar n tn I posted earlier about some unusual experiences with sub but didn't give any details. My doc recommended me take either 4mg or 8 to start. I was in mild WDs, so I said I'll take 8 to make sure it would get me off those. He agreed, and said if i need more two hours later, take another. Anyway, to make a long story short, I ended up extremely sick the next day.
Avatar m tn t be 100% on the 4th day, but you will be well enough to work. I was on at least 3 times your dosage (not sure what mg you are taking, but I was taking 8-9 of the 10 mg Vicodin) I did my detox in a semi truck and am here to tell the tale! So, you should be just fine. Yes, definitely stick around here. We want to see you succeed!
Avatar n tn 5 mg and 10 mg..the 375 mg may be the tylenol that is mixed with it//// like it will say 5/500...that means 5 mg of hydrocodone and 500 mg of tylenol....at any rate..3 pills a day is very doable...but i do know that it is still hard...my average dose was 6 pills a day...you can start cutting down and then quit or just go ahead and quit....u will feel kinda clammy and flu-like for 4-5 days and the physical part will be pretty much over...
Avatar m tn Well, I've reached the end of day 2 of tapering plan that I posted yesterday. Today was officially my first day of only taking one dose of Vicodin, and I made it to the evening for my one dose. Since three days ago.. I've dropped from about 75 mg to 20 mg. Today was difficult, and last night was a great night of rest, but I'm honestly feeling really motivated by the community and support here. Thank you so much to everybody who has reached out and cheered me on.
1667772 tn?1303819811 then I found out my husband was having an affair, then he had to go to court for some other things and I felt I couldnt function without the pills, so I ended up taking more than I was.....I have been taking 10 mg Lortabs (which ran out) so now 5 mg Vicodin and also in between, 5 or 10 mg percocets (whatever I can get from friends)....I decided to cut down the past few days and today I feel terrible....Have sweats, chills,shivering, stomach pains, sneezing & stuffy nose..
Avatar m tn However i sometimes take up to 2,500 mg of acetaminophen at once. Now i always year people say the max apap dosage is 4,000 mg per day. But nobody says what the body can handle at one time. So basically what i'm wondering is.... Does anybody think its possible that i've damaged my liver beyond repair??
Avatar m tn Oxycodone also has an option without Tylenol. it is available in a 5 mg strength so this may be an option too. You need to discuss this with your doctor and ask him what options he/she can offer. I would highly suggest not going in and asking for a specific drug, this raises huge red flags. Just speak to your doctor and inform them that the Darvocet is not controlling the pain and that your concerned about the Tylenol content on a daily basis and they will adjust your medicines accordingly.
1511671 tn?1316564203 He explained it would be better for my liver as it does not have tylenol in it. I started on 10 mg 3x a day. After a week I called and they increased it to 20 mg. 3x a day. Still no real pain relief and sometimes I feel sleepy. I was just wondering if Methadone doesn't work with some people? I was really hoping when he raised the dosage I would suddenly be pain free, well I can dream!
Avatar f tn I have chronic pain, I had surgery for severe tennis elbow in 2007, now I have developed arthritis in the same elbow, my ortho doctor has me taking Vicodin 5/500 twice a day, can this become an ddiction?
890735 tn?1261421725 t be able to afford my habit and decided I needed to start quitting yesterday (I have thought and tried half-*** before but never followed through) I was taking 130-150 MG a day and have taken 90 MG yesterday and 90 MG today... tomorrow I hope to go down to 80 MG and 10 MG a day from there on.. Would like to know if anyone has been through something similar and if so... maybe throw some nice words out there for me! It would be appreciated.
Avatar n tn i have taken vicodin for about 10 years now. I have never increased the dosage or abuse the med. my dr recently put me on tramadol which i'll try anything. i am to take 2 tramadol twice daily or as needed along with 800 mg ibuprofen twice daily. i have not found any resolve with this medication (i have been on it 2 weeks). i also have not had any typical withdrawl symptoms from stopping the vicodin. i have degeneration of my t3 and t4 vertebre and spinal rotation and of course subluxation.
Avatar f tn The other post that was started about this said 3 1/2 10's, which I would guess be 35 mg/day norco, then the same post said 35 mg 3X/day, which would total 105 mg/day. Still not terribly outrageous, but the difference in the two amounts would make a difference. I'm still confused...
Avatar n tn e., with antihistamine chlorpheniramine 4 mg, decongestant phenylephrine 12.5 mg, and cough suppressant dextromethorphan 15 mg, each per 5 mL), then the guideline dose for a 4-year-old is one-quarter teaspoon (the one-half teaspoon dose is for age 6-11 years, while the full teaspoon dose is for ages 12 years and up).
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!
1686743 tn?1306005451 I increased the second time I took these meds to 30 mg 3times day and the oxy15 mg 4 times with only some relief bring the pain level 4/5, but only last for 2 to 2 1/2 hrs. What would be the next meds to change to. I believe my tolerance level on this medication has reduced the effectiveness.
232328 tn?1207090071 I was prescribed anti-depressants along with vicodin, but the vicodin became my anti-depressant and I started abusing it, which led to more problems. Just a word of caution.
Avatar f tn I am on 15 mg morphine er every12 hours for 2 years and it does not help like it use to.My doctor said we could go on Hysingla ER for a few months than back on the morphine.The decision to do anything is up to me but I am very hesitate because I never heard of this drug,is it going to stop any withdrawals and is it even good for pain.

1687929 tn?1319426011 Hi, may I ask what dosage of Topamax were u on...I tried to up my dosage and got worse, now that I am at the lowest dosage I am ok....just wondering if it was the dosage? And by pain r u talking headache's...some have all over pains...so I am asking to what end ur pain is. I am not a fan of meds either, so I understand where u r coming from.
Avatar f tn Do the benefits outweigh the risks? As far as I know vicodin is not safe to take during pregnancy in any dosage but again, you need to talk to your doctor asap.
Avatar f tn I think the withdrawal symptoms are kicking in now, even though I went from about 10 mg. to 5-6 mg. in 3 weeks. I feel like I have the flu. I also have Fibromyalgia, so I always feel achy. Plus, I just relocated here, don't have a job, or regular friends, so my attention keeps going to how lousey I feel. I DON'T HAVE A LIFE (yet). Mr. Sway, if you can get off the subutex this year, do so, it makes it easier in the long run.
