You can but...: Most hydrocodone prescriptions contain apap aka Acetaminophen (tylenol). Your total apap intake is what you need to monitor. In general, in adults who do not have liver problems and are not heavy drinkers, you want to avoid taking more than 4000mg in any given day; 2000mg if you are taking frequently/daily.
