Had a breast augmentation on Wed (Jan 7).
Was prescribed hydrocodne/acetaminophen 7.5/325mg, Valium 5mg, and Promethazine 25mg.

What amount acetaminophen in a day?

What amount acetaminophen in a day?

Least amount...: ...necessary not to exceed 3000mg in a 24-hour period of time. Don't take it all at once either, because it won't be any more effective in mega-doses. Not the best pain med available over the counter, just useful for fevers. ...Read more
