Probably: hydrocodone comes mixed usually with Tylenol at 5mg, 7.5mg and 10mg. What dose is too much depends on how long you have been taking this med. I would certainly not start a patient at that dose. When you take this you should not drive or drink or operate machinery. If you find yourself nodding out, falling asleep or exhibiting a change in your behavior please seek help. ...Read more

Is it okay to take 6 5/500 mg hydrocodone?

No advisable.: Do you mean taking it all at once ? If yes, i would not advise it. You will have taken 30 mg of hydrocodone and 3 gm of tylenol all at once if you do it. 30 mg of hydrocodone may be too much for you as a single dose and 3 gm of tylenol leaves you with igm of additional tylenol before you reach the allowable 4 gm tylenol quantity limit/day. Tylenol and nsaids have a ceiling effect. ...Read more

Work w/addiction doc: Find an addiction specalist close to you & work w/him/her to get you off Methadone w/o getting you hooked on something else. Actually, who ever is prescribing your Methadone can work w/you by writing smaller & smaller doses each time. You're the deciding factor behind quitting. You can beat this. Good luck! and if you don't have insurance, go search online for free care (or check out my site). ...Read more
