Is 15 mg of hydrocodone (1500mg apap) too much for someone that weighs 125-130 lbs?

Is 15 mg of hydrocodone (1500mg apap) too much for someone that weighs 125-130 lbs?

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

My son took 3.5 mg of hydrocodone. He weighs 100 pounds, will he be ok?

My son took 3.5 mg of hydrocodone. He weighs 100 pounds, will he be ok?

Probably: Why did he take this and how did he get just 3.5 mg? I am not familiar with this dose. Based on weight alone he should be ok but more important is why he took it, and how he got a hold of it. This, like all medications, should be securely kept to avoid others from taking it. One of the most common sources of adolescents taking controlled substances is getting into the family medicine cabinet! ...Read more

I was prescribed 10/325 mg of hydrocodone today and wanted to know if it was safe to take two of them at once?

How did your doctor: Prescribe them. I am certain that it was to take one tablet every 4-6 hours as needed. That is what is safe. More is not. ...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
