Could I take hydrocodone and tylenol (acetaminophen) together?

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.

I had this morning of 1000mg of Tylenol (acetaminophen) and another at about 7pm of 1000 and I have to take 2 tsp of hydrocodone-homatropine syrup. Can I take it now?

The cough syrup. hydrocodone-homatropine doesn't contain Tylenol (acetaminophen). So, yes, you can take it if you need to. However, except for the first dose, I don't recommend taking 1000 mg of Tylenol per dose There's no appreciable increased symptom relief from 1000 mg compared to 650 mg & it's too easy to go over the 4000 mg daily dose ceiling. Best wishes. Dr. Anne. Read more...

YES. Hydrocodone is a narcotic and should never be taken without a prescription. As a general rule, when experiencing pain always try a non-narcotic pain medication first, such as advil, aleve, tylenol, (acetaminophen) etc, before taking a narcotic, even when the narcotic has been prescribed by your doctor. Pain rarely kills, but narcotics can. Especially when combined with alcohol or other sedatives. Read more...
