In brief: Lorcet (hydrocodone and acetaminophen)

Locet has 650mg Acetaminophen (this is the issue).
If you take 7gm in one dose you will have liver failure. The fda suggested max daily dose is 4gm - from a clinician point of view it is not recommended to take more than 2-2.5gm per day. The fda will be limiting meds to no more than 350mg of Acetaminophen per tab.
