Phil
how many vicodin es in 1 day?
I've been on vicodin for 6 months and now I have been prescribed vic es, is 8 in 1 day too many? It seems that whenever I take any I don't feel the effects at all anymore including the lessoning of pain. So is 8 in 1 day ok?

I'm on vicodin too. It's hard because the more you take it the more you get used to it and you want to take more. It takes my edge off my pain, but it would work better if I took more. You probably built up a tolerance to them. Taking 8 shouldn't hurt you but you have to be careful of the amount of Tylenol that's with it because your only supposed to take 1000 mg every four hrs, so be careful of that. Good luck to ya.

You can take 8 vicodin es in one day. The es is extra strength. The only difference between regular vicodin and the es is the amount of acidaminaphin in each pill. I have taken 6 at one time and was fine, had a mild stomach ache but it didnt hurt me. So good luck with your pain management.

Eight Vicodin ES in 24 hours is too much. The maximum amount of acetaminophen (Tylenol) you can take is 4000 mg--assuming you are adult. Each Vicodin ES has 750 mg of tylenol, so the most you can take is 5 a day. You run the risk of damaging your liver if you take too much tylenol.

Usually Vicodin ES is 7.5 hydrocodone. 7.5mg of narcotic 500mg of tylenol. I've taken thousands of them over many years for a spine injury

8 would put you right at the max for the tylenol. It's best to trust info like you are asking to you doctor, pharmacy, or this link
http://pdrhealth.com

here's the actual link straight to hydrocodone
http://www.pdrhealth.com/drugs/rx/rx-mono.aspx?contentFileName=Vic1480.html&contentName=Vicodin&contentId=626

Right after having a spine operation I was taking 8, 10/500 hydrocodone a day but that was for only a few days. My normal dose for the past several years has been 4 a day as needed

I would call your pharmacy or your doctors service and have him call you back. It's far better to be safe than sorry.



EDIT: and ES does NOT mean 750 mg. of tylenol. That why I gave you the link,,,just because of false info like that!
