Vicoden is a catch all name for hydrocodone with acetominophen (tylenol). There are many strengths ranging from 2.5 to 10mg for the hydrocodone and 325mg to 750 mg for the acetominophen. The strengths are written with the first number being the hydrocodone and the second number being the acetominophen. For example: 5/325 contains 5 mg hydrocodone and 325 mg acetominophen.
The maximum you can take per day is somwhat dependent on the amount of acetominophen. You can take up to 1000mg at a time, no more than 4000mg a day of acetominophen.
There are actually two different types of Vicoden: Vicoden ES and
Vicoden HP. You can take up to 5 tablets a day of Vicoden ES and and up to 6 tablets a day Vicoden HP.
