i just got out of the er and i have a broken collar bone, bruised ribs, broken ankle, and relocated and sprained left hip (it was dislocated but was put back into place.) i tried one, even two of these pills and they aren't making the slightest difference. should i ask the doc. that prescribed them for a higher dosage? or should i just take 3 (not above the 1k mg of acetaminophen at 3)
How much hydrocodon acetaminophen 5-325 would it be safe to take at once?

How many pills are safe
Your going to hurt for a while so you need to get to a Doctor that is going to treat you for some time. I recommend your primary care Doctor or an Orthopedic Surgeon if you have not already seen one. Because of new changes int he law the ER's are restricted to what they can prescribe, very restricted.
You should be on the 10-325 to begin with, not the 5-325. Don't wait either, the longer you wait the longer you will suffer. You do have another option if the pain is just unbearable and that is to go to the ER for pain control and they can admit you with IV meds until the pain level decreases enough where you can tolerate it.
Dont take more than prescribed. If it is not working, you need to let your Dr know. You may need something stronger.
Don't go over what is prescribed, you'll run out too soon. Contact the dr and let him know.
