I was recently prescribed Hydrocodone 5mg Acetaminophen 325mg because i had jaw sergery. my doctor told me to take one at a time no more then 3 times a day. But like most drugs i have an extremely high tolarance. It relieves no pain what so ever. i asked my doctor for something stronger but he insisted it that was the best he could do. honestly how many can i take at a time without risk of overdose? im in extreme pain because they had to break my jaw. the doctor gave me 12 shots in my mouth to numb the pain. i could still feel every bit of it. and was in extreme pain during the sergery. the doctor insisted he already gave me too much and could not do any more for me. I want to take enough to be out of it but not risk my health. i would wrather sleep till this pain is gone. if you need to know my size and weight to judge how much i can handle im 5'9" 180 lbs. please help me soon. i dont want to take too much at once. I know they put the acetaminophen in there to keep people from trying to abuse it. what is a safe limit of the acetaminophin and the codone? sorry my english is not best. hope you can read this ok.
