what will it do to your body health wise husband takes about ten tabs ten or sevens daily an drinks nothing but dr pepper like four one liters a day or more everyday now. worried about his health condition an well being.noticed him acting differently an ect.?
I know the feeling only to well I take my meds and I need to be put on a higher dose the pain causes me to not be hungry and I just can't eat since I hurt to much, however I seem to live on coke or water I have noticed that being inactive even though I don't eat that I have put weight on because there are so many calories in soda,but I just can't stand the taste of diet soda, it makes me sick to my stomach. so I am trying to stop drinking so much soda and try to eat at least one thing a day. Pain does cause one to not want to eat. at east for me.
Your husband is getting too much acetaminophen
The lortab 10mg have either 650mg or 500mg in them. Whichever he is on is still over the daily limit which is 4000mg. He is taking somewhere between 5000mg and 6500mg if he is taking 10 tablets a day. Is that his prescribed dose or is he taking extra? I cant imagine his dr would have him on all that for 10 years. Too much acetaminophen can damage his liver. There are many other pain medications that do not contain it at all.
I suggest you and he bring this concern to his drs attention and also he should have his liver checked. Glad to hear he doesn't drink alcohol.
What do you mean about him acting differently? Please explain as he may have other issues to deal with. Good thing you got on here to express your concern. You are a good wife. Waiting for your response. Sable
