he takes that and sometimes even more that he gets from his dad and others... he has been on it for about 6 years or a lil more... he has lung problems (copd, pulmonary fibrosis) , heart problems (chf, had a stent put in a lil over a year ago) , diabetes (type 2), neuropathy, is on oxygen, is in and out of the hospital constantly, oh and this past year sept. got overdosed of his antidepressents and has been having seizures ever since.
My concerns would be the amount of acetaminophen he is consuming. If he takes 360 pills a month he is taking on average 12 tabs per day and at 325mg acetaminophen per pill it is pushing him very close to the amount of acetaminophen that could cause liver damage. If he is in severe chronic pain he may do better looking at a long acting drug like OxyContin or MSContin. He would get better pain control and not have so much acetaminophen to hurt his liver. This is a discussion to be had with his Dr. Especially if he is going through his script and digging into another persons pills too. That is an awful lot for the liver to handle especially with all his other health issues.
