Whatever the instruction from the Dr is, no more. If you feel you need more than the Dr is currently allowing ask him for an increase. Not for anyone online to authorize.
First of all. The Norco is not an appropriate medication for someone dealing with stage 4 cancer, and chemo. You should have a continuous action pain medication and something like plain oxycodone for breakthrough pain. If our society has gotten to the point that cancer patients can't have appropriate treatment, I am extremely glad I've retired and don't have to tell patients I can't give them anything for pain. There isn't an amount of Tylenol, its more a case of if its taken over a period of time on a regular basis. I would tell the dr its not helping you and you are concerned about all the Tylenol.
