Important Vicodin Question
I'm confused about mg's. I was reading a posting that says they were taking 150 mg a day what is that? I take 10-20 pills a day usually Vicodin ES or Vicodin HP. For the past week it has been Percoset because that was all I could get.  I tried to stop and failed after 3 days. Tomorrow is my day...Im going to make it this time. But I just want to understand things a little better...Can anyone explaine if I take 10-15 ES a day how much is that?

there should be a # on the prescrip bottle, 5/150, or 7.5/150, or 10/150...the 5, 7.5 or 10 indicate the MG of Vicoding. the 150 indicates the Acetometaphin (Tylenol)...People dont realize, all of that tylenol is also very harmful to your body..when you take 20 pills, your taking 3000MG of tylenol with the Vic...

So does that mean if I take 20 of the vic 750es Im taking 150 mg of Hydrocodone? I dont mean to sound stupid.....I just want to know how bad my situation is. I know addiction is bad no matter what but would that be concidered very high??Thank you all so much for the information and support. Im still terrified but you are making me feel like tomorrow (my day 1) will be "surviveable"....And I can do it because I have you all to help me through it.

the first number is the mgs fo hydr..if it says 7.5, then multiply 7.5 but the number of pills u take each day...for instance 10 pills would be 75 mgs of hydrocodone..the second number/which is much higher/is the dose of tylenol...most are 325 mgs are 500 mgs...so if the second number is 500, and u take 10 pills a day, then u r taking 5000 mgs of tylenol which is above the toxic dose.....the bottle will read sumpin like   7.5/500  or 7.5/325 etc
