That will blow your liver away bud.

Do not do it. Switch to ibuprofen or aspirin. Drink tons and tons of water or juices.
I do not know what your body weight is, but that is enough acetominaphen to really do some damage.

  Phosphates are fertilizers so it's likely in there to make you fit & strong, A degree of responsibility is always essential with phosphates as they are an active constituent in bomb making & it is therefore important to keep them away from children & Muslims

  No, you will need to swallow them. Also, do not swallow too many because acetaminophen will kill you by poisoning your liver 48 hours after, if you do too many.

There are a lot of different strengths to this combination of pill. If you have the 8mg Codeine content ones, you are wasting your time.

Long term use of Codeine Phosphate 30mg?
Hello, I was wondering if there was any physical side effects of using codeine phosphate for long term use apart from the possible addiction? Thankyou!

  The most frequent adverse reactions include lightheadedness, dizziness, sedation, nausea, and vomiting. These effects seem to be more prominent in ambulatory than in non ambulatory patients, and some of these adverse reactions may be alleviated if the patient lies down.

Other adverse reactions include euphoria, dysphoria, constipation, and pruritus.

Drug Abuse and Dependence

Controlled Substance: Codeine phosphate is a Schedule II narcotic.

Dependence

Although much less potent in this regard than morphine, codeine can produce drug dependence a.d. therefore, has the potential for being abused. Patients given 60 mg codeine every 6 hours for 2 months usually show some tolerance and mild withdrawal symptoms. Development of the dependent state is recognized by an increased tolerance to the analgesic effect and the appearance of purposive phenomena (complaints, pleas, demands, or manipulative actions) shortly before the time of the next scheduled dose. A patient in withdrawal should be treated in a hospital environment. Usually, it is necessary only to provide supportive care with administration of a tranquilizer to suppress anxiety. Severe symptoms of withdrawal may require administration of a replacement narcotic.

Is it safe to mix Carisoprodol with Hydrocodone?
The Carisoprodol is a muscle relaxer I think, and it says to take one every night before bed. And then the hydrocodone is take 1 to 2 tablets every 4 to 6 hours as needed. They were both prescribed by different doctors..can I take them both together?
Oh I just read on the carisoprodol container that it's substituted for Soma. I don't know if that helps, I've never heard of either one of them lol.

  Yes, I used to take both for TMJ symptoms. Taken together they will caused marked drowsiness, but since the SOma is at bedtime anyway, it shouldn't be a problem for you.

Out of codeine and dextropropoxyphene, which is the strongest pain reliever?
Particularliy in combination with acetaminophen (Paracetamol, Tylenol) as follows:
500mg acetaminophen and 8mg codeine phosphate
325mg acetaminophen and 50mg dextropropoxyphene napsylate

Reply
  TYLENOL WITH CODEINE
500mg acetaminophen and 8mg codeine phosphate

DARVOCET

325mg acetaminophen and 50mg dextropropoxyphene napsylate

Your question is which is stronger- well the Darvocet is.

But the real question should be- what is more effective for pain.

That answer is- It depends on the type of pain and severity.

Darvocet is stronger.

Is taking 240mg of codeine phosphate in one dose every day dangerous?
I know about the addiction side, but I wondered whether doing this is damaging to the body?

  Yes, it is potentially very dangerous. The normal adult dosing is 15-60mg every 4-6 hours. The maximum in one dose should not exceed 60mg. The larger doses can increase the risk of codeine's side effects such as respiratory depresion, low blood pressure, slowed heart rate, seizures....
I recommend you only take the amount prescribed by your doctor, if the doses he/she prescribed aren't working, you need to talk to your doctor again to see what else they could try.


**Update** As far as the previous person stating that it was ok for you to take the 240mg at once, that is not correct. 240mg is the maximum amout recommened for a 24 hour period - not in one dose. One dose should not exceed 60mg.

You have your dosages mixed up! You need to be careful!!!

The MAX dose in 24 hours for Acetaminophen is 4000mg (4x1000mg Dose) every four hours

The Max dose of codeine in 24 hours is 400mg in ( up to 4x 100mg Single doseages) NOTE: ANYTHING AROUND 400MG SINGLE DOSE OF CODEINE CAN BE FATAL

What is the difference between Codeine Sulfate, Codeine, and Hydrocodone?
I have chronic cough and muscle stiffness and pain often. I have been prescribed everything from Tylenol 3 (30mg Codeine and Tylenol) to Hydrocodone 10mg/1000mg.

I've noticed that codeine seems quite weaker than Hydrocodone. If I take 2 hydrocodones, the same feeling takes 3-4 codeine tablets to acheive the desired feeling.

Recently, someone told me I should try Codeine Sulfate (60MG), they are small white tablets and contain no Tylenol, Asprin, or Ibuprofen. If I take 2 of these, will they be more similar to Hydrocodone or the Tylenol 3's?


What is the difference between Codeine Sulfate, Codeine, and Hydrocodone?
Repkying to first answer someone left.

Tylenol 3's and 4's are the combination of codeine with acetemetophin.

Hydrocodones (Vicodin, Lortab...etc) is the combination of Hydrocodone with acetemetophin.

Vicodin 5/500 is 5mg hydrocodone/500mg acetemetohin.

Tylenol 3's are 30mg Codeine / 300mg Acetemetophin.

Hydrocodone must be a different form of codeine that is stronger. MY main question is....What is the difference between Hydrocodone and Codeine? And where does codeine sulfate fit in the mix.

I do like your answer, it just lacks the main information I need.

  I'm not familiar with codeine sulfate vs. codeine.

I know that hydrocodone is a combination of codeine plus an NSAID. I think it's acetaminophen.

Hydrocodone will be more powerful than codeine alone, because the 2 drugs combined provide a stronger effect than either would separately. You can get the same thing from taking codeine and tylenol pills separately, 10 mg and 1000mg respectively. It's the same thing.

What OTC tablet is this?
I recently had my wisdom teeth pulled out. Well we were out of tylenol and advil and i dont like narcotics and i hadnt filled my script of non narc pain meds. Anyhow my good friend who is in her 50s, so not some young druggie teen,gave me some tablets that she said had codeine in them so be careful. Heres the thing she gave them to me in a baggie since they came from a big bottle. so i dont have that to look at. The tablet is rather thick and is convex with a flat ridge all the way around. It is all white, but has no other visible markings. (i did enquire with my friend what they were but she was going outa town and wasnt home to look at and wont be for 5 days!)
I know she didnt lie to me but for my own comfort id really like to find out what they are so i dont ruin my liver or god knows what.
I know its nearly impossible to identify an unmarked pill, and all drugs regulated by the FDA must be printed but that doesnt apply to OTC. I know their are otc codeine containing meds, im thinking its an acetaminophen/codeine phosphate type tablet. Can anyone think of what it may be from personal experience?

I woke up this morning with a bruised eyelid.?
I just started taking toviaz - could this be a reaction to the new medication? I am on a daily low-dose aspirin regimen and I also take aspirin for aches & pains. Last night I awoke with a headache (around 3 a.m.) and took 3 aspirin. When I woke up at 8 a.m. I had the bruise. Could the aspirin be responsible?

What does fiorinal with codeine feel like?
Can someone tell me what fiorinal and codeine feels like? I usually take vicodin when I get a severe migrain because thats the only thing that works!! I cant take topamox because it makes me forget and imitrex doesnt work! I have fiorinal without the codeine and it works ok but Ive heard that fiorinal with codeine is more effective!

  Vicodin has hydrocodone in it, and codeine in th fiorinal makes them both controlled substances. The hydrodocone is a stronger narcotic, but fiorinal is the med of choice for migraines, because of the compounded drugs and their action.

Is it safe to take 600mg ibuprofen after taking codral (codeine,paracetamol, phenylephrine hydrochloride)?
I took two Codral pills about three hours ago. Each pill contains 500mg Paracetamol, 9.5mg Codeine phosphate, and 5mg Phenylephrine Hydrochloride. I took them both at the same time.

My pain has come back hardcore. I have 600mg ibuprofen pills. Is it okay to take one since it has been 3 hours since the other pills? I feel like that's an awful lot of medicine...
I only took the recommended dosage as stated on the package. I didn't just decide to take two codrals for the heck of it. The medicine is available over the counter in Australia. I don't have a doctor here yet.
...that´s what she said.

Why do some people take Tylenol instead of aspirin?
I rarely taken meds like aspirin or tylenol, but I've been curious why people take Tylenol over aspirin sometimes? Is aspirin harmful, or is it just not as strong as tylenol for headaches and minor pains? What's the reasoning behind why people do or do not choose aspirin for minor pain relief?

  Aspirin is more likely to make you bleed because it thins the blood. People on prescription blood thinners or those who are prone to bleeding ulcers ( or bleeding anywhere in their body) should not take aspirin. Tylenol is safer for this reason although in large doses over a long period of time Tylenol can damage the liver. Also, unless okayed by a physician, aspirin and aspirin-containing products should not be given to children because of a serious, avoidable, rare condition it can cause called Reye's Syndrome.

What should I do if I took aspirin after possible concussion?
Slipped earlier going down the stairs at home fell on my but hard whipped my head back but did not hit it on anything. Have a pretty good headache so I took 2 aspirin.

Later read about concussions to see if I might possibly have one and have read DO NOT take aspirin after concussion. If I do have one what should I do if I took aspirin? My only symptom is a headache, nothing else.

  Chances are, you don't have a concussion. I've slipped on ice before, and I smashed my head against the it, and for a moment, I actually saw black. I laughed it off and was all fine. I just got an extreme headache, but it felt obvious I didn't have one because it went away after about an hour. (I was at school, so aspirin wasn't an option)
Is it persisting? If you have it for a couple hours, maybe you should go to the hospital, just to be safe?
You never know. Should be careful.
Hope it helps! :)

Does fiorinal with codeine give you the high feeling like vicodin?
I have just the regular fiorinal but am going to ask my Dr for the kind with codeine for my migrains. I know codeine is considered a narcotic but I've taken 222 pills and never felt "HIGH" does fiorinal with codeine make you high? And if not why is it a narcotic?

  Fiorinal is a barbiturate, the codeine while not exactly structurally the same as vicodin will get you "high". The barbiturate in Fiorinal is called butabutal and is in itself a narcotic.

  Aspirin has been known to be a moderate blood thinner, with reduced clotting ability, so it is possible for the hemmoroid bleeding to increase somewhat. I suggest you keep up the aspirin regimen, but also consider taking a daily dose of a fiber supplement, such as Metamucil or Citrucel to aid in easier bowel movements.

What is the difference between Promethazine VC w/ Codeine and Promethazine w/ Codeine?
I get pneumonia frequently and they usually give me Promethazine w/ Codeine 10-6.25 for my cough. This time they prescribed Promethazine VC w/ Codeine 10-5-6.25 instead. What is the difference and what does the "VC" mean?

  VC stands for the addition of a decongestant- so you have promethazine which is an antihistamine and codeine an opiod all in one. Sounds like it may work for you. Be careful with driving until you get used to their effect. It may also affect your sleep patterns.
