which is stronger Norco 5/325 or Vicodin 5/500?
The Vicodin is a bit stronger. They both have the same amount of narcotic pain reliever in them (5 mgs. hydrocodone) but Vicodin has about a third more acetaminophen (500-325 mgs.). Since acetaminophen enhances hydrocodone's effects the Vicodin is a bit stronger.
Thank you so much Cort.
My son who is a drug addict, says he is taking 3,000 mg. of Norco or Vicodin a day for his back pain. Is this possible???????
YES ! I FEEL FOR YOU ! I AM IN SERIOUS PAIN DUE TO CANCER AND I HAVE PROBS OBTAING MY MEDS DUE TO THE ADDICTS !!!! AND YES YOU CAN TAKE THAT MUCH AND LIVE ! THAT AMOUNT IS A SERIOUS ADDICTION ! I AM SO SORRY !!!!!
Maybe 3,000 mg of acetaminophen...not hydrocodone. That amount would kill any human pretty quick. 2 norcos in 4 hours is considered twice the ususal recommended dose. That's 20 mg of hydrocodone, 650 mgs of acetaminophen. It is not recommended that people take more than 2,000 mgs of tylenol a day because it can harm the liver.
