How Often Can I Take Vicodin Per Day

a single tablet of 500 at 8 am has not eased the pain. The instructions are not to take another for 6 hours. Is it safe to take it sooner? I am in severe pain still. I am scheduled for sugery to relieve chronic Sciatica but not for 3 weeks.

Answer

This is a great question for your doctor. If the prescribed medication is not working for you, you should give your doctor a call instead of taking more than prescribed.

For someone with no liver problems or other conditions that affect the liver, the maximum amount of Tylenol in a 24 hour period of time is 4000mg.
