  • There's really no set amount. It has to do with the way your body metabolizes the drug. My body metabolizes benzodiazepams far differently than my husband. If he ever took the amount that I take, he'd probably OD. His body metabolizes narcotics differently, If I took the amount that he takes, I'd probably OD. Do you get what I'm saying? BTW, I don't know why you ask this question, if you are trying to commit suicide, or if you are worried that you took one too many pain pills, but if suicide is your intention, please talk to someone.
  • It depends on your age, weight, height, & tolerance. if you take them for pain as prescribed, then it would probably take about 5 before you started getting ill. It is an opiate based pain killer so you would get sick & start vomiting severely before your body was able to absorb most of the oxycodone in there. If you have never taken them before, then 5 would probably put you in the hospital.
  • I have taken as many as 15 5mg. hydrocodone/apap at once and got off like crazy. I was an active daily opiate user at the time and about 30 years old. If you are already an opiate user, then I would imagine a number somewhere close to 20 pills. A person who is drug free will die by consuming maybe 7-10 pills or less. It depends on other factors like weight, age, sex, tolerance, last dosage, etc. Many smaller, high strung, little people are more likely to overdose than anyone else because of their dangerous personalities and fast metabolism. Be safe and never take more than three pills at once. Three pills are NOT a lethal dose under any circumstances. Hydrocodone is a wonderful drug and should be legalized for those who are COMPLETELY familiar with the drug and have great knowledge of the drug.

  • Dont listen to Gina, hydrocodone is not a benzodiazepam, it is an opiate.Benzodiazepam are xanax,valume,etc....dont offer an opinion about narcotic use if you have no idea about what you are talking about. you might get someone killed.
  • Mike,i honestly would never take more than one to two every four to six hrs. or as percribed by your doctor.I have used hydrocodone(which is vicodin)for a long time and I would not take more than two 5/500,every four to six hrs.,so that's even a lot lower than yours.I have lost some good friends to "being curious"to increasing their meds.Do not take advice from strangers though(or even friends)because everyones body is different,therefore everyones will respond differently than another.Also hydrocodone is also a respiratory depressent so it is not something you DO NOT want to drink with either.Don't throw your life away,keep your meds under control,don't go down that road:)good luck:)
  • exactly 9. period. take 9 and die.
  • I battled cancer, am unhappily married, have battled depression my whole life...Im just done.. I have about 40 vicodin, 30 xanax, clonazepam....i take it this is enough to overdose and die not become a vegetable?
