: My friend is taking Lortabs, up to 30 mg. Is this too much??? I was worried about him overdosing and I dont know what the safe amount is?
: Thanks

It's not the HYdrocodone that will get him its the amount of tylonol. more than 1000mgs of tylonol in a dose or more than 4000mgs can cause permanant liver damage or possiably death. Poeple develop tolerance to opiates and I doubt if he started at that dose. It's unlikely that the narcotics will harm him. It sounds like he's taking enough to cause withdrawal if he stops quickly. If everything has been done to help control the pain the best course would be to swich to a long acting narcotic that contains no aspiran or tylonol. What is the cause of his pain and what has been done to treat it. Good luck David
