Discussions that mention vicodin

Pain Management board


Hey Enie, I understand your concerns. Like I mentioned before some meds do have limits. I'm not sure about Imitrex on the limits. I know for me that 300 mgs of Elavil would knock me out for a couple days. However, I take Percocet and OxyContin and can tolerate a high dose of that. Everyone is different.

Many times you can look the drug up and check the prescribing info and it may tell you what the maximium dose. For instance, anything with Tylenol in it (Percocet, Vicodin) has a daily limit of no more than 4000 mg of Tylenol. So this would be eight 5/500 Vicodin tablets.

I'm not sure about Elavil, but I have heard of people taking pretty big doses. Elavil is a tri-cyclic antidepressant. Many people use it to sleep due to its sedation properties.

Anyway, I hope everything works out well for your son. Take Care
