I suggest you call the Poison Control Center at for an assessment of overdose risk or with help on what to do next. The most dangerous complication of hydrocodone overdose is slow or shallow breathing. I took hydrocodone for 6 years as you know. The body slowly shuts down, stops breathing or the heart stops beating. We are here to help you if you have any problem with addiction.
He had a terminal diagnosis of cirrhosis of the liver again after having had a liver transplant six years ago. Can anyone explain how one small dose in hospital post surgery could cause respiratory and cardiac arrest?
Start back from the hour of your last dose and count back 24 hours, now multiply times how many pills you took in that 24 hour period…if your number comes up higher then then slow the f—k down.
He was a retired police officer and has 1 adult son. DAN your information is incorrect. These effects seem to be more prominent in ambulatory than in non-ambulatory patients, and some of these adverse reactions may be alleviated if the patient lies down.
I believe that I was throwing up blood because of the irritation in my stomach, is that correct? I took over 10 times the max dose of hydrocodone once plus more than 6 grams of acetaminophen and went to sleep and I was fine the next day.
She took them pills exactly as prescribed. Thanks for sharing, Chris. My son died from an overdose of Fentinel ,but his autopsy report states that he used it 4 to 8 hours before his death ,he was working outdoors and was a very hot day and when he came home ,he complained that his face was hot and he had a bad headache,does it take that long to react ,because i thought it would react right away.
Is this too many at once? How many do you think it would take to help her pass without pain if I make a powder and inject the mixture. I have seen a lot of these doctors in 30yrs,Even though,I may have stomach cancer and go back tomorrow,I think its crazy.
I was prescribed 7.
My doctor says to take two at a time but i never do because a single pill usually does the trick. I thank you for your honesty and am sorry if I put you on the spotlight, my intention was solely to correct inaccurate information and to actually get to know if hydrocodone had more of a respiratory depressing quality as most other opioids as it does vary from one to another, which I'm sure you know.
My breathing is still shallow. Is that combination dangerous? Will i be okay since its been 4 hrs? The lack of oxygen reaching your brain due to depressed breathing can cause permanent brain damage. Add to My Bibliography. I want to take this pill either way. You cannot upload an image here.
The intensity of the syndrome does not always correlate with the duration of maternal opioid use or dose.
