    Do they exist? SWIMs friend says he has some, but SWIM has never heard of them.

    1000mg, well if they do exist then the 1000mg will be the acetaminophen or paracetamol, NOT the hydrocodone. The highest dose i have seen is 7.5/750, but if the 1000mg pills exist then i imagine it will be 10/1000 because it seems it a ratio of 1 part hydro to 10 parts acetaminophen.

    If they do exist then it would be a single maximum dose (of acetaminophen at least) because with acetaminophen you're not suppose to take more than 1000mg at one time and 4000mg in 24 hours not a day (12 - 14 hours or whatever). This is also true for stuff like ibuprofen, i believe the maximum dose is 600mg 4 times a day (again a 24 hour day), for over the counter, at least in the UK, it seems 400mg is the maximum dose at one time.

    I suppose it probably wouldn't hurt to take 1500mg of acetaminophen or paracetamol occasionally, and 5000mg in 24 hours would probably be OK as well, just as long as it's not for prolonged periods and is done occasionally, ie. not 7 days in a row. Never the less is some one is taking them for recreational purposes then it is better to do a Cold Water Extraction, but if it's just a therapeutic dose for legitimate pain management then always follow the instructions on the label (doctors instructions) and i suggest reading the label if one comes with it.

    In consulting my Physicians Desk Reference, 60th ed. 2006, I find that the largest Vicodin tablet to be Vicodin HP which is 10mg Hydrocodone/660mg Acetaminophen and is manufactured by Abbott. There are also generics & other Hydrocodone containing preparations, however in my understanding none have a higher milligram dosage than 10mg Hydro and all contain a varying amount of Acetaminophen, Ibuprofen, etc.

    I would also urge swiy & swiyourfriend to heed Solinari's cautions about the dangers of acetaminophen, especially if either of swiyoutwo consume alcohol. Even better, do some quick research on acetaminophen & hepatic function to get an idea of where we're coming from with these warnings.

    No such thing as 1000mg of hydrocodone unless it is a nurse giving you a lethal IV in a hospital for grabbin her ass . . . :)

    But seriously, 1000mg of Hydrocodone would not even be able to be taken.
    As another mentioned, the standard high tabs are only 7.5mg, lets say that someone takes like 4x that for recreational, thats only 30mg. And 30mg of Hydrocodone would have most people pretty damn wasted. SWIMs own tolerance is high and he could handle a much larger dosage but still NOWHERE NEAR 1000mg (thats one whole gram SWIyou realize) SWIMs maximum dosage on this would be about 1/5th of that at the most (200mg) because from what SWIM remembers Hydrocodone is slightly less potent than Oxycodone and he used up to 160mg at a time recreationally of Oxycodone.

    SWIM has EXTREME opiate tolerance and even this amount was borderline for him. SWIM had no problem smashing up to half a gram of H into his arm, 160mg of Oxycodone was around about the same feeling.
    [note: half a gram of Street heroin is not 500mg of diacetylmorphine, in fact it would probably be lucky to be about a third of that considering how much junk is jumped on when and each time it changes hands. Independent studies have shown that an average of 30% pureness is found in street heroin. This does vary of course, usually anywhere from 50% to 20%, but when the "war on terrorism" started it was a lot more than just soldiers and middle eastern people whom were dying. SWIM lost A LOT of friends during this time because the purity of the Heroin went through the roof]

    Ones guess is that SWIyour friend read the packet wrong and is quoting the acetaminophen content rather than the Hydrocodone content because there is just NO SUCH THING as a 1000mg Hydrocodone tab. Especially in the states.

    For more information please read here >>>>> HYDROCODONE

    HOPE THIS HAS BEEN OF HELP :)

    Yes its probably 10/XXX amount of apap. Swim hears many inexperienced people call vicodin 7.5/750s as just 750's, So people assume the 10mg are 1000mg, You would be surprised how many young kids out there that don't even know that vicodin has apap in it, let alone that its toxic to the liver

    ya hes talking about the apap content. I've tried explaining the mg of opiates in vicodin or norcos to opiate naive people forever and they dont want to know the details they want to assume the bigger the pill the stronger.

    Well that IS true to a point, the more APAP content usually means a higher dosage of the opiate in question. Though the high number is most definitely not pertaining to the mg of the opiate itself.

    1000mg do not exsist. Swim dreams of the probability of such a dosage. One tablet would give swim about 10 good highs. 5, 7.5, and 10mg tablets are used in US but swim has never seen any of these containing 1000mg of acetaminophen. That is a very high dose of tylenol and one believes that 7000mg is very close to leathal.

    And yes OhCasey. norco does contain 325mg of apap but is the only hydrocodone formulated medicine containing such a low dosage of apap. Swim perfers these above anyother. Brings back memories of broken legs. jaws, etc, etc.

    peace

    Watson makes 10/325 7.5/325 and 5/325. they also make 2.5/500 7.5/750 5/750/10/660. Xodol's contain 10/300. Qualitest Pharmaceuticals makes 10/325 5/325 7.5/325 Hydrocodone. even abbott's highest apap content vicodin is 7.5/750 but they make a 10/660 as there strongest vicodin opiate wise. So there is no correlation between the apap and opiate content sammy so when you said "Well that IS true to a point, the more APAP content usually means a higher dosage of the opiate in question. Though the high number is most definitely not pertaining to the mg of the opiate itself" you were just plain wrong. Me stalking you? youre the one who replied to my post with make believe.

    Most common Vicodin/Hydrocodone sizes are:
    5/500 (the 500 being acetaminiphin and the 5 being 5mg of hyrocodone)
    5/325
    10/325 (called Norco)
    10/660
    2.5/200
    7.5/750
    7/350

    SWIM can see the sig on the label now
    "take 1/100th of a tablet twice daily for pain"

    When SWIM used to work in a pharmacy SWIM remember seeing 10mg being the highest we carried. SWIM think after that, they generally put people on stronger pain management regimines.

    Another interesting thing was that without the APAP hydrocodone becomes a schedule II drug rather than a schedule III. Or is it schedule II all the time? It's been a while, and SWIM has no plans to go back : )

    Anyways, the best way to determine what a pharm pill is, is to google the pill ID. There is a very good reason pills have unique identification marks on them, use them.

    In the U.S., pure hydrocodone and forms containing more than 15 mg per dosage unit are considered Schedule II drugs. Those containing less than or equal to 15 mg per dosage unit in combination with acetaminophen or another non-controlled drug are called hydrocodone compounds and are considered Schedule III drugs.
