    How many milligrams of acetaminophen and how much codeine in these pills? And i know you can safely take up to 1000 mg of APAP but no more than that....but what is the maximum amount of milligrams of codeine you can safely take?

    ^^^ Its different for everyone. If sum1 has a high tolerance to opiates 150-200mgs is no problem and actually kinda low for a good feeling. But if there is no tolerance to opiates whatsoever that a different story, would start with 50mgs. better to be safe than sorry, swiy can always take more, but cant untake anything lol so tell swit to be careful no matter what he/she/it does! -VB

    and oh yeah - most tylenol 3's contain 300 mg of apap

    No offence but this a very basic information SWIY could have found with a simple google search.

    SWIVB is pretty spot on when it comes to usual dosage/first time dosage. IMO if SWIY has taken codiene before and knows hes not allergic to it etc 120mg should be a nice buzz for a newbie. If SWIM's not been near codiene for a few days 120mg will put a smile on his face, any more than 180mg and he feels too sick to enjoy it.

    To answer OP's actual question, it is considered that 800mg of Codiene is a fatal dosage.

    SWIM suggests SWIY uses cold water extraction to remove the APAP. Taking 1200mg of APAP i.e 4 tablets IF they contain 300mg each will not kill SWIY as a one off but its not advisable to do it regularly. CWE of codiene discussions can be found Here

    that cwe is crazy didn't know it was possible....never mind i found it...300 mg apap and 30 mg codeine.....so i could take 3 of those pills and would b fine right?

    wildcat_fan08 added 1 Minutes and 30 Seconds later...

    yea my bad i just googled it and found it......somebody can delete this thread now i guess it was pretty pointless...thanks tho space numpty...but 3 tylenol 3's are cool to take right...just 90 mg codeine and u say 800 mg is a fatal dose.

    wildcat_fan08 added 3 Minutes and 25 Seconds later...

    nevermind once again.....i found that 240 mg of codeine can be a toxic dose...just like 1000 mg of apap is a toxic dose

    Yes dude, 3 would be fine to take being 900mg Acetaminophen/90mg Codiene. Dont expect a massive hit tho. CWE is as easy as robbing a cripple, or so SWIM hears ;), so give it a try.

    Peace.

    ^^^ good job, yes cwe is almost essential if someone wants to use tylenol 3's recreationally w/o rockin their liver! And it IS easy, if SWIyou can mix A and B and filter through a piece of fabric or coffee filter or swiys choice, swiy can do a cwe! good luck op!

    Well the 240mg Codiene comments are pretty subjective. Remember that a toxic dose of a lot of substances is anything above 0mg as they are by their very nature toxic. SWIM think alcohol applies to this rules for example.Codiene like all opiates/opiods have a tendancy for tolerance too. A hardhead will take a lot more than 240mg with no serious negative effect.

    Unless one is allegic to Codiene 240mg isnt going to do anything bad other than maybe make them puke. Just bear in mind is all, a "toxic dose" doesnt mean it does you any harm, short term or long term.
