  • What is the strength? Honestly though, even if you took 2 of the HP's (which are 10mg of hydrocodone each) you will be okay. I've taken that amount before and the HP's are the strongest (I think, unless there are 15 mg out there now). You might feel a little sick, just lie down if your head feels dizzy.

  • I agree with the PP. It might hurt your stomach, but you should be fine.

  • It all depends on the strength. When I had a toothache and my dentist rx'ed the 5/500 to where I was only supposed to take 1 every 6 hours..not so much. I was taking 2 5/500's after my c-section so it's going to depend on the strength. Sometimes doctor's prescribe just taking one pill so they don't have to dispense as many.
