Hi Ryan,

Generally with this type of drug the dosing instructions indicate that you should take 1 pill every 4-6 hours or so. I could be wrong, but I think this is mainly due to the concerns associated with Acetaminophen and liver toxicity.

From my own personal experience, it should be fine to take a half a pill more, as they do make a stronger norco with 10mgs of Hydrocodone and 500mgs of Acetaminophen. So it would be as if you're taking the stronger version of the drug.

I hope this helps!

Actually, if the pain is still that bad, after having had the tooth extracted, then something is wrong and you need to be seen by the dentist, again.

Once the tooth is removed, the pain shouldn't be so severe. There may be a piece of tooth or root in there that was not fully removed and may require more attention and, if that is the case, then no amount of medication is going to help.


Learn more Norco details here.

What type of pain are you feeling?

An extracted tooth should be achy for the first 24 hours or so, then only mildly achy after that, unless you put pressure on the area.

I don't think it would hurt you. I can barley take anything, almost everything makes me sick. But they have recently taken vicodin off the market they are subing it for Norco at 325mg. It's all about the acetaminopen. They can't do 500mg of it any more. Now when I was taking vicodin I took 7.5/ 500mg. 1 was ok for a little bit and now that I'm on Norco I have to take 2-3 tabs and I'm still not out of pain. So for a whoss like me that can't take much it's not hurting me as far as making me sick but it's not helping my pain either. Why didn't your Dentist give you script of tylenol# 3 or 4? Thats what they gave my husband and it got him out of pain.I think they are stronger but I don't know I'm allergic to codene.

650mg of APAP is well within safe limits. They sell 800mg varieties of APAP alone. My concern is more... why you would be in that much pain after the tooth, and theoretically, its nerve are both gone. You may be experiencing "dry socket," which can occur especially if you smoke after an extraction. That should definitely be attended to by your dentist and quickly.
