360oz Hydrocodone Acetaminophen Liquid (7.5-325mg/15ml)


My daughter is 12 and her weight is 160lbs and she had surgery and they gave her 360oz of hydrocodone - acetaminophen 7.5-325mg/15mL and she takes 10mL every 4 hours. How long should this bottle of meds last?

Hi Kayla - Can you please double check the total size of the bottle? 360 oz doesn't seem possible for a prescription since that equals over 10,000 ml. Do you mean to say 360 ml?

I'm going to assume for a moment that the OP meant 36 oz of liquid since that equals about 1065 ml. That being the case, taking a dose every 4 hours equals 6 doses per day. BUT ... I will also assume only 5 doses per day since the patient is probably sleeping longer than 4 hours, and taking 5 doses per day at 4 hour intervals equals 16 hours of wake time. So ... 50 ml per day of liquid.

1065 ml total / 50 ml per day = approx. 21 days for the prescription to last.

HOWEVER, if Roy's assumption of a 360 ml bottle is correct, then 360 ml total / 50 ml per day = approx. 7 days for the whole prescription. I am inclined to believe this to be the case, but I am not sure what the patient had surgery for and how long the pain medication is intended to last.

@Kayla please look again on the prescription packaging to see what the exact total amount is for the whole bottle. I'd be interested to know for sure!

The qty of 360 refers to ml not ounces. Each dose is 15ml, so you have 24 doses.

Hi Kayla:

Would you please do me a favor? Would you check the correct bottle size of this medication. This can't be right. As soon as you do that then I can help you. Have a great day. Wishing your daughter the best.
