Ok, This tylenol-cod #4 is not very strong...I take Ibuprophen 800 mg for fibromyalgia/arthritis..Waiting for the Docs to figure that one out?? Anyway, the Doc said only one every 6 hrs....HAH...was like taking baby aspirin for a broken leg....Should I take two just to see if It could work doubled or just get a stronger Med.??

Interestingly enough, the dosing instructions for Tylenol-Codeine #4 state the following:

"Take exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Do not take more of this medication than is recommended. An overdose of acetaminophen can damage your liver or cause death. Tell your doctor if the medicine seems to stop working as well in relieving your pain."

Lately there have been a lot of concerns about liver toxicity upon taking too much acetaminophen. Apparently one acetaminophen and codeine #4 tablet may contain up to 650 mg of acetaminophen; which is a pretty high dose in and of itself. So taking two or more pills is not something I'd recommend.

It may just be that you require a different medication altogether that gets the job done.

Have you tried Vicodin or any sort of narcotic pain reliever?

Well, I was having a very bad reaction to Gabapentin... I think? Became apparent when after not being able to stand on my right foot. Just thought it was from standing too much but then later it wasmy other foot
and then Ithe next day I tried to get out of bed and both feet, ankles and hands and feet were completely swollen....As I slowly went downstairs I noticed my whole body hurt terribly...That day was awfull and that night I decided to call the Pharmacist who wasn't much help..My Asthma was worse, my nose dripping, pain from the Shingles was rediculous.I was chilled to the bone and felt like I was dieing(abit melodramatic) I stoppidthe Gabapentin since that was the only Med. that showed that side affect..That night and yest I had the most disgusting gas and diarea....OMG,just awful!!!!
Obviously my body was ridding itself of this medication..
God I wish this Doc wasn't so anti-narcotic...The Tylenol4 still isn't doing much and I'm taking Benadryl myself for the itching. Still taking the acitrvil. So prob. with that....I have only had pain medication for the first time this year....I had to surgically removed molars and was given Vicoprofen...Worked great and no side affects...And no prob. when I took them 3X a day.
My Doc asked me why I keep asking for Vicoprofen. I told her it's the only thing I know I have so side affects from except a little itching but I jusy take a Benadryl with it like the Pharmacist sayed too...Oh Well..I see the Doc. again tom...We'll see what happens..Not looking for any miracles that's for sure...Must be Karma..ha-ha..S.A.M.
