I am so very sorry for your loss.

There's no specific range that can be given to answer your question. It depends on the person, their age, weight, overall health and their tolerance to narcotics.

Some people can take quite a lot and not have a problem, while other may overdose at much lower doses.

The FDA classifies these medications as narcotic opiates, so there is a risk of them being habit forming and abused. Their typical side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache, constipation and dry mouth.

Did he have any medical conditions?
