Magnacet Dosage

The usual recommended Magnacet dosage for the 2.5/400 mg tablets is one or two tablets every six hours as needed for pain. For all the other strengths, the recommended dose is one tablet every six hours as needed for pain. Higher Magnacet doses may be recommended in some cases, such as for people who have become tolerant to the drug or have severe pain.

Magnacet Dosage: An Introduction

The dose of Magnacet™ (oxycodone/APAP) that your healthcare provider recommends will vary, depending on a number of factors, including:
 
  • How you react to Magnacet
  • Other medications you are taking
  • Other medical conditions you may have.
     
As is always the case, do not adjust your dosage unless your healthcare provider specifically instructs you to do so.
 

Magnacet Dosing for Pain

The recommended dose for Magnacet 2.5/400 mg tablets is one or two tablets every six hours as needed for pain. For all the other strengths, the recommended dose is one tablet every six hours as needed for pain. In some cases (such as for severe pain or for people who have become tolerant to Magnacet), higher doses may be recommended, up to certain maximums. Refer to the following table for the maximum number of tablets per day:
 
Strength

Magnacet 2.5 mg/400 mg

Magnacet contains acetaminophen. It is very important to limit the total dose of acetaminophen to 4 grams (4000 mg) a day or less. Higher doses of acetaminophen increase the risk of serious liver damage. Make sure to watch for any other sources of acetaminophen, including other prescription pain relievers and many over-the-counter products, such as Tylenol®. To be safe, all other acetaminophen products should be avoided while you are taking Magnacet, unless you are extremely careful to limit your total acetaminophen use (from all sources added together) to 4 grams per day. The acetaminophen content of Magnacet is 400 mg per tablets (for all strengths).
