Vicodin 10/660 Tablets

When treating pain with Vicodin® (hydrocodone/APAP), your healthcare provider will consider several factors, such as how you respond to Vicodin, other medical conditions you may have, and other medications you are currently taking (including vitamins and herbal supplements).
For instance, if your healthcare provider prescribes 10/660 Vicodin tablets, the typical dosage is one tablet every four to six hours as needed for pain. However, the maximum dosage for this strength of Vicodin should not exceed six tablets per day. The maximum recommended Vicodin dosages are designed 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.
For the medication to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed. Do not increase your dose without your healthcare provider's approval. Do not suddenly stop taking Vicodin, especially if you have taken it regularly for more than several weeks.
Note: In 2012, Vicodin 10/650 was replaced by Vicodin 10/300 to contain less acetaminophen to comply with federal laws. Generic versions of the 10/650 strength may still be available until January 2014.
