Xodol Dosage

Different factors will affect the Xodol dosage that you are prescribed. For example, if you have taken a narcotic before, you may need a higher dose. People with liver disease typically need a lower Xodol dose. Your healthcare provider's Xodol dosing guidelines should be followed carefully in order to avoid serious drug interactions or potentially fatal complications.

Xodol Dosage: An Introduction

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

Xodol Dosing for Pain

Typically, most hydrocodone/APAP products are taken every four to six hours as needed for pain, although the specific dosage your healthcare provider recommends may vary, depending on the specific strength of the product, as well as other factors. Your healthcare provider will recommend a specific dosage for Xodol based on several factors. If your body is used to taking narcotic medications, you will be able to handle more Xodol than someone who does not regularly take narcotics. If you have liver or kidney disease, you may need a lower Xodol dosage.
 
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 Xodol, 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 Xodol is 300 mg per tablet. Taking more than 4 grams (4000 mg) of acetaminophen per day can cause liver damage, which can result in liver failure and death.
