Acetaminophen Vi codanRegarding the ? of equigesic aspects your question poses qualities which raise "Red Flags" to me.As Vicodin is indicated for : mod-sev pain of non-neurological etiology and Acetaminophen is a med used for mild-mod pain not caused by an inflammatory condition and also as an antipyretic med(lowers fever); The two drugs act quite differently. The answer to your ? is: 3-8 grams.This equals 6-16 tabs. The difficulty your ? poses in an ethical sense is that the L.D 50(the lethal dose of Tylenol which would prove fatal to 50% of users)is 9.5 Grams. The reason I'd advise against using large doses of Tylenol is ,Too much will cause liver necrosis.The risks far outweigh the benefits in this case. The tone of your ? indicates to me that you're wishing to control mod-sev pain with massive amounts of Extra-Strength Tylenol as you may not be able to access or use Vicodin.Needing as much as 8 gs' is dangerously close to the lethal o.d. value of 9.5gs'. I am a Paramedic,not a physician,but I must tell you that the amount of Tylenol you would have to take would exceed current safety guidelines and my advice is to save your Liver.Acute Acetaminophen o.d.s' are fatal due to hepatic(liver) failure due to acetaminophens' being converted by the cytochrome P450 System to a toxic metabolite that is subsequently conjugated with glutathione and excreted by the kidneys.However,when glutathione is depleted following a high dose of acetaminophen,the toxic metabolite accumulates and is thought to be the cause of acetaminophen=induced liver necrosis.

How many 500mg Tylenol pills would equal the relief of one Tylenol 3?

To equal the Tylenol level would be one 500mg Tylenol, however, 3's have codiene in them and no matter how many tylenols you take, it will not give you the effect of an opiate. If you take too many it will shut down your liver and left unattended you will die a slow and agonizing death.

How many Tylenol 3's are equal to 2 vicodin?


How many Tylenol 3' equal one vicodin?

Actually, Tylenol 3 and Vicodin each contain a different type of painkiller so it would be difficult to try and compare them to each other. Tylenol 3 has codeine in it and Vicodin contains a synthetic opiate called hydrocodone. Vicodin by its nature is a stronger pain medicine than codeine. but it would be difficult to try and figure out how many Tylenol 3s equal a Vicodin. Considering the way that physicians prescribe these medications, both of them would require a very similar amount, and the same goes for how often they should be taken - prescribing directions usually state that the patient take one or two tablet every four hours. Now, as far as the codeine goes in the Tylenol medications, if you want to know how many Tylenol 3s would be equal to a Tylenol 4, that would be two. Same goes for Tylenol 1 and Tylenol 2. It would take two Tylenol 1s to equal one Tylenol 2, and two Tylenol 2s would equal one Tylenol 3. I'm not sure how the other ingredients in these medications compare to each other. JT
