Hey, i have a bottle of Vicodin 7.5-750 that is almost 2 years old. Is it still viable? Any dangers in taking hydrocodone this old? Thanks for the replies.

I should think that it would be fine as most pills take like 4 years to expire and they were probably quite fresh when they were filled, as vicodin is a pretty commonly used drug. Even if they were a little old, I dont see any real problem in taking them, except maybe for a slight decrease in effectiveness. In response to the whole APAP question, try not to exceed 1000 mg in a single dose. That is the official limit I think.

They're fine after only 2 years. The opiate in them should still be potent and as long as they don't smell like someone who's been drinking (a pharmacist I worked with long ago told me acetaminophen will have this smell when it breaks down, just as aspirin smells of vinegar.) Most medicines last longer than the listed shelf life if they're stored right. You'd actually be safe with 3 at once, but any more than that and you'll want to do a CWE first. The maximum dose for Tylenol over a 24 hour period is 4,000mg. 3 of these will put you around 2,000mg, which is high for a single dose, but if you don't do it all the time, won't mess you up.

Between 2-3000 mgs acetaminophen isn't that bad. Lots of people push it even further. I recommend you keep it below 3500 at the most. That's what I use. But I have high tolerance. I recommend you use the least amount it takes you to really feel the nod, and days between dosing to keep your tolerance low.

I recommend you do a cold water extraction.

Use the search bar on this site or in google.

Would a coffee filter work well for the extraction?
