ABSTRACT
In this article, the authors discuss aspects of the issues on the maximum dosage of hydrocodone, an opioid analgesic used for treating pains. They cite a panel which has claimed that a reasonable maximum dose of opioid therapy is more than 200 mg of oral morphine daily. On the other hand, they mention that another resources list a 60 mg dosage of hydrocodone bitartrate as the highest daily dose. They note that a hydrocone bitartrate content exceeding 60 mg has been calculated in a 24-hour dose.
