I wouldn't. First off, you are going to be more prone to injury. Secondly the added blood floww will exacerbate the problems in your mouth and metabolize the pain meds quicker, thus making the pain worse and the medication less effective.

No freaking way you are taking 500mg of codeine and still typing in this thread...or breathing for that matter. But, Aarons advice is excellent.

That is what I was thinking. It's been quite some time since I had my Tylenol Codeine but it has only has 60mg in it. It says on the pamphlet I am reading at the moment that 360mg is max for 24 hours.

Now... I was prescribed sixty tabs of Percocet for my achilles rupture. Damn, two of those tabs and I was out for 8 hours. Still have quite a few of those tabs!

More than likely he is taking Tylenol with codeine and the tylenol portion is 500mg. I was just busting on him for his error.
