3 Days Supply
by: David

The maximum you are prescribed each day is 12 tablets (2 tablets every 4 hours, which is 6 times daily... 2x6=12).

12x325mg (acetaminophen) = 3900mg each day at the maximum daily dosage. The maximum daily recommendation for Tylenol is 4,000mg. So you shouldn’t take more than 12 tabs of the Percocet.

40 divided by 12 = 3.33. We round down in days supply questions because we don’t have enough pills / quantity to make another full day.

40 tablets of the generic Percocet is a 3 day supply. Thank you for the question, Sharon!
