Vicodin Pain Medication - What is days supply?

My doctor prescribed me Vicodin for pain. How many days supply would a pharmacy tech enter for my prescription? The RX was for 48 hydrocodone/apap pills and the directions were one tablet every 4-6 hrs. Thanks for your help, I really appreciate it! You have an awesome website!

90 pills, at 1 tab every 4 hours (which is 6/day) equals a 15 day supply.

6 tablets per day. Then you divide the daily pills taken into the quantity. So, just divide 6 into 90 and you get 15.

Thank you Anonymously, for your question!

48 Tabs, 1 tab po q4-6h = 8 Days Supply

Thank you for your question, and your compliments about this website!

To figure out the days supply in your question, we take the total amount of pills: 48 and divide it by the maximum amount of pills that can be taken per day. The maximum amount of pills taken each day would be every 4 hours (divide 24 hours by 4) = max 6 pills daily.

Now we divide 48 by 6... and VIOLA! we have an answer of 8 for our days supply.
