The amount of hydrocodone that is too much for your body and can cause overdose depends on whether you’ve been exposed to opioids or opiates in the past. In other words, the amount of hydrocodone that is too much for you will be higher if your body is already tolerant to hydrocodone, opiates, or opioids.

    Hydroxychloroquine is usually taken with food or milk to prevent stomach upset. The dosage and length of treatment are based on your medical condition and response to therapy. In children, dosage. The therapeutic range is reported as 10 mg/kg but a fatality in a child was reported at 27 mg/kg. 11 In adults, the therapeutic dose is 10 mg/kg, the toxic dose is 20 mg/kg, and the lethal dose is 30 mg/kg. 9 Because of the few number of hydroxychloroquine overdose cases, there is no established lethal dose or toxic dose. One cannot assume that twice the chloroquine doses would be toxic for hydroxychloroquine. Hydroxychloroquine is dispensed as 200 mg tablets, which is equivalent to 155 mg of the base. Hydroxychloroquine should be taken with a meal or a glass of milk to minimise the gastrointestinal side effects. Alternate-day dosing can be used.
