It usually is taken for pain, and based off weight, age, and height. Then the milligrams is based off the level of pain. The bidder the pain, the higher the dose, the less the pain the lower. So, kids will get a hold of a pill that may be too high a dose, and then instead of taking the one to two prescribed to the person its prescribed to, they pop like 3 or 4 or more, then add other drugs, drinking, driving and their young liver and heart cant handle it. THIS is how kids die. Its called overdose. A adult could die too, if they took too many, more then the prescribed, it was an overdose.

I don't understand why this is the go to drug of choice for doctors. They know how addictive it can be. Anytime someone comes in for a minor injury they prescribe these. Smh
