    If what was published was correct and he had 200 grams of regular codeine with 1 gram = 1000 mg and the average dose being 30 mg that would equate to 6,667 pills.

    Like I said in the other thread, the maximum medical dosage for Codeine is 1 g. So he likely had 200-400 pills.

    The starting dosage for codeine is 60 mg, taken once or twice a day depending, but it scales up from there depending on tolerance and pain threshold.

    If you're addicted to painkillers it is not unusual to stock up once you are going to buy. I bet Favre had several hundred painkillers in his house when he was addicted as well.

    200grams may actually be the physical weight of the pills too, and not actually the weight of the active substance.

    I have never heard of anyone taking a gram a day but if that is what he is taking he is a serious addict. However, the average codeine pill has 30 mg like in Tylenol #3.

    Like I said in the other thread, that is BS.

    The maximum medical dosage for Codeine is 100 mg. A toxic dose of Codeine is 240 mg. The starting prescription dosage is 30 mg.

    So he likely had 6600+ (30 mg) to 2000 (100 mg) pills.

    He likely didn't have any pills, but rather liquid.
