Dubious: Kurt Angle claims he took 65 Vicodin in a day while battling addiction

Kurt Angle took "65 extra-strength Vicodin a day" in a day while battling addiction, according to Kurt Angle. The dosing for Vicodin ES 7.5 mg/300 mg is 1 tablet every 4-6 hours (Not to exceed 6 tablets).

Vicodin comes with a 'BOXED WARNING' -- HEPATOTOXICITY: ACETAMINOPHEN HAS BEEN ASSOCIATED WITH CASES OF ACUTE LIVER FAILURE, AT TIMES RESULTING IN LIVER TRANSPLANT AND DEATH. MOST OF THE CASES OF LIVER INJURY ARE ASSOCIATED WITH THE USE OF ACETAMINOPHEN AT DOSES THAT EXCEED 4000 MILLIGRAMS PER DAY, AND OFTEN INVOLVE MORE THAN ONE ACETAMINOPHEN-CONTAINING PRODUCT.

Angle's claim means he was taking 19,500 milligrams of acetaminophen.

“I was on a lot -- there was no way I couldn't get out of it,” Angle said. “The only thing I could do was eventually go to rehab and try to fix my life again. But I actually beat it on my own. I stayed in my house for about 10 days and didn't leave, and I was able to get through the withdrawal.”

Not buying it. Even if he's been charged with 4 DUIs.
