What is the situation?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Custody battle. My ex says she just takes hydrocodne prn and it doesn't effect her judgement. She showed us a rx bottle with narco 10/325 po tif #90

You can not tell from this level how much she takes, or if she exceeds her dose, if that is what you are asking.
Nor can you tell if her judgement is impaired from that measurement.
In addition, since this is in picograms, it is a relatively LOW blood level.
Beyond this , you are asking a legal question.
Yes, she takes the drug.
Was it a toxicity
OK, so that is an initial answer….
