Take 1 Tablet P Eye Every 12 Hours?
what does p eye mean? this is an antibiotic ## I have never seen that on a prescription before. Was it for some type of infection related to the eye?

It is also possible that your doctor wrote something else and the pharmacy had trouble reading it and thought that's what it said. Which antibiotic are you taking? ...

Is Taking 10 325 Percocet Every 4 Hours O K
My Dr, has me taking percocet every 4 hours it doens't help that much I have arthritis had 2 hip replacements but still have so much pain. I see my Dr. next week just wanted a second opinion. Thank you kindly. Jeanne ## This tablet contains 10mgs of Oxycodone and 325mgs of Acetaminophen and if you're taking them every 4 hours, then you are taking 60mgs of the Oxycodone and 1,950 of the Acetaminophen in a day, which isn't necessarily a dangerous dosage of either one. What you really have to watch for is the effects it has on you and if it seems to be too much for you. Monitor your side effects, which may include: nausea, dizziness, constipation and drowsiness and if they are very severe, then you'll know if this amount is too much for you to take. Are there any other ques... ...

Is 60mg of morphine every 4 hours alot?
My Grandma is in pain and on her death bed. Her docter gave her 60mgs of morphine every 4 hours and she only ways 90lbs ## How is she doing? I am very sorry that she is in this condition. What you need to know is that it has been proven that high levels of narcotics to alleviate pain do not hasten end of life. Numerous studies have been done and there was no deterioration of anyone's condition under such circumstances due to the high levels of pain medications. Thus, it has been decided among the medical community that it is better to administer them to allow someone to be comfortable, than to let them spend their final days in misery.

Metoprolol Succ Er 25 Mg Once A Day Or Tartr Half Tablet Every 12 Hours
I am taking metoprolol succ er 25 mg once a day. My insurance co. doesn't cover these pills. I am cosidering taking metoprolol tartr 25 mg instead ( 1/2 a pill every 12 hours ). Would that be equivelant? And is that a good idea?>>>>Howard ## Yes, it would pretty much work the same. I had to do the same thing with some of my blood pressure medications. I have no insurance and there is no generic of the time released ones, so I go the regular, which is on the $4 prescription plan and just take it twice a day. However, this may not work well for everyone, so you'll need to try it, for about a month, and monitor your condition, to see if it's working for you. To be honest, the reason most doctors will prescribe something that is time released or a larger dose to ... ...

Oxazepam 15mg @4 hours daily (4 to 6 a day)
My Rheumatologist says that it is unnecessary to withdraw from Oxazepam 15mg. (see above Topic for dosage) and merely substitute with a lesser dosage of Difucan (10mg. @ 4-6 hours daily) as they are "the same drug"! I have been taking this Oxazepam dosage for 25 years+. Now I am following his instructions and having major withdrawal miserable symptoms. Any suggestions? ## There is no medication called Difucan, the closest is Diflucan and, if that's what you have, then I don't think you're taking the right medication, because it is an antifungal medication. Learn more Diflucan details here. I think you may want to double check everything, because the medication she intended to prescribe for you may have been Diazepam, which would be an equivalent medication. Learn mor... ...

need info on 8mg dilaudid and what might be a good medication for breakthrough pain while taking this med every 2 hours. please help. ive been on oxycontin & roxycodone and cant find them anymore thats why i changed to dilaudid. please help. ## Opana Ir Or Er im sure an Opana 40 Er would would cover your pain if not try Morphine, I prefer morphone. Hydro-morphone= dilaudid. Oxy-morphone=Opana. I say Opana is ATLEAST equal to an Oc 80. Fentayln patches also work great as well as liquid Morphine Sulfate. Mainly for Iv but can be ingested. ## YEs, if you're on the regular release formulation, you may want to ask your doctor about using the time release formulation for longer pain control.

Does 100 mg morphine sulfate extended release pill taken every twelve hours (2 per day) equal 100 mcg. Fentanyl patch applied every 48 hrs.?
My question concerns drug conversion. The Fentanyl works well, most of time, for my chronic pain, but my insurance now says I can only get it again in March of 2015. This is still Oct., 2014, so I will be out of patches at end of October. I don't understand this, because just stopping the patches would/will cause terrible withdrawal, because if you are only couple days late, withdrawal starts. This happened also recently as my dr. changed (at my request to try something else)100 mcg. patch to only 15 mg. of morphine ER every 12 hours, because of patches costing almost $400 for one month, which I cannot afford, due to "doughnut hole". The change made be very sick within two days, so I had to go back to patches. I didn't think the 15 mg. extended release morphine was enoug... ...
