Take 1 Tablet every 6 hours for pain. How many is this a day? 3 or 4 ## Hello, Judy! How are you? That would be 4, as defined by the FDA, from what you've listed. However, if it is a prescription that says to take it as needed, then your doctor may not be expecting you to need 3 or 4 of them every day. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

I get a bit confused I was taking norco 7.5/325 every 8 hours and now taking oxymorphone HCL ER 15mg every 12 hours. should I take them at like 8 am.8pm and then the same the next day? to keep it on even times? They way I can mark it off on my appt. book. ## She told me only 2 per day, and that was it! ## I had a stroke and memory loss, and I just wanted to make sure I could keep myself on a schedule. ## Hello, Sam! How are you doing? Yes, that's fine and the best way to take them. The FDA classifies this medication as a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation.

Just had surgery for a hernia. I was prescribed Norco 5/325, take 2 every four hours. Can I take 1 every 2 hours so I don't get that "Narcotic" feeling? ## Hello, Scott! How are you? Yes, you should be able to do that, but you should double check with your doctor to be sure.

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's possible that it was just meant to refer to why you are supposed to take it, some doctors do that, when they write prescriptions. 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? ...

My new doctor gave me 3 weeks to get off zopiclone now she wants me off tramadol how long would this take? And is there something i can take that is similar but not addictive. She also wants me off methocarbanal 1,500 mg every 4 hours. Please answer i am scared stiff to come off all of these meds quickly. X ## Hello, Gina! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem you're having. How long have you been taking the Tramadol and how soon does she want you to stop it? The FDA does classifies it as an opioid, so it can be habit forming, which means a slow taper is usually best to prevent the worst of the possible withdrawal symptoms. They are listed as typically including nausea, dizziness, fever, chills, rebound pain and diarrhea. Unfortunately, there's really nothing similar that... ...

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... ...

can you take oxycodone 10 325 every 4 hours
1 Reply RSS
I took a percocet 10-325 at 9 pm it's now 12:45 am and was wondering if I had to wait full 6 hours or can I take another ## Hello, Crystal! How are you? The Oxycodone in Percocet can be habit forming and, if you take it more frequently than as prescribed, you also run the risk of overdose, especially due to the Acetaminophen in it. Thus, it would be best to not change your dosing frequency, without your doctor's approval. The FDA classifies this medication as a narcotic that may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

So I'm not to good at swallowing pills and my doctor prescribed me amoxicillin for my double ear infection. I was wondering if when it says by mouth if it means I have to swallow it whole or if I can chew it up cause it doesn't say on the prescription. ## Hello, Connor! How are you? They aren't time released, so you could chew them, but it's going to taste horrible.

Is it is better to take hydrocone 10 325 without food? ## Hello, Daniel! How are you? The usual dosing is every 4 to 6 hours, as needed for pain, but you should follow the instructions that were provided with your prescription. It can be taken with or without food, but taking it on an empty stomach may cause you to experience more nausea and dizziness than usual. The FDA classifies this medication as a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause other side effects, such as drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation.

I was prescribed 30 percocet and was told to take 1 tablet every 4-6 hours as needed...how many days is that suppose to last if i am taking them every 5 hours for pain? ## Hello, Jona! How are you? How many days supply does your pharmacy list it as being? The issue here is that it's an 'as needed' prescription and not a strict dosing schedule, so apparently your doctor thinks you'll only need to take one occasionally, so they may expect it to last a few weeks, or as long as a month. The FDA classifies this medication as a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. When is your next appointment? ...

Antibiotics - it said 1 every 8 hours
1 Reply RSS
Unfortunately I took the first dose at 12:30-1pm so I'm confused on the time set up. Would it be 12:30, 8:30 and 4:30 am? The 4:30 am seems impossible to remember, then I would assume to just take the 8:30 then in the morning, do more breakfast lunch dinner type thing. Say I started antibiotics but then slept with my partner again - Did it just defeat the purpose for us both after taking the first pill.. ## If the doctor has instructed you to take one every 8 hours, then it is very important that you do so, even if it means setting an alarm to wake up and do it. For eradicating some bacteria, the antibiotics must be kept in your body at a constant level. And yes, if this involves some type of STI, you should not engage each other, until it has been cleared up in both of you. The FDA... ...

I shattered my ankle and broke and shattered my tibia. I had surgery about 3 weeks ago. Sometimes during the day my pain is worse and the pain starts to rage about an hour and a half to 2 hours later. In those instances would it be safe to take one more Percocet? It is not all the time. My doctor did say I could take 2 tablets every 4 hours but I don't feel like I need that much and I'm a little scared to take 2 at one time. ## Hello, Morgan! How are you? I'm sorry that you're in so much pain. You can take it that way, as long as your doctor approves. However, you may want to try taking two at once, since it won't be much different from taking another a couple hours later, but it may prevent that severe pain from setting in. The FDA classifies this medication as a na... ...

I have melanoma cancer and a horrific case of shingles. I have been prescribed oxycodone 10/325 1 every four hours. In addition I am treated at the spine and pain center for spinal stenous and osteoporosis. I need to try same dosage every three hours to control my pain because I really struggle that fourth hour with lots of pain. Would that cause a problem? I am male in my middle 70's. ## It would be best not to adjust your dosage, without your doctor's approval. It could create the risk of overdose and/or you may run out early, which may make your doctor think you have an addiction problem, so they might stop prescribing. The FDA classifies this medication as a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness,... ...

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.
