hydrocodone every 2 hours
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. This is 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. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

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? ...

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.

can you take oxycodone 7 5 325 every 2 hours
Can you take Percocet 5/325 one every two hours rather than two every four hours so the pain relief stays consistent? Had surgery two days ago. ## Hello, Joesphine! How are you? I don't see why there should be a problem, but you should double check with your doctor or pharmacist to be certain. This is 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. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Hey Joe, hope u r feeling better. Be careful on the Tylenol in that. It's 325mg per pill & u cannot exceed 4000 mg in a 24 hour period.

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... ...

I Have A Herniated Disc At L5s1 And Am Taking 8mg Dilaudid 1every 2 To Three Hours As Neede For Pain First It Was Working Well Now Doesnt Last
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. As was already mentioned, it's called Opana ER. Does anyone else have any ideas to add? ##... ...

prednisone 20mg two every day
My bottle just says take two by mouth every day does this mean I take them both together at once or twice a day? ## Hi Ashley, Usually when dosing instructions note that you should take two pills daily, it is either referring to 1 pill every twelve hours or both pills in one sitting. I'm surprised that it doesn't actually clarify this on the packaging label though. In either case, from what I've researched, most of the dosing guidelines for Prednisone are "1 pill orally every 12 hours", depending on what condition you're using it for. I would however recommend confirming this with your doctor, since every case is different. You can learn more about this drug on the page for Prednisone Details I hope this info helps! ...

I started the fentanyl patch 100 today after 3 years of OxyContin, the last dose of Oxy was 80OP 4 times per 24 hours. How does the patch fair?
Hello, friends! I started the Fentanyl patch 100mc today after OxyContin treatment my highest dose was 80OP up to 4 per 24 hours. I suffer from agonizing chronic pain due to severe nerve damage in my feet (medical neglect and misdiagnosed 3 years ago). I've build up opioid tolerance pretty quickly, so my doctor suggested the Fentanyl patches, plus, I felt "victimized by the system" - all and everyone plays the "Cops", lecturing me about the risks of opioids, treating me like a "junkie". Nothing against those that use these meds recreationally, but because of those very people, I will convulse in ER, and the attending doctor will insist on reaching my neurologist first before administering the pain relief... Finally, my doctor suggested these patches - I am MO... ...

10 years of every narcotic pain med under the sun I think
After a long career as a Firefighter and suffering through various injuries on the job I think I have tried a lot of different meds. A quick health history. Separated shoulder, broken ribs, surgery on both knees and back( L4-L5, S1). My narcotic history in order was Tylenol 3 and 4. Percocet, OxyContin up to 120mg a day, statex ,MS Contin, Dilauded, Butrans and finally now on Fentanyl 100 MCG every 48 hours I'm worried I have hit my narcotic wall and I'm worried that if any other more painful health issues come up I won't be able to get proper pain relief. Any experiences or medical opinion would be appreciated ...

dont take the pill at the same hour everyday
I have never missed a pill, however I don't always take the pill at the same exact hour, sometimes 1-5 hour difference. My boy friend and I are very active. And I started spotting yesterday but it is way too early for my period, I just had my period about 2 weeks ago. Should I take a pregnancy test, and when should I take it to be accurate? ## If there has only been a few hour difference, then you should be fine and shouldn't have to worry about pregnancy risk. The is only a worry if you actually miss tablets and take them more than 24 hours late, or not at all. But, the time fluctuation could upset your hormone levels enough to cause the breakthrough bleeding. You should consult your doctor to be sure, but it's most likely that this is just normal and you should try to take... ...
