Depends: It depends on how you metabolize it. Also why are you taking it? Should have a good reason to be on an opiod. Long term no matter how often you take it.
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.

Taking it this infrequently, if appropriate for your condition, should not hurt your liver or heart.
