Just had a 3 level acdf. Doctor prescribed hydrocodone 10/325 1-2 tablets q6-8 hrs as needed for for pain. Is that a safe dose no more background needed.

Just had a 3 level acdf. Doctor prescribed hydrocodone 10/325 1-2 tablets q6-8 hrs as needed for for pain. Is that a safe dose no more background needed.

Norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen): Norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) 10/325 1-2 tabs q6-8h

this prescription provides a maximum 2 pills x 4 times per day (every 6 hours equals 4 doses per day) = 8 tablets per day.

One concern is the Acetaminophen dosage (the 325 part of norco). Recent maximum daily doses of Acetaminophen has decreased to 3000 mg.

9 Norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) pils x 325 Acetaminophen = 2925 mg acetaminophen

therefore 9 Norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) has less Acetaminophen then the new maximum dose.

I usually recommend Norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) 10/325 1 tab every 4 hours, maximum daily dose of 6. This better covers the pain and maximum daily dose of 6 is recommended by rxlist. Com.

Dosage limits vary depending on your health and possible medical conditions you have. I recommend discussing your medication with your doctor. ...Read more

A immediate care doctor prescribed me “Metaxalone 8000MG tablets” for my back pain on Tuesday and my back pain hasn't changed, what should I do?

Back pain: Metaxalone, a good muscle relaxer - you have only taken if for less than 2 days, so I would give it a few more days. You should also take an anti-inflammatory like over the counter ibuprofen or naproxen. Always take with food. Avoid heavy lifting and prolonged sitting. Stretch gently daily, bringing your knees to your chest, then from one side to the other. Try a heating pad or warm wet towel. ...Read more

I need to delay my periods by 6 weeks, my doctor prescribed Premalute N 2X5mg tablets 3 times a day (6 tablests a day) for 6 weeks, is this dosage fin?

Maybe: The standard dose that I could find was one tablet 3 times a day for 10 to 14 days beginning 3 days before the period is due with bleeding to be expected about 3 days after the last pill. This is from a New Zealand government website called medsafe. It seems you want to delay your period longer and that maybe the reason for the higher dose. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Hmm...need more info: Melanocyl is a powerful photosensitizer and is generally taken or applied before receiving light therapy. Usually either the cream or the tablet is used--the cream if localized area, the tablet if larger areas will be treated. You should talk with your doctor to clarify his or her instructions on this as using it incorrectly can cause serious burns and other issues. ...Read more
