In brief: Question cut off.

You may use the med as prescribed - sounds like 2 pills every four hours.
I suspect this was a narcotic med combined with acetaminophen. Be careful not to exceed 4000 mg of Acetaminophen daily. 650 mg of tylenol 6 times a day would generally be safe for short periods of time.
