Dosage: 4 x 325 mg-10 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I don't recommend regular use of this medication. It is highly addictive and only moderately efficacious in relieving pain. I learned this the hard way, as I had a doctor who hated seeing me in pain and she encouraged me to take up to 4 a day. Back in 200- 2005 I often took 2-3 a day, for up to 3 days in a row, more when I was in bad shape, until I noticed how stopping taking it seemed to exponentially increase my pain. These days I take it VERY rarely. I can't remember the last time I took more than 3 in one week and usually I go weeks between needing any at all.
