Avatar f tn Recommendation for missed PI dose is if within 4 hrs of normal dosing time to go ahead and take it and return to normal dosing schedule if more than 4 hrs skip it and return to normal dosing schedule
620048 tn?1358018235 t think I am blaming YOU for the poor dosing schedule you have been given! We need to learn as we go but the docs are supposed to pay attention or employ others to do it for them. I'm sorry your trust was violated by some combo of doctors who let you down. Sadly, when you call about a new prescription you may also need to request some blood work be ordered to check on your liver function.
707563 tn?1626361905 Hi everyone - We've had to delete quite a few posts lately about tapering. While it's ok to talk about it, we can't not allow people to give tapering schedules, dosing info, etc., as only a doctor can do that. Please read the top 2 posts in this forum for posting guidelines. Thanks for understanding.

Avatar f tn It helped me to start by taking a half pill a day so I would still be taking the same dosing schedule but with less overall pill intake, hope that makes sense. The taper does lessen the detox when it does come. For me anxiety was a HUGE issue, and I did get some help from my Dr. to calm my nerves which made the transition smoother. It's hard to give specific advice because everyone is different. What worked for me might not work for you. Good Luck, YOU CAN DO IT. Post if you need any help.
Avatar m tn My doctor suggested monitoring for the first 24 hours after my first shot for when the onset of any side effects occured and then adjusting when i gave myself the shot so that the onset or most of the "WORST" of the sx occured while I was sleeping. So, if you get the shot at 11 am and at 5pm you start notcing sx then adjust the next time you get a shot so that you do it 6 hours before you'll be asleep.
Avatar f tn While a BID dosing schedule is nice, the fundamental cooperative toxicity between interferon, ribavirin and a protease inhibitor must be factored into the mix, Chung added. BID dosing will not make more patients get treated now, agreed Dr Susannah Naggie, assistant professor of medicine, Infectious Diseases, Duke University. The new regimen will not make a difference for someone who has already decided to wait, she said.
Avatar f tn Will a urine test know what class 2 schedule drugs are being taken whether an oxy or vicodin? I have a script for 10 mg vicodin but ran out and friend let ke take a 5mg oxy for my pain till script coupd be refilled...i then took a urine test..both meds re a class 2 schedule so will the urine test know the difference?
1233941 tn?1267735211 I also noted some commenting that they are dosing two - three times per day. I am not a doctor and cannot recommend dosing, but the halflife with sub is nearly 40 hours and dosing once per 24 hours is more than enough, taking more than once per days is a mute point because it does not help with the drug taking behavior what so ever. I started out on 24mg from a 200mg+ hydrocodone habit. I quickly worked my way down to 16, then 8mg and took between 2 - 4 mg/day for several years.
Avatar m tn Yeah, sorry about any possible miscommunication. The Incivek dosing schedule of three times a day has to to do with the relatively short half-life of Incivek. Taking each dose with 20 grams of fat has to do with increasing absorption & bioavailability. Even though someone's doctor may have said otherwise it would be helpful to provide the Incivek Product Monograph to show the dosing schedule has changed.
1124967 tn?1283705847 For those who have used clondine for help with wd, what was your dosing amount? Is .1mg a low amount? Should that be helping her at this point? Does anyone know the usually dosing amounts to help for severe wd or what the max allowable for clonidine? Any information would be greatly appreciated.
Avatar f tn Nucynta is very very similar to Ultram only much stronger and it is a controlled substance...more so than the Vicodin (a schedule II vs. schedule III). This is because the FDA realized that the statements the drug maker of Ultram made were false. They stated it was non-narcotic and had no addiction potential when it most certaintly does. But based on pharmacology, the Vicodin is stronger than Ultram which is why you are in significantly more pain.
Avatar m tn Honestly, I would just skip it and resume your normal dosing schedule in the am. You are on a every 12 hour schedule, and it would be one thing if it were just off by a little, but you are off by 6, 7 hours.. Not that it would harm you in any way, but you may end up with a few unpleasant side effects, especially since you're dosing twice daily. If you find yourself frequently forgetting to take a dose...then find a way to remind yourself.
Avatar f tn Oycodone is in a different class of drugs than Vicodin. Vicodin is a Schedule III drug and Oxycodone is a Schedule II drug. It is stronger than Vicodin and probably the reason your doctor prescribed it rather than the hydrocodone (vicodin) is because oxycodone is available in a pure form without acetominophen in it. Hydrocodone is not.
Avatar n tn Take Xanax only at the times it has been prescribed for you to take it. If you feel you need to add to, or change your dosing schedule, your doctor is the only one who can answer this question.
Avatar f tn Recently I went to my dr hoping to get off vicodin and suggested tramadol because I thought it was a narcotic. I still had a few vicodin so I would take a couple vicodin then the next day take tramadol Now I am on day 2 quitting them both cold turkey. I am so irritable and hot flashes and sweats. Didn't sleep more then an hour last night. ANY SUGGESTIONS PLEASE!!! I am so frightened that I can't do this. I need help but am a new mom and need to be here for my son.
Avatar m tn Preliminary pharmacokinetic analyses of pre-dose samples taken on day 8 of dosing in approximately 50 patients in this study indicate that trough concentrations in those patients receiving a twice-daily dosing schedule are similar to trough concentrations of a three times daily dosing schedule, and are also similar to trough concentrations observed in PROVE 1 and PROVE 2.
1569985 tn?1328247482 Regular dose is 600 mg. and I am only on 300 mg. Maybe I should just go back to my regular dosing schedule in the morning?
