I wouldn't take more than prescribed. Although listed as a non-narcotic, it is a synthetic opiate with high addiction/ dependency properties for a lot of people. I'd try and make it through until you can contact your dr tomorrow and let him know it's just not working for you. Try elevating your ankle above heart level and applying ice packs to the leg above your cast. If you just can't abide the pain anymore, go to the er. At the very least you can call your drs office and get the number for his night service and ask them about upping your medication dose. Hope this helps you a bit and let us know how things turn out for you!

Can you use ice packs to numb the area??? Don't double up on meds... you are going to have problems down the road. And, like someone else already said, you might have trouble getting refills if you run out too soon.
Don't do it and call your doctor asking for other remedies as well. Okay??? Please don't start doubling up...
