My prescription says 1 tablet every 4 -6 hrs; I have been using Esgic Plus for over 15 years; I actually take 2 tablets at a time to get rid of a headache as soon as the headache starts. YES you can take an additional pill; check with your pharmacist and make sure your prescription has less than 750 mg. of acetomeniphen (tylenol); Esgic has 325 mg., Esgic Plus usually has 500 mg. which is the same as Extra Strength Tylenol.
Note: This Medication DOES interfere with Birth Control Pills; I have a 15 yr. old daughter to prove it!
