I was just prescribed tramadol and the bottle says take 1 every 6 hours, but the dentist said just take them when the pain is really bad. I have almost no pain all day, only at night as I try to sleep. I don't want to take them for no reason, so I only take 1 a day (at night), but it really does nothing. Would it be ok to take 2 at once? I figure it's fine as I've read a lot of people saying they take 2. My tolerance is fine, I was taking hydrocodon acetaminoph 7.5 -325 the same way (2 at night) previously without a problem. I ask because the dentist was new and a real jerk so I have little interest in ever contacting him again. I don't have a lot so it's not a long term thing, just another week until my appointment.
