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.
Hi, although i have to say to always follow the directions on the bottle, it is quite common to take 2 x (50mg) tablets/capsules at a time. A maximum dose is 400mg per day. This will depend on the individual, age, weight, medical conditions, other medication that someone may be taking... You might want to get advice from a doctor, but overall, you should be fine taking 100mg dose at night.
