So I am 20 yo and i have been diagnosed with osteoarthritis in my knees hips and lower back after several years of pain it got to the point that I would tear up from random daily activities. My doctor prescribed me HYDROCO/APAP 5/325MG. So my problem is that when I take 2 it dulls the pain for 1 or 2 hours and then the pain is back like clockwork everytime I take my dose. Then I have to wait 4 more hours to take another dose. I have been taking them for a couple weeks now. So my question is; is this how they work for everyone? If not what are the desired results? Could it be to small of a dose? I am 6 ft 2 in tall 285lb fully clothed and in my work boots. I am going to talk with my doctor but would like to be able to supply some input or thoughts without sounding dumb. I have never really had experience with this type of medication or medications in general. Is there some other things I should suggest? I'm just trying to figure out my situation. Thank you for taking the time to read this and thank you for any input.
