All is forgiven. My doctor had actually called it in to my old pharmacy 2 days ago. I never thought to check there. They called a little while ago to see how I was doing and said they would cancel it there and fax it to my new pharmacy. My faith is restored!
Not at all. It works best if you keep a level in your body. The max dose is 400 mg. a day. Its a controlled drug, so docs don't want to give you enough to count. And broken ribs are painful.
I don't think so,But they are coming down hard on doctors in many states on pain pills Maybe call the office and ask them what over the counter medication you can take with the tramodol temp. until your pain lets up some you cant bear it anymore... ITS ALL IN THE DOCTORS HANDS CALL THEM ITS FRIDAY AND THERE ARE MANY MEDS YOU CAN'T TAKE WITH TRAMODOL SO MAKE SURE YOU GET A OKAY FROM THE DOCTOR.. GOOD LUCK
It's not about unreasonable, it's about how all the abusers out there selling their prescriptions making it impossible for legit pain patients. It's only going to get worse as time passes.
Hi onefoot, glad all is sorted! I used to take Tramadol, initially prescribed for a back injury and i was on 400mg a day, so 250mg is acceptable. I'm glad it has been approved and that it treats your pain more effectively
