With a low tolerance, should I be safe and take half the capsule and sprinkle it on food of mix it in a drink? I have to take it at work and don’t want to overdue it. Any suggestions? Thanks!
BURTTURK; NO THIS IS WHAT YOU HAVE Generic Name: oxycodone Dosage Form: capsule, extended release Indications and Usage for Xtampza ER Xtampza ER is indicated for the management of pain severe enough to require daily, around-the-clock, long-term opioid treatment PAIN TREATMENT
BURT; THIS IS A TIMED RELEASE PAIN MEDICATION YOU CAN'T TAKE IT APART IT MUST BE TAKEN THE WAY IT IS OR YOU COULD GET TO MUCH AT ONE TIME AND ALSO MESS UP THE TIMED RELEASE ACTION WHICH IS VERY DANGEROUS. ALSO IF YOU HAVE TO TAKE THIS AT WORK IT MIGHT BE BEST TO TAKE IT WITH A LITTLE FOOD AND IT'S BEST NOT TO TAKE IN FRONT OF PEOPLE. AGAIN YOU MUST TAKE THE WHOLE THING AT ONCE YOU CAN'T SPLIT THIS TYPE OF PILL IF IT IS TO STRONG TALK TO YOUR DOCTOR ABOUT SOMETHING THAT YOU CAN TAKE AT WORK. chuck1957
From what I've read about this drug you take it two times daily. I would imagine in the AM "Before" going to work and again in the evening. Since it is a time release it should NOT be broken, however I understand WHY some would say it was ok. Most of the individuals taking this drug have reported that it takes approximately TWO hours to begin to work and that would be a downside. Good luck. I hope it provides you with the results you are seeking. Medications can be so fickle these days.
