Hi, let me help you with this
maximum dose is 200mg per day (50mg four times a day)
does this answer your question?
Is it better to spread it out all day to get into your system or 2 morning and 2 nightly/
you would be better spreading it out like every 6 hours
I see the pain management doctor on Friday afternoon. I've had a sleep study and it showed I had over 200 episodes so I'm not getting good sleep at night which doesn't help.
yes, definitely talk to your pain doctor.
Thank you for your help in the mean time. Is there anything on the market that would possibly work more effectively. I just hurt all the time, whether I'm sitting or standing and also lying down. My knee feels as though it's about to burst at times!
You are welcome, anything stronger than this drug for pain should be a control medication.
Thanks again and I wil close out for now. I'm using Zipsor 4 x daily and Pennsaid oil to be applied 4 x daily which is very inconvenient at times.
Good night and Thanks!
