Customer Question

I have run out of my regular pain medicine, 5mg Oxycodone x 6 per day and am trying to get by until Thursday, when I will be able to have a new prescription filled. I am really suffering, but must take care of my elderly mother. My question is: Would it be safe for me to take an old prescription of mine, Tramodol HC 50 mg and how much can I take? I have no history of seizure.
