narcotic analgesics-oral tablet sustained action
GENERIC NAME: NARCOTIC ANALGESICS - ORAL TABLET SUSTAINED ACTION
USES: This medication is used to relieve moderate to severe pain.
HOW TO USE: To prevent upset stomach, take with food or milk. Swallow tablets whole. Do not chew or crush them. Pain medications work best in preventing pain before it occurs. Once the pain becomes intense, the medication is not as effective in relieving it. Use this medication exactly as directed by your doctor. Do not increase your dose, use it more frequently or use it for a longer period of time than prescribed because this drug can be habit-forming. Also, if used for an extended period, do not suddenly stop using this drug without your doctor's approval. Over time, this drug may not work as well. Consult your doctor if this medication is not relieving the pain sufficiently.
