I will break from the norm and just say this....I know that sometimes the pain seems so bad that the medication just does not help...and we need to take an extra one sometimes. You should talk to your Dr. about the pain level and see if you can take something that is longer acting and maybe something for the BT pain. Some meds aren't meant to last very long so taking an extra one really won't help. It may be more mental then physical and if that's the case you should really talk to your Dr. Taking extra pills will only deplete your bottle and at the end of the month all you have is an empty bottle staring up at you. That's no good...
Don't feel bad, it sounds like you just need some help...Good Luck
