Generally it's been my experience that taking less than you should can almost be as bad as taking more than you should unless you have an understanding with your doc about
They assume when they script
these meds that they're going to be taken as script
ed if the pain is bad enough to warrant them in the first place. If you take less (especially if its much less, like a 30 day script
lasts for 60 days) well, obviously (in their mind) you're not hurting that bad...and if you take more...well that sends up red flags right off the bat.
So my best advice for anyone and everyone is to take ALL meds exactly as prescribed unless and until you get the okay to adjust your own doses.
