  • I was given a script that would last a minimum of 4 weeks (one pill every 4 the most). I took 5 pills total. If you've taken all of your pills and you're still in pain, I would consult your doctor. It could be normal and he'll give you more pills, or he may want to see you before prescribing more meds. Good luck.

  • I got 3days worth. And I made them last twice as long because I was only taking the 2 times a day instead of 4-6 like it said to. And yes I am still in pain but I want to see if they would think I was a baby for calling or if other did it. They see me next friday but I dont think I can wait that long.

  • I asked for more with my first child and I REALLY NEEDED THEM!! The Doctor would not give me more. She told me there should be no reason why I would need more. I was 20 years old and I think she judged my age and intelligence.

    I ended up going to the ER that night and I had a horrible infection and thats what was causing the pain:(

  • I had a c-section and my OB prescribed 800mg Ibuprofen as well as 25 mg percocet. I had 30 days worth of each, but the percocet made my muscles jumpy and just made the pain worse. I ended up taking the ibuprofen for 2 weeks, and didn't really need it anymore
