Disclosure: I am going to call my doc in the morning, and I know it's dumb to ask people about pain medicine online.
Here's the question. How long does it take it to kick in? Does it work like an Asprin? Or do I need to take it a few times to get into my system?
I wanted to get some ahead of time before I started getting Chemo because I've had some experiences when my PSA was half of what it is now, I would be in a lot of pain, especially one night when I was on a date with my girl. It felt like someone injected lava into my harm. I had to take the daily max dose of NSAID to get it to stop.
I usually have to take daily doses of over-the-counter stuff for pain reliever to work, even when I was a lean 200-pound beast.
Do you guys take it when you need it or is it supposed to be taken every 8 hours? Again I'll ask the doc tomorrow. Today I was prescribed 50 pills so if I have to cut some in half to find the dose that will work for me, I can do that.
