Addiction, Abuse, and Misuse.
Dosage and Administration
Tapentadol is typically started at a low dose and gradually increased until pain is under control. Dosage should be individualized based on pain severity, therapy response, prior treatment experience and risk factors of addiction, abuse and misuse. Immediate-release tapentadol tablets are typically prescribed with an initial dosage of 50 to 100 mg taken orally every four to six hours as needed for pain relief. Additional doses may be prescribed for the first day of use to achieve optimum pain relief. The maximum dosage for immediate-release tapentadol tablets is 700 mg on the first day and 600 mg on subsequent days. Extended-release tapentadol tablets are typically prescribed with an initial dosage of 50 mg taken twice per day. The maximum dosage of extended-release tapentadol tablets is 500 mg per day. Dosage should be individualized to provide adequate pain relief yet minimize adverse reactions. If changing from immediate-release to extended-release tapentadol, the current daily dosage of immediate-release should be divided into two equal doses of extended-release and taken orally twice per day, 12 hours apart.
How should I take?
Tapentadol comes as a tablet and an extended-release (long acting) tablet to take by mouth. The tablets are usually taken with or without food every 4 to 6 hours as needed. If you are taking tapentadol tablets, your doctor may tell you that you may take a second dose as soon as 1 hour after the first dose on your first day of treatment if needed to treat your pain. Do not take extra doses at any other time during your treatment and do not ever take extra doses of the extended-release tablets. The extended-release tablets are taken once every 12 hours. Follow the directions on your prescription label carefully, and ask your doctor or pharmacist to explain any part you do not understand. Take tapentadol exactly as directed.
What should I know!
While you are taking tapentadol, you may be told to always have a rescue medication called naloxone available (e.g., home, office). Naloxone is used to reverse the life-threatening effects of an overdose. It works by blocking the effects of opiates to relieve dangerous symptoms caused by high levels of opiates in the blood. You will probably be unable to treat yourself if you experience an opiate overdose. You should make sure that your family members, caregivers, or the people who spend time with you know how to tell if you are experiencing an overdose, how to use naloxone, and what to do until emergency medical help arrives.
