Carefully consider the potential benefits and risks of REPREXAIN™ and other treatment options before deciding to use REPREXAIN™. Use the lowest effective dose for the shortest duration consistent with individual patient treatment goals (see WARNINGS). After observing the response to initial therapy with REPREXAIN™, the dose and frequency should be adjusted to suit an individual patient's needs. For the short-term (generally less than 10 days) management of acute pain, the recommended dose of REPREXAIN™ is one tablet every 4 to 6 hours, as necessary. Dosage should not exceed 5 tablets in a 24-hour period. It should be kept in mind that tolerance to hydrocodone can develop with continued use and that the incidence of untoward effects is dose related.
