When to call your doctor or pharmacist

  • Call your doctor or pharmacist if you have unusual feelings after taking a pain medicine. This includes feeling dizzy, itchy or nausea. Take less of the medicine and call your doctor.
  • If you are not getting enough pain relief from your pain medicine, call your doctor.
  • If you take several medicines, make sure your doctor and pharmacist knows what you are taking. Some medicines can be harmful when taken with others.
  • If you need a narcotic pain medicine refilled close to the weekend, call your pharmacy several days ahead of time so you do not run out.
