Days Supply Question: #90 Tramadol, 1 Tab by Mouth Every 6 Hours

Tramadol Days Supply -- 4 tablets/day = 22 Days Supply

Tramadol Days Supply -- 4 tablets/day = 22 Days Supply

If I have a script of 90 Tramadol and the sig says "take one every 6 hours" how many days supply is that? I'm coming up to like 22. Am I right?

Answer: The patient can take a maximum of 4 tablets a day (24 hours in a day, divided by 6 = 4). Divide 90 by 4 and you get 22 days. Yes, you are right. Thanks for your question!

#120 Tramadol: 1 tab every 6-8 hours-Days Supply?
by: David

Days Supply is calculated by using the quantity dispensed divided by the most frequent and highest or maximum possible amount of medication taken each day.

So, in this case, for 1 tablet every 6-8 hours, we would use the calculation of a maximum of 4 tablets per day (every 6 hours = 4 of those segments in 24 hours = 4 possible tablets taken each day).

Next, we divide 120/4 which = 30 Days Supply.

Tramadol question
by: Anonymous

I have #120 tramadol , 1 every 6 to 8 hours as needed. Is this a 30 day supply? Do pharmacies go by the 6 hour allowed frequency or the 8 hour?
