stadol nasal spray
Why don't doctors like patients to use this product when the patient has used it in the past and not abused it just needed a longer prescription for it, i was on 4 bottles a month and would have 1 day each week without the medication but I never abused the medication and got the results I needed and was able to function with using it about an hour after taking it at the prescribe rate - each bottle gives you approximately 8 to 12 treatments depending on how you spray it, and I was prescribed to take one spray in each nostril not more than 3 times a day and to skip a day inbetween

Hi,
As I have mentioned in the other post, Stadol Nasal Spray is a strong narcotic analgesic. And it is not advisable to  increase the dose, take it more frequently or use it for a longer period of time than prescribed because because this drug can be habit-forming. The doctors may have been trying to avoid this. Also, if used for extended periods, this medication may not work as well and may require different dosing  or different prescription medication.  Talk to your doctor about this to clear things up. Take care always.

Thank you for your response because today my therapist was asking me to explain what the difference was between using Stadol, delauidid 2 Mg. pill every 4 hurs, or Oppan 5 mg. pills every 4 hours was and which one had the worst side effects and why I liked the Stadol better so I told her first I treat my headache with 2 extra strength tylenol, and then Maxalt Melt tablets and then 2 mg. of dilaudid and if none of these work after waiting a reasonable amout of time between each medication I use the Stadol instead of going to the Emergency Room.  She said you really do have a good hand on how your medicine work and I said yes but there were problems that come up too because using tylenol every day causes rebounds and if you use Maxalt the manufacturers say you should skip a day inbetween and then the doctors tell you that you shouldn't use the dilaudid or Stadol every day because your body builds up a tolerance level against the medications so some days I have to go to the highest hitter first because I have to skip days inbetween and you can't schedule that ahead of time
