Hi there!

The medication dosage would depend on the weight of an individual. Bed rest is not typically advised unless there is evidence of severe degeneration, which could be complicated by movement; though bed rest may be advised for symptomatic relief for a few days intermittently. The medications are advised for infection control. In the presence of additional degeneration, reconstruction surgery may be advised in moderate/ severe cases, if required. I would suggest discussing this in detail with your treating doctor.
Hope this helps.

Take care!
