Dosage info

Standard Adult Pain Dose: Individualise treatment based on pain severity, patient response, prior analgesic treatment, and vulnerability to addiction, abuse, and misuse:

Immediate-Release: Take 50–100 mg orally every 4–6 hours for discomfort. If needed, take a second dose on Day 1 after 1 hour.

Next dose: 50, 75, or 100 mg orally every 4–6 hours to maintain analgesia and acceptable side effects.
After day 1, 600 mg/day.

Remarks: Meet each patient’s treatment goals with the lowest effective dosage for the shortest duration.
-Watch for respiratory depression in the first 24–72 hours and with each dose increase.
Reserve use for patients who have not tolerated, or are not expected to tolerate, non-opioid analgesics or opioid combination products, or have not provided adequate analgesia due to the risks of addiction, abuse, and misuse, even at recommended doses.

Standard Adult Chronic Pain Dosage
Individualise therapy by considering risk, analgesic treatment history, therapeutic response, and pain severity.

Addiction risk factors
Stop all tapentadol and tramadol drugs before starting extended-release tablets.

Complex-release tablets:

Starting dosage: 50 mg twice a day orally – Titrate individually to limit adverse effects while providing adequate analgesia; dose increases should not exceed 50 mg twice a day every three days.

Comments: Breakthrough pain may need an appropriate dose of an immediate-release analgesic.
-Before increasing the dose, try to identify the reason of the increased pain.
-Use should be limited to patients for whom alternative treatment options (such as non-opioid analgesics or immediate-release opioids) are ineffective, not tolerated, or insufficient to manage pain due to the risks of addiction, abuse, and misuse even at recommended doses.

Missed doses—what happens?

Since tapentadol treats pain, you won’t forget a dose. Skip the missed dose if your next dose is due. If you miss a dose, don’t double up.

Never double-dose to make up for a missed dose. Never exceed the daily dose.

Overdosing—what happens?

Overdosing on opioids may be fatal, especially in youngsters and unprescribed users. Overdose symptoms include severe tiredness, pin-point pupils, slowed respiration, or no breathing.

Your doctor may recommend carrying naloxone, which may counteract opioid overdoses, at all times. A carer may inject naloxone if you stop breathing or don’t wake up. CPR may be needed to resuscitate you while waiting for help. Your caretaker must get emergency care.

Drugstores and community health centres sell naloxone. Make sure your carers know where and how to administer naloxone.
