Safety regarding my medication

My Doctor is on vacation and of course I need a prescription refill. So my concern is, if I wait until next Thursday for my hydrocodone 5mg/500mg APAP, will this have an adverse effect on me? I have been on this medication for over 3 years since an ankle surgery, 2 a day. Maybe a nervous nelly, but am curious. Thanks

Thank you. If there are any recommendations for a substitute (non presciption or NSAID's because I am allergic) I would greatly appreciate it.

Re: Safety regarding my medication

for nasuea you can try Dramamine. That may also help with the insomnia. Sleepy time tea helps as well. For paon, Advil may not tear tummy up

Re: Safety regarding my medication

Have you called the doctor's office? He likely has a doctor that they are referring patients to for when he's gone.

Are you in Pain Management with a Pain Management doctor? If not, may be a good idea
