As a tablet and an extended-release (long-acting) tablet, oxymorphone is available for oral administration on an empty stomach at least one hour before or two hours after meals. Typically, it is taken every 4 to 6 hours. Ask your doctor or pharmacist to explain any instructions on your prescription label that you are unsure about following. Take oxymorphone as prescribed by your doctor. Never take it in larger or less amounts or more frequently than directed by your doctor.
Your doctor will likely prescribe you a low dose of oxymorphone and progressively increase it until it relieves your pain. If your pain is not being controlled, your doctor may change your dose at any point during your treatment. Call your doctor if you believe your pain is not under control. Without first consulting your doctor, never alter your medication's dosage.
