Over did physical lifting and general household work, sever lower back pain (this is day 4). Using spa,TENS belt and once a day half a vicodin. Trouble walking and cannot bend over.Have been resting more but also trying to move about.
I am trying to identify a round yellow pill with XXXXXXX on one side and the number 3926 on the back, Pretty sure it's Diazepam but not sure of mgs or how often to take.
Thank You,
XXXX

Also, I have a similar pill-Teva w/3927. Please tell me dosage and mg. Pretty sure it is Diazepam.My Dr. was not in last Fri. but will see him if no improvement with my back.
Thanks,
XXXX

Thanks for identifying pills, but is the usually time limit between each dose? How far apart should 5mg be taken? and How much time between 10mg doses?

Brief Answer:
Maximum every 6h

Detailed Answer:
Dear XXXXXXX

The usual recommended frequency is every 12 hours; sometimes you will find that it could be given a dose every 6 hours, but this can lead to too much somnolence and increased risks.

Best regards

Dr B
