Talwin Nx Dosage

Talwin Nx is a prescription medicine that comes as a tablet and is taken every three to four hours to relieve moderate-to-severe pain. Your specific Talwin Nx dosage will depend on the severity of your pain, how you respond to the drug, and other medical conditions you may have, among other factors. Do not take more than 12 tablets a day.

An Introduction to Dosing With Talwin Nx

The dose of Talwin® Nx (pentazocine/naloxone) your healthcare provider recommends will vary, depending on a number of factors, including:
  • Your level of pain
  • How you respond to the medication
  • Other medications you are taking
  • Other medical conditions you may have.
As is always the case, do not adjust your dose unless your healthcare provider specifically tells you to do so.

What Is the Recommended Talwin Nx Dosage?

The usual recommended initial dosage of Talwin Nx for treating moderate-to-severe pain is one tablet (50 mg/0.5 mg) every three to four hours. Your healthcare provider may recommend an increase to two tablets every three to four hours if one is not enough to adequately control your pain. Normally, Talwin Nx begins to relieve pain 15 to 30 minutes after it is taken and continues to work for 3 or more hours.
If you take this medication regularly for a long period of time, you may become tolerant to its pain-relieving effects. Let your healthcare provider know if Talwin Nx stops working well to control your pain. He or she may need to adjust your dose or prescribe a different medication.
You could develop withdrawal symptoms if you suddenly stop taking this medicine, especially if you have been using it on a regular basis. Your healthcare provider may need to gradually reduce your dose if you will no longer be taking Talwin Nx.
