Pain Management Specialist Questions Pain killers

What should be the ideal time gap between two painkillers?

My friend was prescribed pain killers after her fall a week ago since she still had some pain in her hip. I feel though that she is taking too much of her pills at once, and I don't want her to depend on them. Is there an ideal time gap between taking two painkillers?
