The verdict is out: my body doesn't like vicodin one tiny bit.

I took a half of one per the 24 hour dial a nurse instructions (as that's what they used to do at the hospital), and it made me exhausted, yet too nauseous to sleep. Not fun.

So, this means that tomorrow I do the Aleve/Tylenol tag team, while trying to call and see if they can prescribe me something besides vicodin, and also calling into Walgreens to see if I have any more of the other pain killer/muscle relaxant available to me from when I wonked out my back.

Ooh, just called Walgreens, and have some disulphamide sodium thing, which is that pain killer thing (I hope) -- it's the only thing I had refills on, anyway. And I seem to recall the prescription I had a refill on was the analgesic.

I am utterly excited -- seriously!

Vicodin is magic -- I got a prescription the last time I had strep throat and it did wonders.

Did you eat before you took it? It made me a bit tummy upset when I took it the first few times, then I found that a cup of soup and a piece of bread (no milk!) helped things VERY much...and water, plenty of water.

I still have issues with vicodin...

After it keeping me up all night, the nurse called and I told her about it and she mentioned that it could do that, esp on an empty stomach. Her suggestion was to eat, and take half a vicodin. So, I did that, and still felt terrible for the next 8 hours. :(

Luckily, I still have that prescription for something else analgesic wise from when I threw my back out. :)
