it was glorious

Had pain management app Monday. My doc increased my dosage of loratabs and gave me xtra also.

Tues I start them a little worried they make me sick. No didn't get sick. Walked around with no pain! It was a wonderful thing.!

I felt like my old self! Wonderful! . I was cleaning my house, all in my yard....till 4 hours later..

The exhaustion was still there...an that night, I was ready for my next pill.

He told me not to over do it...

But it was a wonderful thang while it lasted.


  • Just a suggestion but try to eat some crackers or bread or something before taking the vicoden. I find that too much tylenol tears my stomach up and I can't tolerate the upset so I have to eat something before I take anything with tylenol in them.
  • I know that feeling, you feel a little better and decide to get somethings done, then you know you have done too much. When I am feeling better, I like to cook, all that movement in the kitchen sneaks up on me, but at least my stomach is happy for awhile.
    I also eat at least 2 crackers everytime I take pain meds. In my mind, I think it distributes the meds better. Maybe it is years of working at a hospital, they always give pt crackers with their oral meds.
