Hi Chaya, I'm sorry you are having so much trouble with the pain meds. There are so many differnt ones out there you'd think they could give you somthing that suits you better. I just started taking percocet 10/325 x4 per day. The first time I took it I got really messed up on it. the next day I was kind of tired but not but not all spaced out. This is the 3rd day and it doesn't even bother me. and yes I also cleaned my house some what better than normal.I didn't clean like a wild woman or anything but I did get a lot done. You know we are all diffferent and somthings just don't work for us. You should get persistant with our doctor and let him know that you are really having a problem with it. or give it a couple more days and see if you get used to it. They make vicodin in 5, 7.5, and 10mg. I think the 10 has the 325 tylenol too. but I can't swear to that.
try calling your doc again and tell them you need to really consider changing the meds tel them you think you mght be alergic to them somthing.
let us know
