What is it in pain killers that give a person extra energy?  I can work all day without a nap when I am on them but I know I have to stop taking them.  There is no way people can function with this much fatigue.  I have been researching other meathods of medication.  Has anyone out there heard of Notropic drugs?

  Hi Eric

  I really don't know how or why it is that pain killers to tend to stop the fatigue and I too have to take a nap daily from fatigue but when on the pain killers I do seem to be more alert and have more energe with awhole lot less anxiety with them then with SSRI's but the SSRI's do last all day where pain killers are only short lived. My only guess is that the pain killers function in the brain stops the pain as well as the part that makes us fatigue as well, where SSRI's tend to function in a differant way in the brain and not triggering that part that gives us the fatigue but I really don't think that pain killers is the way to go, as your body would tend to need stronger pain killers if one ever got hurt and not to said the dependentsy (sp) on the body and the body's function.

  But like I said when I had my knee surgery and had a cast on I was just going to town pounding nails, when framing the walls on my house where without them it would have taken day's to do one wall.

I wonder if it has something to do with tolerance. When I started narcotics, they wiped me out. After an extended period of time, I won't say I got more energy, but more like an OCD to get things accomplished. I didn't feel like doing anything, but there was always just one more thing to do before I could sit down and relax.

I've just upped my meds and now I'm pooped again.

Other opinions/experiences?

  That's a very good point on OCD and pain killers maybe others have some more input on this
