I take a 10 mg lortab once or twice daily, mainly for my arthritis pain. I never could handle strong pain meds, didn't need any unless I obstructed or had new surgery. Now I find that I can function much better and get some energy because I let it go too long, and really feel miserable before I medicate. My bp has been running higher on steroids so my bp doesn't drop too much, maybe that is what is happening to you. Can you check your bp lying and then standing? I am not sure if chronnies can take darvocet or tramadol but if so, that could be an alternative. I do know that morphine, codiene and percocet make me very nauseous/vom.
