This really seems to be the drug of the hour in our discussions lately! Is it that new, or are doctors just pushing it more now for some reason, I wonder?
I'm taking it for breakthrough pain (more evenings than not, though, lately) and my question is, does anyone drive while taking it? I will if it's just a short drive in town, don't notice a problem....I only take 25 mg most of the time. But tomorrow I'm going out of town, and I won't get back till after the time I'd usually take it. (I already know that it's going to be the kind of the day that exaccerbates my pain.)
I can wait if necessary, of course, but then it doesn't always work as well. So should I take it before my half-hour drive home, or is that a bad idea? I don't feel dopey when I take it - removed a bit, but not dopey.
I also still don't understand if it's a narcotic or not - what I've read seems contradictory and confusing.
