  • I am not sure, but I can tell you that if they offer you a shot, it will probably just make you drowsy and calm but still in pain.

    Good luck!

  • Phyntenol (sp?) It makes you really loopy, or at least it did me. I was talking to dh going over and over again "I love you man, I really love you man" It was hilarious because I knew I was saying it and making no sense but I said it anyway.

  • Demoral (sp) and Stadol(Sp) they gave me the stadol and i was saying some pretty loopy stuff too!

  • Demoral was alright but that stadol didn't do a damn thing for me!
