How do pain meds affect you? tired? or wired?

I have had a severe toothaches for a few days now and a friend gave me a Vicadon(spell?) pain pill and told me to take it with 2 advil. She is a nurse and I trust her. Well the pain is gone but now I'm WIRED! I could clean the whole house right now if everyone weren't sleeping!! LOL!
I heard pain pills make people sleepy or "stoned". Well I'm wide awake! now what???
(I will see the dentist tomorrow)

  • Pain pills always make me feel like I'm having an outer body experience LOL! I must admit I do like them. I'm not a whore for them or anything, but I wouldn't turn them down if a doctor offered them to me.

  • Vicodin doesn't do that to me, but there are others that do. I've had a lot of surgeries, so I'm picky about what they give me now. Some of them the side effects are worse than the pain.

  • They make me speed my ass off. Watch out they are very addicting and is a huge problem right now for people. I got addicted to them and it was not good, I have not touched one in 2 years.

  • I also want to add that I actually don't like Vicodin. It's been a while, but I'm pretty sure that stuff makes me itch. Do you itch? Maybe it's just me....

  • I get veryyyyy tired. I had my appendix taken out a few years ago and remember very little of the 2 weeks of recovery at home. Once I took that pain pill I was out.
