When I first started taking pain meds on a regular basis, I had the same
problem. At that time, I was taking Vicodin 5mg every 4-6 hrs. Your
body will eventually become used to the pain meds. At one point, I was
using the duragesic patch 100, 8-10 vicodin 10mg & motrin 800. That is
a lot of meds! But my body got used to them & I drove all the time. give
yourself some time for your body to adjust.
