Took another one early.

I admit, I have a hard time understanding narcotics addiction. The side effects seem to be so bad for what is an ephemeral feeling. And as a doctor, I'm trying to care for the patient as best as I can. But there are trust issues (both ways) that impede this.

I have no solutions. Just a sad shake of my head.

I couldn't wait to get off of the percocets after my surgery. Sure it took away the pain but all I did was lay on the couch with saltines and a barf bucket next to me. Awful.

Was prescribed Hycodan for a terrible cough that accompanied a horrible upper respiratory viral infection. While the anti-tussive worked as intended, The nausea was so absolutely horrible and I chose the coughing as the lesser of the two evils.

So...I hear ya. I don't understand it either.

I'm having issues balancing pain control with the percocets and the side effects. Right now, I'm hating narcotics.

My goal this week is to keep food in my stomach.
