I have surgery slated for two weeks and I have been given pecocets for the pain. I don;t get a buzz anymore, so I worry about the ones I'm getting won't help. However, I did stop taking a lot during pregnancy (only a few as dr. told me) and when I had the baby, the meds certainly did work.
Even when I have a terrible headache, I can take a few tylenol 3s and they do help the pain I just don't get high.
I think this is good, I hope the meds work for my surgery as it's severe surgery and I have a small baby and a toddler to care for. What's your story, are you having surgery?
Jan,Take my advice dont use the word,buzz,eurphoric, etc. these are red-flags that doctors reference in acessing a persons symtomology for being prescribed analgesic i.e.narcotic-pain meds.As for you not feeling the buzz,well pain meds are still blocking thwe neuro-transmission of the pain signal,your neuro-recweptor sites become blocked and cannot bond with the incoming messenger. its more complicAted that that, but my physican said its the way most non-medical,lay person understands.Also make the anestheologist aware that you have a tolerance,show him the RX-bottle so he/she can give you aduquate levels,as you probably require addictional as people develope a tolerance.Goodluck with the sergury john
