Side Effects
It was hard to think straight. I felt really sleepy and could barely stand. Excellent for the pain. And no vomiting! (I do have a really weak stomach) After you stopped taking it you do feel your body withdraw from it. This is a strong pain medicine and it should not be taken for mild pain.
