Loratab Hangover

I pulled a muscle in my stomach when we were hiking on Thursday. I'm not sure how. We all went up to the Mill D Lake Trail in Big Cottonwood Canyon. It most likely happened when I had to carry Derek back down the mountain after he refused to go any further.

It really hurt, and Motrin didn't help. I had some leftover Loratab from some dental work awhile ago. It made me sick then too, but I guess I thought that maybe it was just the pain and stress from surgeries that made me sick. I was hoping that this time would be different...the only time I take them is after some kind of surgery. Maybe if I took it for an injury I wouldn't get sick...

Wrong again! I felt really good on Thursday night after I took it. Then Friday morning I was SO sick! Throw up sick! Every single time!!! I don't know how people get addicted to the stuff.

Jeff says he loves Loratab and they give him a feeling of Euphoria...they just make me sick...flat on my back... for at least 24 hours. And of course Derek does not accept "mommy doesn't feel good" as an excuse for not having the world revolve around him.

Anyways, I'm glad I'm feeling better again now. I think that next time I will just stick with the heating pad and the Motrin.

Do you get sick from pain killers?

I'm with Jeff, Lortab is the best! It makes me feel a little loopy and really giggly. In fact my dentist once gave me a prescription and told me to fill it, even if I didn't need it right away. She said it's always good to have on hand. I totally agree! Sorry you were so sick.:(

I don't think I've ever taken anything that strong...glad you're feeling better. Do you even remember our conversation on Friday? You willed all your prized possessions to me!!

I totally get sick from Lortab! I hate it! I am totally a low dose asprin/tylenol kind of person. I don't like taking it unless I have to.

I am also in the loretab makes me sick club! I don't think I will ever take it again since I was so miserable last time! Anyway, I hope you are feeling better. :)

I love Lortab. I also get all euphoric and sooo relaxed. I could totally get addicted that stuff. I feel bad for you guys who get sick...

I have only taken vicodin and it makes me sick too. Hate that stuff. How is your stomach now? Oh yeah, I like the picture of you hiking!!!

Poor girl! Yeah Lortab makes me want to puke my guts out. And morphine does nothing for me. Other than that I would prefer 4 Advil.

I hate it!! My doc gave them to me after my knee surgery...and I don't think I've EVER gotten sicker. Nope! No Lortab for Laryl!!!

I would have to say that I agree with Jeff. Bring on the pain killers! They make me feel really good and I never get sick. So thats too bad that you don't get to enjoy them like some of us get to. I always thought it was the reward for having such bad pain that not only does the pill take the pain away but it gives you a nice buzz too. I guess that's not the way it is for everyone. At least your feeling better now right?

Wow! I was so excited to get so many responses from everyone! I will definately have to ask questions more often!

To those of you who get to enjoy the affects of drugs occasionally, I am envious. Good for you.

For the rest of us...we will just keep plugging along...at least theres still chocolate!

Laura said...

Mmm did you say chocolate??? Sounds good to me!

Did somebody say chocolate?!!!
