Hydrocodone makes me sleepy for a short period of time and provides only short relief with one pill. Doctor prescribes four pills and I am a caregiver for my husband. It is hard to take all four since I cannot sleep all day. I wish they would last longer and not make me so sleepy so I could be more productive, but glad they provide some relief.6/3/2015 at 10:17 AM

This pain medicine helps sometimes.Again,taking meds for a long period of time causes it to lose its effect. I have yet to find a medicine that gives me lasting relief.5/9/2015 at 01:20 AM
