    After reading the info that comes with the drugs from the pharmacy I noticed something I had not read before. Regarding Oxycodone, it said not to take it with food as it may be less effective. I tried that, since I usually take drugs with food to prevent nausea, and it kicked in much quicker with better pain relief. Also a Neurologist I saw a couple of weeks ago prescribed me Maxaran. He said to take it with other drugs as it would allow your body to absorb them faster. Thought I'd pass this on in case it helps anyone. Hope everyone's feeling good today, I'm not, I have a brutal migraine and that darn eye ball pain! Laura

    Laura:

    So sorry about your migraine. I hope it passes quickly.
    Good tip about reading those little labels on the med bottles. I am guilty of sometimes ignoring them.

    i've noticed the same thing with vicodin. it works much better for me if i take it on an empty stomach, so does my robaxin actually. i'm glad you mentioned this.
