    Can you explain the difference between oxycodone and hydrocodone? Why would one work much better than the other?

    I too would like to know. Like I said in my post on meds, I am getting use to the hydrocodone, but when I had a Oxycodone it worked, whats up with that? :)

    The reason I'm asking is that the Lortab is not doing much for the pain, and in addition, is upsetting my stomach a lot.

    I overdid things this weekend, as I knew I probably would end up doing, even though I tried to pace myself and even took a nap yesterday afternoon. Late last night as we were trying to make our way back to my sister's place, I just couldn't walk any more and ended up in tears. Taking the Lortab every 4 or 5 hours didn't help me much and made me pretty nauseous. This morning I honestly could barely move and I took 2 of the Lortab at once and spent the next 5 hours trying to keep it down.

    I just saw pictures of what I look like (from this weekend), and my face looks like I've aged 10 years, and as much as I've tried to fight this, I have this *frozen in pain* look about me, which I am finding upsetting.

    I have a Dr's appt in 2-1/2 weeks and I want to talk to him about trying something else for pain. That's why I was wondering what the difference was. There has got to be something I can take that won't make me so nauseous, and will do a little more than just take the edge off. I am starting to feel beaten down from all of this, even though I'm trying so hard not to let it win.
