I gave birth in june and had a 16 hour very painful very stressful labor. Ever since I've been seeing doctors about back pain. One doctor that I've been seeing for a while has been prescribing me vicodin. I've been switched from 7.5 to 5 and told to take "as many times a day as i need" to get rid of my pain. The pharmacist said I could take at most 8 per day. So today I took 2 every four hours 4 times. After my last dose about an hour ago I all of the sudden got a sense of paranoia and got nauseous. I felt light headed dizzy and had to lay down. After drinking about 24 oz of water I feel a little better. What is going on here?
Why do I feel this way? (i certainly won't be taking this many in one day again)
