Discussions that mention vicodin

Back Problems board

Had my first post op DR appt yesterday after hemilaminectomy, facetectomy and foraminotomy (sp) 4 weeks ago. I'm still taking vicodin for pain in leg and foot and dull ache in lower back.

I was prescribed neurontin yesterday. I'd like to know what to expect from this drug from those of you taking it now or in the past. I was able to sleep through the night! That was nice, as I've been waking every night with pain in my leg and foot. I'm kind of sleepy this morning so am hoping that will go away. Could my sleepiness be caused by the first dose?

Thanks for any responses.
