DSM3KIDZ Posted March 8, 2007 Report Share Posted March 8, 2007 Sometimes I take Vicodin for my back pain and migraines. Well I only take it about once a 1 to 2 x a week and I ALWAYS feel better, like I don't have POTS, I have energy and am able to complete all my tasks. Well I know it's addictive, been there...........and I know it's a narcotic but I was trying to figure why it makes me feel so much more active so I checked my rates the last 4x I needed it and standing my bp was 122/84 hr 82 than 3 minutes late it was 120/84 hr 76 and after 5 minutes it stayed hr of 76. MY HR IS NEVER 76. Anyways my question is why does the med actually take my POTS away? Would all narcotics do this to anyone or is there something in the meds that help with our illness?I wish it wasn't a narcotic because than I have found my miracle drug but because of the addictiveness and overall long term side effects I can't take it regularly. And docs won't prescribe alot of it.............I understand why but still wish it was safe to use regularly.Anyone else have this experience with vicodin or a narcotic?Dayna Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
