I tore ligaments in my foot and the ER gave me Vicodin. Yes, it took the pain away, but I bottomed out. Called my pdoc in dire straights and she said that shouldnt be taking any type of opiates - by nature they will drive me to depression.

So, maybe your docs have some common sense and know your mood could destabilize. Then again, they could just be wack.

I just wish I could take Excedrin still - Lithium taking that away from me. Tylenol just doesn't cut the cake.

Good luck.
