Hello, Starshadow! How are you? I'm very sorry that you're in pain.

What other pain medications have you taken?

It sounds like this might be too low of a dose to help you. There are higher doses available.

The FDA classifies this medication as a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation.
