Well, Percocet makes me babbly (at least in writing and in my head; it doesn't spill out of my mouth), but not sleepy. I took the full doses throughout the night and was pain-free, but hardly slept. The Percocet made me so relaxed that I didn't MIND lying there for 10 hours and only sleeping approximately 3, but ya know, my body NEEDS the sleep. Now I'm a little cranky. And I'm inquiring about whether there's a sleep aid I can safely take. I don't think I should attempt to drive the 45 mins home until A) I have slept a bit, and B) I have switched from Perc to a less intense OTC pain-reliever, or at least am between doses of Perc. I'm not sure yet if those conditions will be met today...or if I'll be here at my mom's another night!
