After having MAJOR toncil surgery for cancer, I found it to be the most difficult painful medicine that I could ever imagine. At one point I screamed with pain after the first swallow.

Comment:
Have a particularly bad case of Strep Throat and was prescribed the Elixir to help with the pain. And this has to be one of the worst prescription pain killers I've ever received. The only good thing about this garbage is how sleepy it makes me, which in turn allows me to zoink out.

Had most of my stomach and small portion of small intestine removed 4 days ago. Was on morphine in hospital and was switched to Lortab elixir the day before discharge.

I either have to suffer or take dosages more frequently.
