I have the flu, complete with debilitating migraine and body aches. Norel SR is supposed to be a pain killer. I thought Vicodin was the lowest brand pain killer you could be prescribed until I had this stuff. It's like tylenol, I took one, and i still had a migraine an hour later, so I took another and then I got dry heaves. I'm a professional pill-taker. I never puke. I still didn't sleep after t...

I become incredibly drowsy/sleepy after taking just one norel sr (substianed release). I had just slept 9 hrs. and then I took one norel tab yesterday morning after being awake only 3 hrs. I then slept ALL day long and straight through the following night for a total of being asleep 28.5 hrs. out of 32.5 hrs. This is the 3rd time norel has done this to me. I won't take it again. I was not taking any other meds. Typically I can never sleep more than 9 hrs. and never nap. A lot of meds make me super hyper or drowsy. The bottle says to take one pill twice a day for congestion and I had only taken one. My doc had said to try taking half or a quarter of the norel to prevent this extreme drowsiness/ sleepiness. I did this earlier this wk.but out of desperation and frustration with my allergies, I eventually took a whole pill. But even a whole pill hasn't helped my symptoms. If it did, I was too zonked to know it or care. I had no other side effects.

just on the third day and symptoms are already clearing up. My biggest problem was drainage and it has cleared up nicely.
