I don't like it.
It dulls the pain, which is nice because then I don't have to feel it. And the pain can be distracting, at best. But I also don't know very well whether I actually still have a problem or not. I haven't seen or felt any stones pass. I still feel pressure from time to time but I can't be sure if that's just me psyching myself out or if it's the real thing.
Friday, after I took the Vike for the first time, I slept a long time and I had some really trippy dreams. Tonight, I took another one and I can't fall asleep. The Wife went to bed nearly two hours ago and I was tossing and turning and wide awake. Granted, it's still only quarter to ten and I don't have to be up for another eight hours, so I shouldn't be too frustrated.
Maybe the dosage isn't enough to induce sleep. Of course, it's not intended to be a sleep aid; it's supposed to be a painkiller with drowsiness as a prominent side-effect. But I'm certainly not experiencing any euphoria or deriving any pleasure from the drug; at best, like I said above, it dulls the pain from the kidney stone (assuming I still even have it, which as of right now I have no good idea one way or the other).
