I have severe lower back pain, and have been prescribed a litany of muscle relaxers and narcotics; is Roxicodone a strong drug, and what are its side effects? Any problems with taking it with high blood pressure? Does it cause lethargic side effect and make it hard to get out of bed? I work long hours, and will only take something that relieves my pain but allows me to be alert and rise from sleep. thank you for your assistance.
