I could not stay on my right leg for more than few hours because of a ruptured disc. Due to the pain I could not sleep as well. For six days I have been taking Davocet-N 100, and I feel much better. I took two tablets the first day, and one each day thereafter. I also take other medicines and it has not affected me negatively.
