Lunatone, my understanding is that this is due to the large amounts of acetaminophen present in the tablets.  It causes GI problems as well as potential liver damage over the long term.

The acetaminophen can be removed fairly easily.

But I do appreciate the warning and will definitely keep it in mind if I decide to go this route.

The acetaminophen is responsible for liver risk but the constipation and other GI affects are actually due to the opioid. Acetaminophen, while not GI side effect-free for everyone, is probably THE best tolerated pain medications in terms of the gastrointestinal system. More so than opiates, steroids, and NSAIDS

It's tough my friend. I'm not by any means putting your idea down. Best luck and let us know how things are going.

Sometimes, when I'm home alone, I fill my bathtub with tomato sauce and pretend I'm a meatball.
