    That's hard to say since everyone reacts differently to medications.  For example, I don't sedate easily so medications that put most people to sleep don't seem to affect me at all.  If your pain med is making you sleepy or affecting your cognitive functioning, tell your doctor.  Your doctor may need to try you on different medications and different dosages to find which will give you the most pain relief without the unpleasant side effects.
