If I want them to: Sometimes they do and sometimes they don't. If it is "sedation" idea is you breathe. For general anesthesia u can be breathing with or without support. Think of a boxer knocked out in the ring breathing but people slapping his face and he doesn't wake up.

I wouldn't: I'd try Gabapentin or Lyrica (pregabalin) plus an antidepressant. I'd consider the implantable stimulators. I have seen patients have pain or frequency disappear. Urologist or pain physician would put them in. Norco long term will make pain worse and doesn't work for neuropathic pain anyway.

Lots: Narcotics don't work we'll for sciatic pain anyway so even more reason to want something else. Drugs to treat depression and others like Lyrica (pregabalin) and Gabapentin work great for this neuropathic pain. Gabapentin is a slow titration up because it can be sedating until your body gets used to it.
