Perhaps a dumb question, but: lets say I'm going to have a procedure done that requires local anesthetic (just a numbing shot, pretty much). Is it a bad idea/dangerous/whatever to take a Vicodin beforehand? Will the Vicodin help with the pain of the procedure at all, since local anesthetic isn't enough?

I am in pain now and will be until after the procedure (and probably for a bit afterward) so I'm not just taking it for the pain that will occur during the procedure. More like, I have to take it so it's bearable for me to function.
