What in the world did my dentist twin with the vicodin? I was floating in a timeless void.....

I can't remember the name of the second drug that my dentist gave to me with Vicodin following my wisdom tooth extraction, and I suspect it might been what hurtled me into an abyss beyond the reach of time, concepts digestible by the human brain, any higher synaptic functions, or the vital organs' basic need for sustenance. So what was it?

So I got A singular wisdom tooth out last week,
which took a grand total of 1'30" to remove,
and my dentist, in sending me home with my much-anticipated Vicodin prescription, also gave me a prescript for 2 tablets of something else, which he mysteriously assured me would "make [me] more succeptible to the Vicodin".
3 pm, tooth out.
4 pm, at home with Deadwood Season 2, took 1 Vic and the other pill, passed the fuck out promptly.
8 pm, my brother told me to roll over (was sleeping on the couch in the living room), found I would do this without any verbal or physical response otherwise.
8:05 pm - 8:30 pm, my family rolls me around the living room floor by telling me to do so, which I apparently just kind of did. Would also not-really-wake-up now and again and ask where "the noise" was coming from.
Midnight, groggily wake up, take 1 more Vic and the OTHER THING, pass the fuck back out.
8 am, wake up briefly, absolutely no pain or swelling or bleeding, and can't really rouse myself.
I did NOT take any more of either medicine, but literally could not stay awake for more than 5 minutes until 8 pm that night....That's 28 hours of pure unconsciousness, where there was no past, present or future, not to mention id ego superego God food movies or drug abuse; those last 14 hours should have been fully beyond the potentcy of the second dose (12 am - 6 am).
So...what the heck happened? I can't remember the name of the other drug, and threw the prescription away once I'd taken the second (final) dose of it.
Does this coma have anything to do with whatever that might have been? Am I just doomed to be a zombie whenever I have to take Vicodin? Or what?
