### vSpace in tablecell comes after following text

Hi,

I try in to do something like this within a p-type table cell

{\vspace{3pt}}\begin{small}\emph{\glsentryuseri{##1}}\end{small}

(I use the glossaries package, thats where \glsentryuseri comes from). However the Space created by vspace ends up after the first line of the text from inside the small-block. I would like to create the space before the paragraph. The "{}" arround vspace was an attempt to force the space before the text. The problem might be related to the fact that i try to insert hte vspace within a glossary styledefinition and that i have no idea of expansion order/control.

Greetings and thanks in advance Ted

Shows the misplaced spacing. I would like the gap between "band" and "my long..." instead of between "my long..." and "ipsum dolor sit ..." where it is at the moment
