    My insomnia was provoked by a 'medicine cocktail', prescribed medications that were contraindicated. I just had a rough experience with Serotonin Syndrome, grateful to be alive.

  • Doxylamine succinate and severe restless legs and insomnia
    Could not sleep so took 2 doxylamine gel tablets. Got very sleepy but could not actually fall asleep. So I ended up, over the next few hours, taking 3 more. More sleepiness and more restless legs, and still couldn't sleep At All. Up the entire night but couldn't really do anything cause I was so sleepy. Maddening. Do not understand at all.
  • Lorazepam nearly killed me during cancer treatment
    Day 31 of cold turkey and I want to die. It is a roller coaster from body tics and sweats to rage and crying in one day. I felt so good the 4h day of c/t. It was like before my cancer diagnosis. My bowels are better off Lorazepam. I threw up during bowel movements from the pain. Off Lorazepam first normal bowel movement in over 2 years. Stomach so damaged by Lorazepam that I have absolutely no appetite. I force myself to eat. Neuropathy in hands nearly gone. Feet are better but slower. Lymphedema that appeared after one year on Lorazepam is now gone. I have full range of motion.
  • Zolpidem er side effects
    I was in this medicaion for 2 weeks.I had severe headache,muscular backache and a rash in one side of my body.I didn't had problems falling asleep but I had problems staying asllep.I will switch to Lunesta 3mg.
  • Lipitor and panic attack insomnia
    My doctor put me on generic lipitor my triglycerides were slightly high 158 vs 150 goal and cholesterol not bad 128/28 although my ratio is bad. After less than a week on the medicine I woke up at 3 am wide awake and unable to calm down. I had anxiety issues several years go but have been off the meds for several years, I have a lot on my mind, aging parents and mother in law, kids in college that are struggling, my wife and I are 55 in corporate America, getting pushed aside, what to do in retirement, etc..but I was keeping it all together. I have incredibly anxious since that night. Still waking up at 3 am every night. Initially lots of thoughts about my loved ones dying. Thoughts about either my wife or I living alone, these thoughts have faded. None of the issues are on my mind but I get crazy anxious and cannot be alone. I am able to fall asleep, actually fall out really hard. Wake up every night at 3 and end up very anxious by noon. No appetite, lost more than 10 lbs in 10 days. On some meds to calm down and back on the anxiety meds. I believe the Lipitor triggered the attacks. I stopped the Lipitor immediately.
  • Sleep apnea and vertigo
    Previous to Lorazepam, I was taking Mekclezine. Both makes me feel worst longer with vertigo. Usually when I fall asleep without my mouth guard, I get a serious bout of Vertigo for several days and the medications just cause more dizziness and the problem last even longer. I also find when I am under extreme stress, I acquire a bout vertigo as well. I am getting a better mouth guard made because the sleep apnea gets worse, the guard has gotten worn and my air way is getting blocked again, causes lack of oxygen and lack of oxygen causes dizziness. Which means to me one causes the other.

    Hi Sonya.

    This combinations of meds is much too sedating and could cause respiratory depression.Also, why would your Mom be on 2 benzodiazepines i.e. clonazepan and ativan.Ativan can sometimes be used to help with sleeping but it seems your Mom is taking Trazodone for that.The Hydrocodone is a pain killer but can sedate also.Further, it is addictive but if she needs ? Why not Advil.Like you, I would also be concerned with falling at her age
    i.e. broken hip etc.which could lead to her being bed ridden if she manges to get through the operation.You need another Dr.This combination is seldom prescribed for someone her age.Warmest, JT

    Sonya,
    I used to take klonopin, ativan, and hydrocodone. The ativan was only for emergencies (i.e. extreme panic attacks). I found that mixing klonopin and hydrocodone drastically changed my personality to the point where they suspected I had a severe mood or personality disorder. When I stopped this combo my personality returned to normal. I have seen the same thing happen in 100% of cases where these drugs are mixed (n=3). The symptoms it produces can resemble borderline personality disorder &/or bipolar. Basically mood swings that are disproportionate to the situation. Common sense seems to disappear. People also seemed to think I was being disingenuous but in reality I was too confused to remain consistent. I have never taken trazadone but my sister took it mixed with klonopin and it would knock her out for a long time, sometimes an entire day. Hope that helps a little. All the best to you and your mother.
