After 6 hours I get nauseous and a migraine and throw up.
Started out with Prozac only, that was discontinued, other RX added and symptoms have become increasingly worse. Could it be a paradoxical reaction to one of the drugs?
I go to be with many meds, most actually cause sleepiness.6X's out of 10, I fall asleep immediately. Wake up an average or 4X's a night. I go to get a snack, due to a tongue disorder. I have terrible tastes and go for a sweet like a cookie. Get in bed and see cookie in the morning about 60% of the time. (Tragic if no cookies!) Wake up sleepy. Would roll over and fall back to sleep if not for Provigil, with some help from Concerta. Up and awake within 10 minutes. NOW with meds, increased body shaking and falling asleep when standing-pass out etc...Have no idea why all of a sudden. Diagnosis Narcolepsy. (I researched and maybe Oxyplexy?) Due for new sleep study 12/26/2013
Can you answer these questions (what is this?):
- Is taking 1.5 or 2 mg lorazepam while on suboxone dangerous, suboxone is being used for opaite dependence and pain and lorazepam is used for anxiety
I am taking about 20 to 22 MG of suboxone a day but I also take 2 mg of Lorazepam a day for anxiety, is it dangerous to do so. I do not exceed the doses mentioned at all.
- Why do i keep getting multiple muscle tears from minimal exertion
I keep getting muscle tears when using low force, like raising my leg for a leg kick( partial calf tear), pushing a screwdriver to remove a screw ( partial bicep tear), running on the treadmill (partial calf tear), even a hug which resulted in a pec tear.
- Has anyone out there on risperdal been able to find a remedy for the fatigue, lethargy and tiredness that risperdal causes?
I am unable to convince the doctor that I do not have a mental illness and I am supervised by the courts to take the risperdal consta injections.
