  • Sleep paralysis while on medrol and norco
    On my 5th day of my dose pack about an hour after taking medrol and a norco I experienced sleep paralysis for the first time. This is the 3rd dose pack in 2 months and I just switched back to norco from Ultram the same day I started the latest dose pack. I felt unusually sleepy before taking my bedtime dose, but felt awake shortly after taking it. My sleep habits have been fluctuating due to sciatic pain which is why I am prescribed this medication.
  • Heavy sweating during sleep
    Pain killers like Tylenol 3, vicodin 20 years, Valium and Soma 12 years. Sweat heavy during sleep.
  • Seizure patient was on depakote for 16 years now on keppra 1500 mg.
    I am 28 years old and been off depakote for 5 months. I started keppra to control my seizure disorder, which works great. But for the past year I have developed osteoarthritis in my thoracic, si joints, and lumbar. I get alot of muscle hypersensitivity and pain. Can any of this be due to long term effects of seizure meds?
  • Prednisone mixed results-it lets me breath (1 response)
    have been on prednisone now for 3 years straight. Am taking 30mg a day just to breath. every time i have tried to taper off i have ended up in the emergency room unable to breath. That has been 7 times in the last year. I am 49 years old and was in good health 3-4 years ago. got a cough and it has been down hill.Prednisone worked great at first but then it starts to destroy the body.Had nasal passage surgery(waste of time)have broken many ribs from coughing.painful.when you are on prednisone your body takes 3-5 times longer to heal.craked tailbone from a slip. have seen over 12 doctors.reasonable gueswork. My best doc which is mine says do you want to suffocate to death or let your body try and fix itself if it can. im not for suffocation at all. Just a good medicine to counter the angriness of the steroid. Any ideas i am all ears. oh ya my eyes are starting to go and my joints as well
  • Xanax bed wetting will it stop and do i wear diapers or die (1 response)
    I am on the very edge of crazy. So starting this is pushing ne way over. I'm 49 for crap sakes. I am so tired of the pain in my body and I am just tired, this is the last slap I can't anymore. Naturally alcohol I am sure is just about the end game along with cuts.
    Just want to bleed out and not hurt anymore and be so scared to leave my house or sleep. I just want to sleep forever.

  • From this study (2 weeks ago):

  • I took hydrocodone for about a week. I had a skiing accident in which I sprained my neck, bruised my ribs and a few other bumps and scrapes. The accident happened on January 4th, diagnosed my issues on the 6th and that's when I first started taking them (every four hours for pain). I used my last one on the 10th and since then every time I have defecated. The blood darkens the toilet bowl and I also have it on the toilet paper when I wipe as well. After each bathroom visit I am extremely fatigued (no constipation involved). Last night for example I did my business, felt exhausted after that, so I laid down hoping for maybe a 30 minute nap. I ended up not waking up for about another 4 hours. About 4 times during that my friends attempted to wake me up (shaking and everything) and I never came back to. They said I responded but I do not remember any of these occasions ever happening. I'm just curious as to if this is due to the after effects of the pills or if I have something bigger I should be worrying about. Please help. Thank you!
