First off I think that I am recovering fairly well from my ACDF on Sept 3. I am two weeks into recovery and things keep 'waking up'. The wide spread spasms into my legs, back and arms are very annoying and sleeping is more of a chore than a pleasure. I saw my PM doctor today and he decide to wait on putting me back on the Nucynta (which was working well before the tendon tore) and now is placing me on Zonegran for assistance in sleeping and hopefully will extend thru the next day to give some relief of the nerve pain I have that is increasing daily. I just really wanted to ask if anyone has taken this drug and what side effects they had. I am looking forward to the sleepiness and don't see that being a problem since I am not allowed to return to work until Nov at the earilest.
Thanks everyone and hopefully everyone else is in the bed sleeping right now.
