Most of my pain meds make me sleepy. Not drop to the ground fall asleep effects. However I can nap at just the suggestion of a nap lol
I use the word nap lightly. A nap for me can turn into a 2 to 3 hr sleep..... sigh
I have major issues waking up in the AM. Then after I FORCE myself out of bed, the first 2 to 3 hrs are spent with me talking myself OUT of going back to bed again (|:
To avoid having any of these experiences I need from 9 to 10 hrs of sleep a night.
Most pain meds have a sleepy effect. I am not cutting back on them, as when I am awake I have a life again - finally!
Anyone else ? What do you do about it :??
