I just recently went to a PM doctor for the first time. I was taking 10/325 Percocet every 6 hours for pain and the PM doc put me on MS Contin 15 mg every 12 hours and Flexeril 10 mg 3 times daily as needed. For the past few nights, actually since the meds change, I have been having some really strange dreams. I am dreaming about people that I haven't seen or spoken to in years. These aren't necessarily bad just strange. In one dream, I was yelling out very loudly and it felt so real, in fact I was surprised to find my hubby snoring away right next to me and not awake looking at me like I had lost my mind! 8}
I also sometimes feel as though I am not in a deep sleep and just dozing and I am waking in the middle of the night and finding it hard to go back to sleep. This has never been a problem for me. Will this change?
This dosage isn't really working for me as I have had a severe pain in my lower back all the way down to my right calf so I am thinking that either the PM doc will need to change the dosage or prescribe something for breakthrough. Any thoughts?
