I have chronic lower back pain, and I have been presribed Tramadol. I take it 50mg 3 times a day, I also take with it 1 tylenol or advil which is just like ultracet. I works ok. So I went back to the doctor and he sent me out for and xray. He prescribed Cyclobenzaprine 5mg 3 times a day. That didnt work at all, then I asked if he could prescribe me something stronger Soma 350mg at bedtime. And stop the tramadol, I can not take most of these scripts while working except the tramadol. I have not slept in 5days....Soma at first it makes you tired then in bed my heart just is pumping. But I check my blood pressure and I am fine. I will stop this medication!!! I already went through this 2-3yrs ago xray, mri and painmanagement. I bought an inversion table and go to the chiropractor. I am just loosing it.
4yrs prior I had the heart thing while sleeping before any meds, went to the doctor had ultrasound on my heart and a couple of other tests. My heart is fine! I have anxiety I will not get into that but, he has me on clonazepam 1 mg 4 times a day and vyvanse 50mg 1 once a day andddd doxepine for sleeping. So I was unable to take the tramadol with the Cyclobenzaprine. Anyway hear I am without any sleep trying to get some sleep. And I am not suppose to just stop taking certain meds, but I will not take the Cyclobenzaprine tonite. The vyvanse I know gives you a boost and could cause me not to sleep. But I have been on the Vyvanse and clonazapam for 2 yrs so it must not be that. I think!!! I hope I get to sleep tonite. Sorry if this does not make complete sense you can see why.
