It's the tramadol; try not

It's the tramadol; try not taking any tramadol after 1 or 2 pm and see if it helps. If I took my last dose around lunch, then I would have no problems, any later than that and I would have difficulty sleeping, unless I was really, really tired.

Or try skipping it entirely for a few days if you can. If you do discover that's the problem, talk to your doc about upping your darvocet instead or replacing it entirely with a different med.

Of course, it it does make you feel better, than certianly keep taking it!

medication's and sleepness

HI,There,i found that when i took co-drydamol and amitripline,i dont sleep,it give's me a buzz,and im awake all night,and in the morning ,god i feel like death,im am starting to come off my med's and my energy has just dropped,im not getting that "buzz" i am on the fentynl patches 25mg,but cutting down to 12 mg,i don't like the side effect's,that is why i decided to gradully come off the med's.although im awaiting more surgery,u.k waitng list's are long. Try not to take your med's to close to your bed time,

How Long

have you been on these meds? Sometimes you just need to adjust to them if they are new. Everyone has such different chemistry that it would be hard to say what might not keep you awake. I know that demerol usually makes me sleep but it may be the total opposite for you. try talking to your doc and see if he has any suggestions. Good luck and please keep us posted.
