Medication side effects question
I currently take flexeril, gabapentin and tramadol for back and nerve pain. I started taking these for about a month now and for the first week or two I really didnt notice anything unusual but after that I turned into a zombie. I'll sleep for 12 hours, wake up for about 3-4 hours and go right back to bed for another 6 hours. Other things have gotten worse, like depression. I've dealt with depression since My teens but it never got in the way and I never (and still don't) take anything for it. Now its like its magnified by a thousand, more than likely making My sleeping habits worse, along with absolutely no energy. My question is which of these medications is making Me feel this way. I looked on the bottle and even googled the known side effects and each of them have almost the same side effects IE May cause drowsiness, dizziness and others that all relate to My symptoms. So how do I figure out which one is causing the side effects or could all of them be contributing to them.
I've been needing to call MY NS office and getting something different and possibly get some sort of AD, but the way I've been feeling lately, I haven't made the call yet. There are other symptoms I have as well, like when I'm standing My vision gets really warped and I feel woozy and like...hmmm whats the word.....not right. I think that can be from the gabapentin.
Anyway, just curious and any feedback is welcome. My eyeballs are feeling a bit heavy now
back to the coffin.
