I hope to figure out which of my medications is causing me to wake up very tired and with major brain fog. The fog clears after an hour or more for much of the day and then it appears again and worsens after dinner (before I've even taken my bedtime meds). As I sit here after midnight, I hope that this post makes some sense.
If you have any personal experience with this or other insights, I'd sure appreciate it. I take Oxycotin 20 mg 4 per day and Oxycodone 5mg 4 per day. At bedtime, I take Neurontin (also called Gabepentin) 300mg 2 per night, and Flexiril 10mg 1 per night.
Another clue that my meds have changed me over the last two years since I've been on these medications is - reading. I used to read 1-2 books per week in the evenings and now I don't read books because I fall asleep quickly. All I read at night now is a few websites and those I often will fall asleep while reading too.
Just cutting out one med and then another isn't practical or easy to do, but with some clue as to which one might be causing it, I'll speak with my doctor about cutting that one out. He is nearing retirement age and I hesitate to ask him what I am asking all of you because I am concerned he'll just want to start making wholesale changes and that makes me nervous. I am in pain daily or obviously I would not be on these meds.
Thanks in advance. I really appreciate it!
