Hey all, I'm kind of at a loss for what to do about pain medication due to terrible side effects. I don't take pain meds everyday, but when I do take either oxycodone or hydrocodone, I get insomnia and then sleep paralysis. Always. The sleep paralysis is worse than the pain because it's so terrifying. The strange thing is, I can take a pill at 3pm and then experience the sleep paralysis at 11pm. I really don't know what I'm supposed to do to achieve some sort of pain relief because I'm almost getting to the point where I need to take pain medication more often than not. This hasn't been going on forever, only in the last year did I start to experience these side effects. Anyone have any advice? Anyone experience similar side effects?
Thanks for reading
