Hi fellow Xyrem users:
Today was my first day on Xyrem. It tastes nasty!! Does anyone have tips on making this taste better or tolerable?
So I know I was supposed to wait until bedtime to take it but I couldn't stand the suspense and wanted to know if it would really make me sleep.
I took it about
12:30 this afternoon and no it didnt make me sleepy at all. I felt a slight bit of euphoria about
2 hours later and that lasted about
an hour or so. It's about
6:20 pm now and I just took another dose.
I am a recovering addict, my pain DR. had me on:
Fentanyl Patch (50 mcg)
Soma 350mg 4 X per day
Actiq (fentanyl lollipops) 90 per mo. (450 mcg)
Lortab 10 mg. 90 per mo.
10 per day
Phenergan 50 mg 3 X per day
Restoril 60 mg every night for sleep
plus a bunch of other meds.
It got to where none of this stuff would work for me.
My diagnosis is:
So now, I am only on Prozac, Wellbutrin XL, Phenergan, and the Xyrem. Oh yeah, the Xyrem makes me want bootie.
I do miss the Opiates and the Benzodiazepenes but I guess I just have to deal with it. Good luck to all of you~!
