I have an issue with Codeine. When I was in the military they used to give us Tylenol with Codeine for pain and it turns out that it sets up my very mild heart murmur.
I guess it shouldnt be surprising that a lot of us have atypical reactions to drugs considering this illness is all about
not conforming to medical norms
LJ - they put me on Ambien because nothing else was fixing my insomnia. It has negatives, but so far I have managed in trade for a bit of sleep. The main issue is that when I am up, there is no one home even if you get me to move. I walk into walls etc, going to the bathroom. i had to give up benadryl as it does nothing except completely dry out my head. Do you mind telling me what issues you had with the Ambien.
I was up at 5 am again today - started thinking we need a middle of the night chat room.
