Mike, ask your doc about
Trazodone for sleep. It's working for both David and I--50 mg at bedtime (not together -
) Last Fri. night, I actually slept 9 hours straight. It's been almost 9 mos. since I did that. Usually I'm up 2-3 x, but that's a lot better than every hour or two.
I agree about not taking the lorazepam/Ativan if the anxiety is not constant.
I didn't know that ascites meds can't be taken if going on the treatment. I reduced mine to twice a week, but will have to stop them altogether.
There's an immune disease (circulation disorder) called Raynaud's. The fingers and sometimes toes turn white, blue, and red when it's cold. I was diagnosed with this about 25 years ago in an ER (you know how cold they keep those places!) I had never noticed it prior to that time. Have your digits stayed white or turned blue and red? Are they back to normal now?
If you have to stop taking the quinine, perhaps there is something else you can try for leg cramps.
