They gave me Ambien CR while I was hospitalized last year and I am addicted to the darn stuff. No one said it could harm my liver. The prescription is only for 6.5 mgm but I find when I try to wean myself off all I do is stay awake all night and feel like a zombie in the morning. Occasionally I will take a Tylenol PM but then I read that Tylenol is bad on the liver.
I'm weaning off prednisone, down to 10 mgm but it still gives me insomnia.
Have you tried drinking Chamomile tea? That helps some.
Diagnosed with ulcerative proctitis in 1998 in hospital
Hospitalized (2nd time) in May 2008 for ten days.
Remission Nov 08 thru May of 09.
Slowly coming out of flare. Meds: Colazal (6 per day), prednisone 10 mgm and tapering weekly, Cort enema nightly, Canasa in morning, Benicar 20 mg for BP, flaxseed oil 3 x a day, fishoil 2 x a day, probiotic 3 x a day, calcium with D 1x a day and multivitamin.
Doctor had me on 100 mgm of 6MP which drastically lowered my white count. Now off the 6MP pending results of repeat white count. UGH.
