Why is it when I take any kind of pain pill.It wakes me up.Can't sleep expecally Narco and oxycodone
I can't tell you why. You should see freaked out anestesitists because I'm still talking. Everybody else in the gurney line is sound asleep- and i see my surgeon and say, "Hi." Now that I'm older-70-I go to sleep like a good girl-but drowsy meds don't work that way. At least you aren't alone.
I can explain part of it. Normally our brains have a natural system of relieving pain, the neurotransmitters send signal over to the receptor sites, and then when enough signal is produced, the receptors signal for small amounts of the brain's own opiate to be trickled in. The brain tries to keep you from getting dependent on even the natural opiate, so it won't produce enougn to always get rid of all pain. Then the body figures out it likes the opiate, whether it is natural or rx and it craves more, and the opiate helps you push past the point where you should rest. If you regularly take opiate, the body wants even more, so it builds tolerance, one of the signs you are becoming tolerant, is that the opiate gives you energy and makes you do more than you should. Usually people who first start taking opiates get sleepy, as tolerance grows, they beome energized on opiates. Each psons specific brain chemistry also could produce this, the same way some hallucinate on ambien and most don't.

Is it okay to combine these (2) meds? diphenhydramine (simply sleep pills) and oxycodone (percocet)?
