My question is, does norco keep anyone else up at night? I have missed up to 3 nights of sleep in a row, only to become a sleepless, norco-fueled zombie the next day. I thought it put most people to sleep but it gives me this crazy, I can do anything energy. Which lands me in the bathroom at 1:30 am drawing and messing around on the phone, away from my super-light-sleeping boyfriend. So... Any other norcozombies out there with any insight as to why we are affected in this way?
Any opiate pain medication, such as Norco, can cause euphoria, sleepiness, or that crazy energy you speak of. Do you find yourself behaving like a Chatty-Cathy doll, talking constantly?
You may want to take it only during the day, then lay off of it about four hours before bedtime. If your pain gets bad at night try Ibuprofen.
I wish you ZZZZ's!
The way different opiate like medication effect people (such as Norco) is quite individual. It is quite possible that you react to Norco this way. I would discuss it with your physician so that he/she can try something that works better for you as not getting sufficient sleep is not at all ideal.
Be open with your Dr. if you are not getting good results ask to be referred to a pain management specialist as they have more experience with configuring and changing up your pain management treatment plan to get the optimal results.
