... found Norco to work fairly well with only two side effects. 1: really itchy and flaky scalp (never had this until I took norco)
2: severe insomnia. I take max 3 norco 10/325 a day. I've tried taking my last dose at 7pm but by midnight, 1am I start feeling withdrawal systems of bone pain and restlessness. If I take norco just before bed around 11pm, I'm usually wide awake until at least 3am or later. Then I crash from exhaustion and sleep until noon. My internal clock is completely broken.
I've tried sleep aids, melatonin, herbal teas, listening to meditation, etc etc. NOTHING seems to help me get to sleep.
Does anyone have any useful suggestions? I'm forced to consider trying other pain meds but I'm afraid of what those side effects will be. As I stated earlier, I don't react well to most medicine. I should note I do take a 0.25mg Xanax with my norco for anxiety due to the pain (two spinal surgeries plus 5 other discs that are degenerative. ) thanks for taking the time to read and respond
