2 Replies RSS Share
I am taking 10 mg of Percocet, 4 mg of Xanax and 50 mg of Trazodone and can’t sleep. Should I take 100 mg of Trazodone at night? Also, is Meloxicam used as a sleep aid? ## I am taking percoset, Xanax and trazadone thru the day. Is this ok ## Seems to be a potentially dangerous mixture but if your doctor is monitoring you then I guess it should be okay. I just wonder how you stay awake taking all of that!?

Stopped medrol pack early
18 Replies RSS Share
I went to the ER on Christmas due to an unknown allergic reaction to some sort of food I ate. After all was said and done, I was given a prescription for a 4mg Medrol dose pack, one for benadryl and one for zantac (explained to me as a catalyst for the other two medications). I continued dosage as instructed through the third day. The fourth day, I took the before breakfast dose and none others. The entire time on the medrol, I had EXTREME (6 bottles of water in 2 hours) thirst, woke up several times a night to urinate, elevated bp and heart rate. I was anxious, wired, my chest was tight, my face was burning red, I was sweating significantly more than normal, and my personality was gone. I said maybe 20 words total the days I was on it, and my brain felt empty. It was very hard to conce...
