I've taking Lortab elixir /Hydrocododone liquid -- 10 ml every 4 to 6 hours -- to manage pain from four back surgeries over the past 5+ years. When I was told recently that the Tylenol on the Lortab was starting to affect my liver, I decided to stop taking all pain medications, a little over 10 days ago. The first 6 days, I replaced the liquid lortab with 2 Vicodin pills a day, the next two days with one pill a day, and then I stopped cold turkey two days ago.
All of my side effects remain the same since the first day. Nothing has changed much; except I cannot sleep due to the restlessness on my legs, arms and hands.
My doctor prescribed me Clonidine (0.1 ml 3x a day) to help with the sypmtoms and Ambien to go to sleep ans Xanas to settle me dowqn. Neither medicie has done the job. HWen I taken, I wak around the house like a drunk zombie, Untel the exhaustion overtakes me.
Do any of you know of any medicines that I can ask my doctor to prescribe me to manage this restlessness and immsonia? I cannot function like this at work
