Quitting methadone that I've been on for 2 years. On day 4. Can't sleep at all, feeling so restless but tired. What could I do to be able to sleep?

Opioid Withdrawal: It's likely that you are going through withdrawal from the methadone. After all, it is an opioid. The symptom will likely pass in time, but I'd recommend you discuss this with your doctor. There are medications that can help ease the withdrawal symptoms. Some people also benefit from doing some deep breathing and energy tapping to ease withdrawal. ...Read more

Had a colonoscopy two days ago and ever since then I have been feeling really weak and tired? Is this normal? Also legs have been feeling restless?

Had a colonoscopy two days ago and ever since then I have been feeling really weak and tired? Is this normal? Also legs have been feeling restless?

That is unusual: Typically colonoscopy does not cause any such problems. It is possible you had too much of a bowel prep activity (? Severe diarrhea) which can cause dehyderation or electrolyte imbalance. Please hyderate your self with lots of lquids and a pinch of extra salt in your food or drink lots of soups or electrolyte solutions for a couple of days, then you should be fine. Do inform your doctor who did colo. ...Read more

I just took my 1st (3mg) of Lunesta (eszopiclone) last night. I was quick to get tired. Then I was restless all night. (3hrs sleep) do I keep taking it? I'm so tire

I just took my 1st (3mg) of Lunesta (eszopiclone) last night. I was quick to get tired. Then I was restless all night. (3hrs sleep) do I keep taking it? I'm so tire

No simple answer: Lunesta (eszopiclone) has a quick onset but fairly short duration of action & might not help maintain sleep. Also, Lunesta (eszopiclone) and Klonopin, while different chemically, act on the same benzodiazapine receptors in the brain. Tolerance or dependence on Klonopin can cross over to Lunesta (eszopiclone). Also, insomnia is a common side effect of Vyvance. You need to see a psychiatrist or sleep specialist about this. ...Read more

My legs are tired and restless I can't get comfortable and they feel like they wanna move but when I walk they feel like they want to stop?

? restless legs: If I am reading your question correctly, when you are lying down, your legs feel strange and keep you from getting you comfortable, yet when you start walking the feeling goes away. If this is the case, then you have a fairly textbook case of restless legs syndrome (rls). A neurologist should be readily able to treat this with one of the several meds that are approved and work in this condition. ...Read more

Why is it that when I take tramadol that my muscles feel restless and I feel happy and then after awhile I start to get really tired and down then I like crash and go to sleep?

Tramadol: Tramadol is a pain med that has properties of both an opiate and antidepressant. The antidepressant effect can make you anxious and the opiate effect can cause sedation and crashing.

I am waking up tired, plus fatigue during the day, all day, jerking head when I lay down plus restless body and legs, when resting, weepy at times, .

Maybe 2 things: The blue mood and fatigue make me wonder about depression; but then, you might also have insomnia, poor interests/concentration/appetite, guilty feelings, or anxiety/short fuse. The non-restful mornings make me wonder if you have a sleep disorder like either restless legs syndrome or sleep apnea. Your fp would probably be the best one to help you quickly sort out this combination of symptoms. ...Read more

Help him get to slee: First address sleep hygiene issues, making sure he gets in bed with lights down, television, cell phone and radio off. Additionally try some warm mild before bed (loaded with serotonin that will promote sleep. If he snores loudly, he may need a sleep study and his tonsils/adenoids evaluated.
He sounds like the typical adhd boy, and the melatonin can go to 3 mg/night. However i'd keep tenex (guanfacine). ...Read more
