Ok day 3 of taking my newly prescribed medication for my severe longterm pain, its called Tapentodol, it’s an Opioid and I take 100mg twice a day.
Have noticed a slight reduction in pain in my hands and feet.
Constant drowsiness, lack of attention, Confusion, incresed forgetfullness
Constant tiredness & fatigue
Sleeping problems are back
More frequent hot flushes
feeling more unsteady
Having quite a few of what I would call absences, disorientation
Itching all over
So I will see if symptoms improve over the weekend, if they do then good, if not first stop will be a visit to the chemist to see the pharmacist.
just taken me 1 hr 15 mins to write todays blog
On the plus side though:
I woke up this morning so obviously thats good
Enjoyed my morning coffee
Sense of humour still seems to be working
