And thank you for giving me something to look forward to
My anxiety meds already give me short term memory issues LOL.
Day 4: (for the record, this is mainly for me, and so I can submit the info to the drug company, my pharmacy and my dr. as there's been no studies done on people with existing psychiatric issues)
I ended up taking the 2nd pill at 6:45 ( 11hr after the first one). That was a mistake.
By 7:50 I was in a full blown panic attack. It eased in a normal amount of time. I was going to head to bed, but ended up playing with kitties and went to bed feeling fine at 11...took my pain meds, and sleeping aids.
Here's the part I really don't like:
I woke up at 4:45am or so, because..(WARNING: Too much info for some) I felt like I had lost control of my bladder. While I did not lose complete control, I lost enough to have to change my underwear
I felt completely fine aside from that issue.
I ended up staying up till 6, took my morning pills then and went back to bed till 9. Am up now, feel fine, and I took my morning pill at 6.... I have a bit of a headache, but not something I would blame on the meds.
So aside from the issues after I took the 2nd pill, yesterday was a good day.
Now, the incontinence issue has me concerned....but we'll see if it happens again. Truth be told, I have had two children, one of which was 11lbs (normal delivery with forceps)....I'm now in my early 30's and my bladder control is not great to begin with...(ex. the heavy coughing issue....you know what I mean). I did have one
accident in my mid-late 20's at nighttime, but I believe it was due to the amount of meds I was on, the types, and they caused me to sleep thru the urge.
I also note that one other person said their husband had issues like this as well. It is definately needing to be reported to the drug company, which I will be filling out the form later today (for myself obviously).
Another concern, and maybe the folks that have been on it can say....Today is my day 5. Day 1-3 I felt less urge to smoke.... Yesterday and even now, I'm feeling stronger urges to smoke.
Did that happen to anyone else?
I'm ordering the book by Alen Carr today, so hopefully it will be here by Monday and will help along with the meds.
