so the side effects for both spasticity drugs are like the disease itself – totally inconsistent! They both cause unbelievable drowsiness, in fact, a friend used to try to encourage me to take naps during the day; he’d be happy to know that sometimes these days i take naps by force – not really because i want to. so anways, i’m on 2 medications (1 of them is 2mg 3x a day – how powerful do u think that
is!) and I take them both at 8am, 4 pm and midnite. when i take the 8am dose – i’ve already started working and it’s unreal just how sleepy i get SOME
days. On those days, the drowsiness kicks me in the face around 9 – 9:30 – i always fight thru it and by 10:00, i’m good. when i take it at 4? NOTHING – ABSOULTELY NOTHING
!!!! cept for the time on the truck in Miami carnival and i was bepin like fus time (nodding off like the first time ever)!
well at midnite, it’s no biggie because 9x out of 10, i’m already in the bed!
Saturday nite, De ParangSide had their kick off to parang season and of course i was at the fete at midnite when my handy dandy alarm went off. i was good for a while and then here comes the drowsiness. Now falling asleep at home is 1 thing, dozing in the middle of a party? totally nother story!!! but it was unbelievable and i couldn’t fight it…so what did i do? i had to slink off to the back of the place, hide in a corner and sleep for about 1/2 hr! when i was done, i woke up and continued partying like nothing had happened.
there is no rhyme or reason to when I’ll be sleepy and for how long. it’s crazy!
