    FYI - Day #14 off NORCO - yippee!!

    Since I quit taking Norco, I have had severe insomnia - lasting days. Right now, it is 11 p.m. Thursday evening - I have been awake (except for 15 min cat naps) since Wednesday morning at 6 a.m. I tried hot baths, some sleep meds...everything - I just cant sleep! Its not like I'm not tired either, cuz I am.................I'm going crazy here!

    I have also noted severe pain in the lymph nodes of my neck. I have taken Tylenol and put a muscle-pain cream on them, but they still ache.

    Any suggestions for either?

    I get the sore glands all the time & have not found anything to help, but for insomnia, some of the things that help sometimes (nothing helps me for long, but if I only take one of these when I really need it and alt which one, it does help some)

    L-Trytophan
    Kava Kava
    Melatonin (does not help me, but others have found it very helpful....there's some evidence that you should avoid this if you have POTS, though)
    Valerian
    Benedryl
    Magnesium/Calcium combo
    Chamomile tea

    Good luck and congrats on staying away from the Norco for this long - I know it's been tough for you
