    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)

    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)
    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
