the pain i have is with me almost continually. the medications i take makes me so sleepy i have actually fell aspeed at the wheel, going to work in the mornings. i cannot work unless i take the pain medications to keep my pain down to a tolerable level. it really scares me to think of not being able to work at all. my doctor has me on lexapro for an antidepressant, methadone 10 Mg.3 times daily, lortab 7.5 Mg. 2 tablets 3 times daily. norvasc 10 Mg. for raynauds,and plaquenil for lupus. then when i told my doctor i was falling asleep at the wheel he prscribed dexedrine 10 Mg. 3 times daily so i could stay alert. I need information on pain medications that do not make you sleepy. i have tried alot of different pain medications. the ones i'm on seems to work the best for me. i am very sensitive to medications that make you sleepy. does anyone have some suggestions. the duke.
