I tried that new medication again on Friday night. Between trying it Monday night for the first time, and then again on Friday evening I’ve spent just about the whole week feeling wiped out.
I fell asleep on the couch Friday night. I got up in the middle of the night – my eyes so blurry and dry I could barely see. The medication had made me feel so dizzy, woozy and nauseated. It was terrible. I went back to sleep in my bedroom this time round and didn’t wake up until two in the afternoon.
I managed to get up, check my email and spend a bit of time with my husband before I had to lie down on the couch again. My head was just spinning. I almost wished that I’d partied too hard the night before because at least I’d have done something perhaps worth feeling so awful for. Geez … take a pill and feel awful for 24 or more hours? No thanks!
Chris and I watched a movie and then I fell asleep on the couch again by seven thirty in the evening. Wow, I was up for a just a bit more than 5 hours!
I woke up at about 10 pm and we had a very late dinner.
Of course I wasn’t so tired anymore but I still felt dragged out, and I’d get waves of nausea every now and then.
Chris’ mom must have called sometime while I was passed out on the couch Saturday evening. He must have told her I had taken a marijuana pill. I guess he didn’t mention, or she didn’t hear him say that it’s a synthetic form of the drug because he later told me that she was really happy that i was on a “natural” medication. Well … good for her for being so supportive and progressive, but I think if it was natural I wouldn’t have felt so bad for such a long time!
As you can see I haven’t spent much time posting on this site this week. I think the medicine wore off by Sunday but I’ve just had a bad week. Topped it off with yet another medical test Wednesday morning! I’m so tired of medical tests.
I’m really not sure that I want to give this medication a third try.
Has anyone else tried Nabilone? The synthetic marijuana capsule? If so, did it make you feel so dragged out?
