Spine is correct....It could be any, or all of the meds....Especially the "cocktail" effect of them all together.
How long have you been on these meds? Typically, one's body will adjust over time and some of what you describe will wear off. However, what you're feeling may not be just the meds, but also some effects of your condition(s). Once I got on a daily regimen of pain meds, the days of me waking up and feeling refreshed and ready to go, were over. Some days, I'm not sure what's worse....My condition(s) or the meds. But, I realize that the meds are a necessary evil and permit me to do many things that I wouldn't be able to do otherwise.
