So sick

I've felt sick from the moment I got up this morning, and I currently have really bad stomach cramps.

I also increased the Lofepramine to three times a day , but I don't think the two are connected.

I think the nausea is because I didn't take the early slow release pills till 8am. Usually, I wake up around 5 or 6, just long enough to go to the loo and take those pills. Then I go back to sleep till around 8. I think that ordinarily gives the sickness time to go down, but because I didn't wake up, it meant I could only leave an hour after taking them before I needed to get up (to stop the neck pressure kicking off).

I felt sick immediately, but thought some food might help. And of course I had to take all my other meds, including the first morning dose of Lofepramine. Eating did seem to reduce the nausea; it got bad again a few hours later and eating some lunch helped, though the last thing I felt like doing was eating.

Since lunch and the middle Lofepramine of the day, I've developed really bad stomach cramps. I'm now on the lactose-free Lofep, so it can't be that. I'm hoping it's just hormonal, but I don't know.

I'm also getting the kind of falling-asleep-panic-attacks that I usually get at night. I know that's down to the slow release morph, because it starts an hour or so after taking it (5pm) and goes on all evening. So today I get it all day and all night long.

If this keeps happening, I'm going to have to set an alarm for taking the early pills, but I'd really rather not.
