I very recently had a change in my pain medication to better help manage my pain. I was switched from my normal vicodin to dilaudid. I have been hesitant on taking anything stronger for a while now, but reluctantly agreed to try the dilaudid for a month. The first few days were ok, no noticeable side affects. Then the problems started. I was not breathing normally and was feeling very weak.
I made an appointment same day and went back to my Dr office. After a long day of being upset and concerned about breathing normal again, I finally was feeling better after undergoing some care at the Drs.
My question now is why would they want to put me on a medication that causes severe breathing problems, when I have obstructive sleep apnea? I’m not putting any names or even what office it was at, but can you not kill me please! And EPIC FAIL on my pharmacist for not seeing the potential for problems.
I will be posting a lot more and catching up on things that this whole ordeal has put into disarray.
