I am currently on a lot of prescription drugs for my MS. One of the drugs that I use to fall asleep is called Lorazepam (SubLingual). You see, I LOVE falling asleep on it because I only need to put it under my tongue, and in less than 20 minutes, I will be totally asleep for the evening no matter what was racing around my mind.

You see, I’m on a cocktail of prescription meds because of my MS and it can be very difficult to fall asleep when I start thinking about my life today. I’m not too happy about it to be perfectly honest. So, instead of just laying in bed at night, I sometimes use Lorazepam to fall asleep, but I really don’t like having to do that. And I was getting ready for bed when I remembered that I had bought some indica. to try instead.

Now it may not sound like a big deal, but while using Cannabis all day, everyday to help with my pain, I’m usually using a strain that is Sativa. I use Sativa during the day to help me stay awake. Last night was a very different story! Last might I rolled myself up a joint of a strain that was a very heavy Indica and smoked that just before bed, and it worked!

No pharmaceuticals were used to get me to sleep last night, and I am soooo happy because of it! I think I’m going to start doing that a lot more often!

After my busy day yesterday, I was absolutely drained of all energy, but because my mind starts to race at night while reviewing my day, I had a feeling it would take a while to fall asleep. Since it was so busy, there was a lot to get caught up in reviewing to make sure that I actually fully accomplished everything I had set out to get done.

Thankfully one of the things I had to do was to get my medication from the pharmacy after I saw my doctor. This meant getting refills for the ones I was out of as well. One of those was Lorazepam, so as soon as I got home and finished the calls I had started earlier, I dropped one Lorazepam under my tongue and BAM! I was out. I even managed to also sleep in!

Polypharmacy by Neil Blake

    I was doing some of my daily reading yesterday morning in Flipboard when I came upon an article with a title of the exact same question i’d Been asking myself, “Are MS Patients Using Too Many Medications?“. In the very first sentence it also introduces a new to me word, “Polypharmacy”,  that I’d never heard before but could totally and instantly relate to for the exact reason that Is also mentioned in the title, my MS. I haven’t quite finished reading it yet, as I wanted to write this and get it posted as soon as I could to hopefully start building a bit more of an audience, but am definitely going back to finish reading it.
