My partner has peripheral neuropathy. While I don't doubt he's in alot of pain, he's on 12 separate medications a day. I worry he's addicted and the meds will kill him first. He gets aggressive when I talk about it, says he needs them all. Methodone (for pain apparently, he's never been a user), Valium, Tramal, Lasix, Anetenex, Gabapentin, Prednisone..... the list goes on. I've googled most of them, some seem unrelated. He argues some counteract other's side effects. I'm at my wits ends. He's unreasonable, uses his sickness as excuse for everything, says he's dying. Aaaghggh! His eyes literally roll around in his head some days and he's searching for things on the floor that aren't there and nods off, rambles on with rubbish I don't understand, then snaps out of it. I hate watching it. I hate drugs so its hard to see. He's unsociable and its just not the guy I fell in love with and i feel sad. I can't watch this **** any more. Do I put up with it? I'm trying to find out if he needs to be on all these drugs. I wish he'd try with other therapies but he says they don't work, but surely they could help and he could get rid of at least 1/2 his medication. Sometimes its embaressing to go out in public as he gets intolerant of crowded spaces. What on earth do i do?Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
