General Satisfaction score :
Treato analyzes billions of patient discussions to understand what patients are saying about their experience with regard to their treatments, diseases and side effects. Treato algorithmically identifies patients' positive experiences about medications within their Web posts, for example acne that cleared up, high blood pressure that was reduced, a certain drug that "worked", and so forth. Treato aggregates all of these discussions to calculate how many positive patient posts each medication received, relative to other drugs. Note that positive patient posts about medications are always aggregated in relation to a specific condition, since the same medication may be used for more than one condition.

hi I'm Adriana I am 15 years old and well the dc gave me hydros to take my pain away from surgery I just had and well the 2nd night I started having nightmares ?! and well it's been a week and well the dreams get more and more advance now I will wake up but I can't move ? & ill stay like that for abt. 8mnts w. out moving or talking until I snap out of it .. and during the day my moods change and I really need these pills cuz of the pain but the side affects are just to crazy and well I don't mind a few bad dreams here and there but I hear voices when I wake up , I mean the dreams are bloody murder dreams I wake up scared and my heart rate is off the charts .. but I say the worst part abt. hydros is sometimes when you wake up you stay in shock you can't move or talk and your hallucinating almost like a cheap high .. but many ppl are different I'm just saying what iv experienced ..

Talk to the doctor who prescribed the pills. There are a lot of pain medications and people react differently to them. There could be a different class of medication or even dosage of the same medication that don't cause these side effects. The important thing is to talk to your doctor.

Sleep paralysis is a side effect of narcotics. It is a less likely side effect but does happen more than you think.
I love how people try to diagnose you with narcolepsy over the Internet.

the reason you cant move after a dream is because while you are sleeping you body makes chemicals so you cant move. when you wake up from a dream you are just feeling the chemicals in your body. it had nothing to do with the meds.
