"bad" Batch Of Xyrem?
Posted 18 September 2009 - 11:25 PM
Has anyone ever gotten a shipment of Xyrem that didn't work as well as it should? I'm wondering if that's what happened in my case, because my reaction to the medication has been completely different when I got my new shipment.
I have been taking Xyrem since June. Currently, I take 9g nightly - 5g for first dose, 4g for second dose. I had a lot of problems falling asleep after the first dose. Right before the shipment of last month's meds, I was taking 8g nightly (4 and 4). I was instructed to up the dose to 9g. I still had trouble falling asleep after dose one. It would take over an hour.
When I got my new shipment on Friday, everything changed. After my first dose, I was out within 20-30 minutes. That's fine with me, that's what should be happening, but it took me by surprise. I fell asleep right on my laptop keyboard. I even had a night where I slept through the second dose. I usually don't have to set an alarm - my body wakes itself up.
Is this just a coincidence? I'm glad sleep is coming faster, but such a drastic change overnight makes me wonder.
Thanks for reading!

Glad to see you post
I have had experience when it didn't work as well as I expected, like, I was laying waiting to fall asleep, and normally I am out!
