Medications that are sedatives. - March 11th 2013, 04:21 PM


I'm on quite a cocktail of medications. After my inhalers and anti-bitotic, I also take 8 tablets a day. Five of those tablets are sedatives. Two of those five are a tablet called Topiramate and it's an anti-seizure medication but I'm on it for migraines and this one is proving to really really push me to the extremes of feeling extremely drowsy in the daytime, especially on top of the others.

I know there isn't a way to stop these side affects and the Topiramate is a three month course tablet so it won't be forever but the others could be a few years. But in the meantime, I was wondering if anyone had any ways o how to manage the tiredness of medications that are sedatives? I don't want to be sleeping all the way through the day so I try hard to avoid it because I often struggle to sleep at night but it's making me feel really rubbish so I'm just wondering how you guys have managed these side affects?
