For those who have SM do you guys get dizzy alot,neasous,exhausted,because the last couple of weeks i been feeling like that i went to the doctors last week and she prescribed me 5 mg of percasets and some type of pills that starts with a B well it has caffeine in it. i taken one pill of the 5 mg and i only took it that last time because it made me sick to my stomach to where i threw up.. i didnt take the caffeine pill because it didnt sound right. IM GETTING TIRED of taking all the dang pills what else can the doctor prescribed me i take nuerotin gabepatin they dont work on me at ALL..
