I am 88 years old, have been on Amioderone for 8 years, Coumadin

Customer Question

I am 88 years old, have been on Amioderone for 8 years, Coumadin 6 months previously. I have a pace maker and have been taking sleeping pils for a few weeks. I have also been taking hydrocortizone for several weeks---{less than one a day}. I have quit taking sleeping pills and hydrocortizone for four days and nights. I wake up at night with a mild headache-three nights in a row. As long as I am laying down I have the headache. When I stand up and move around the headache goes away.

To make sure I understand you, the headaches started after you quit the sleeping pills?
What pills where they?
