    Having experienced my first incidence of bed wetting last night (been on xyrem for 2 months),I may been overly sensitive to the potential risk in this situation…
    Does anybody know if it is safe to take xyrem if you have an upset stomach and diarrhea? Specifically, is there potential that I might (literally) sh*t the bed?
    Trying to weigh the risk of losing control of by bowels while sleeping versus the pain of working without xyrem sleep.

    I had to quit Xyrem due to high blood pressure, motor tremor, and anxiety. It can definitely cause urinary and/or fecal incontinence. Indeed, there’s hardly a side effect that it CAN’T cause. It definitely puts one to sleep but that sleep can often come with an overly high cost.

    What dose are you taking? Could it be too high?
