Nitrous Oxide for use as a sleep aid?
I have been dealing with neuropathy pain for around five months, not very long. Everything I have read on the subject suggest that I’ll have it from here on out. I hope that my pain can be managed better in the near future, as I cannot imagine my “sleep” getting any worse.
A recent byproduct of a thought experiment I ran through the other day on the subject of pain relief, left me with an intriguing question. Could nitrous oxide, aka “laughing gas”, administered at night through a nasal feed in a metered fashion, create enough distraction to the conscious mind for some quality sleep?
I do not know anything yet regarding prolonged use toxicity or side effects, but it seems to have promise in my tortured mind.
Does anyone have information on the acceptable use and or limitations of using nitrous oxide in the setting?
