MightyMouse Posted February 25, 2006 Report Share Posted February 25, 2006 Hi all, I've been having issues with difficulty falling asleep, and then sometime in the middle of the night, waking and having difficulty falling back to sleep. I believe some if this is pain related in that it's usually what wakes me, but I don't think I am allowed to take much more in the way of pain meds , so...I have my neuro appointment this week, FINALLY. I plan on asking him to address my sleep problems.What meds have you tried that help you fall asleep and/or stay alseep. Anyone try the new version of Ambien CR? Other meds? Again, while I'm interested in effectiveness, I'm just as interested in what side effects you may have experienced. I ask this because I've previously tried several different meds with varying effects on my ANS symptoms and/or sense of exhaustion and/or impaired/sluggish thinking the next day. Personally, ambien works great for getting me to sleep by not staying asleep. The benefit of me sticking with regular Ambien is that at least I know I'll consistently fall asleep and not pay for it the next day. Sonata left me groggy the next day and didn't do that great a job for me in general. I also was on liquid...um...starts with a "d"... but I had the sleepies and dizzies the next day. Thanks for any help you my have to offer...it's 2am and I'm now going to try falling back to sleep again. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
