insomnia help
1 Reply RSS Share
anything new for persistent insomnia? I've tried sleep apnea clinics, various over the counter drugs..I have RLS so that complicates things. I can sleep with Ambien but would prefer something not addicting. ## Hello, Cynthia! How are you? Have you ever tried Trazodone? It's a type of antidepressant and many doctors have been prescribing it to help people with sleep issues, since drowsiness is one of its predominant side effects. The FDA lists the others as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache and dry mouth. It's an idea to ask your doctor about, since only they can help you decide what is safe for you to try. Does anyone else have any suggestions? ...

Cymgen - Insomnia
1 Reply RSS Share
Hi there. I have just started with Cymgen and found that I cant sleep at night. The doctor advised me to take a sleeping pill for a week just so the body can get use to the Cymgen. Will this help? Will I be able to after a week, leave the sleeping pills and then still have insomnia? ## Hi, Rika! Sorry about the problem that you're having with the insomnia. However, there's really no way to say if this is going to work for you and if that side effect will wear off. And if it does wear off, it may take more or less than a week. Learn more Cymgen details here. The only thing you can really do is to try what your doctor has suggested and, if it doesn't help, talk to them again, as it may not be the right medication for you. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

Vyvanse Insomnia
3 Replies RSS Share
i know one of the side effects of vyvanse is insomnia. i can't sleep at all on this stuff, usually i get four or five hours of sleep per two nights. on a good day i'll get six or seven but again, that's over the span of two nights. i take vyvanse every morning except for the weekends, and it gives me enough energy that i can function mentally as though i've gotten all the sleep i need, but my body is achy and sore, and it's starting to make me feel a bit ill. Not to mention i have trouble getting out of bed at all on the weekends when i don't take it. all i'm basically asking is this- people with 60-70mgs, if you have the same problem, how do you get to sleep? is there any way to combat the insomnia without nullifying the medicine? I already take Olanzipine (... ...

There are new effective insomnia meds out there. I like Ambien and Lunesta. Be care full, they are a addictive just like placdidyl. If you want non adictive meds. Of course check with your doc first, Trazadone, Seroquil, Geodon, (most of these are anti psychotic drugs but they do work. And if you don't won't to go those routes ask for benzos. ...

## I've been taking this pill which i was told would help me sleep. They're Trazodone HCL 50mg tabs. It says on the bottle that it's for insomnia. Is this a sleeping pill and what does it do? I sleep 10-12 hours and I only take 1/2 the tablet. ## The thing about trazadone is it is actually an antidepressant,but only in high doses built up over a period of time(this level must be maintaind to be theraputic).But one of the side effects is extreme drowsiness,but if taken regularly your tolerencn will build up.Mine builds up after a period of time and I have to stop taking it for 6 months in order for it to b effective for me.But overall it does its job for sleep,I have been taking it for 5 years ## Just like the trance song, I can't get no sleep. That is how I feel every ni... ...

Insomnia wears off?
3 Replies RSS Share
can anyone advise whether the Insomnia side effect wears off? ## I haven't taken it myself, so I can't speak form personal experience, however, in theory the side effects of prescription medications should reach their peak at around 4 to 6 weeks of use, when the medications reaches its full effectiveness in the body. After that they should start to taper off in severity, as your body gets used to the medication. Learn more Ampyra details here. How long have you been taking it? Have you talked to your doctor about it? ## I sure hope so... I take mine 7am and 7pm. u might want to do 6am and 6pm. When I was started with amitriptyline for headaches, sleep is not an issue at all. Maybe too much at times. take care.... ## I've been taking Ampyra for MS for a year and have experien... ...

Norco and insomnia

My mother was taking this medication after surgery yesterday and has not slept at all. Could this be contributing? ## While this medication usually causes dizziness, and drowsiness as side effects, according to FDA reports, there are some rare occasions where it has been known to cause the opposite. It can energize some people and cause insomnia. If it persists, she should consult her doctor about trying something else. Is she on any other medications, or just this one?

I am on 5 th week 20 mg of Prozac. Up to 5 days I was also taking xanax .50mg per day. Now that I feel better with my depression, I have stopped taking xanax. The last 3 days I cant sleep and at night when I close my eye my mind doesnt shut. Also still struggling with shortness of breath and some panic attacks. Specially now that stopped taking xanax. Any suggestion? Thank u ## Hello, Roadrunner! How are you? There's a chance that it's due to stopping the Xanax, you may be experiencing some withdrawal symptoms. It will likely just be a matter of time, before things improve. If not, then you should speak to your doctor. As listed by the FDA, withdrawal symptoms may include nausea, headache, anxiety and depression. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Thank u. Yes I started ... ...

Insomnia and anxiety
2 Replies RSS Share
I had a burning skin sensation that turned into a sore throat. I was prescribed the 4mg pack and antibiotic. After day 1 I had excess energy bordering on anxiety and insomnia. I suffer from anxiety and take Lexapro. I called the hospital center where I got the med and the doctor said the symptoms should lessen each day and if they got worse that it would be ok since this is a fairly low dose. Now I am confused as I hear horrible things about stopping. ## How are you doing? Did you quit the pack early? I am surprised that the Dr prescribed this to you, since one of the side effects is anxiety. I went to the ER, on my fifth day, with a severe anxiety attack, and I have no history with anxiety. I stopped taking them with two pills left. I am now two weeks past my last dose, and I am still ... ...

What is the strongest insomnia-medication to help insomnia? I've tried everything. ## Hello, Shelly! How are you? What all medications have you tried? There are some, such as Temazepam, that are quite strong and are often used, when someone has failed to respond to other options. The FDA classifies it as a benzodiazepine, so it carries the risk of being habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability. Have you tried cutting out caffeine and sugar? Have you tried keeping a strict sleep schedule? Soothing baths at night? Have you had a sleep study done? ## Sonata 10mg capsules are the strongest sedative hypnotic for sleep. Be very aware that it can and will cause you to do and say some really stupid s*** you won't remember. ## My br... ...

I usually sleep great due to lexapro, but after being on advair 250/50 for just a few days, I can hardly sleep ! I am exhausted but it is so hard to fall asleep. This is getting rediculous, but the advair is helping my asthma a lot and I hate to quit it. Any suggestions? ## Hello, Adelyn! How are you? One of the active ingredients in it is a steroid, so it can cause insomnia, but it should wear off in a few weeks, once your body adjusts to the medication. If it doesn't, you'll need to consult the prescribing physician. You may also experience an oral yeast infection as a side effect. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

Seconal for Insomnia
11 Replies RSS Share
My physician prescribed every benzo drug imaginable (Ambien, Lunesta, sp?) and they were ineffective for my occasional insomnia, at best. He gave me a prescription for Seconal to use as needed. When I tried to fill it you would have thought the Rx said "Opiates" or "LSD". The younger pharmacists had not a clue as to what it was, and the older ones acted like they had seen a ghost. Anyway, I finally found the medication via my home delivery pharmacy and when I need it, I take it and it works. No wiped out memory, no sleepwalking, so groggy aftermath. Any drug when taken in excess or with other drugs can be dangerous...this includes simple OTC drugs, Tylenol, aspirin etc. This drug has been so vilified. I know that there is another use for the drug (in Oregon), however thi... ...

Viibryd and insomnia

I have been on Viibryd (40 mg) for 6 months and for the last three weeks I have not slept more than one or two hours per night. I do not drink or smoke. My doctor started me off on 15 mg's of melatonin, when that did not work she prescribed Ambien. The Ambien has not worked. I have tried taking Zzzquil, Tylenol PM's and even Benedryl, but nothing at all works. I am frustrated all the time because I can not sleep. I have noticed that the medication is not working anymore, but I expected that the third night that I was not able to sleep. Does anyone have any suggestions? ## That is very unusual, because medications in this class usually cause somnolence and drowsiness. Learn more Viibryd details here.

I was in the hospital on an unrelated matter. After reviewing my blood work, the attending physician told me to stop taking l-thyroxine.
