btw, is there anyone else out there suffering from insomnia that has found help?
i've had horrific insomnia for years. did the sleep study, found out i have rls, thankfully no sleep apnea. even with the mirapex i wasn't able to sleep more than 1-1.5 hours at a time.
i've found the most relief with a nice warm relaxing bath before bed. i take 5mg melatonin about 20 minutes before going to bed and have a small fan for white noise. plus i keep the bedroom dark and [color="deepskyblue"]cold
my bed is the most comfy...terrific mattress, super soft sheets, fluffy comforter, expensive and well-worth-it pillows.
i took ambien for years with good results, but now my insurance will only pay for the generic and it's terrible. hubby got up one night to find me in a bath with my gown on and no memory of it. plus i was sleep eating...not good!! i've tried restoril and others. xanax works well, but docs don't seem to want to prescribe it over and over
oh, and don't drink alcohol before bed!!
