I had sleep apnea. Had the operation. It worked wonders but. Now I take Klonopin 1 hour before bedtime. I'm out like a light. Also, I cut off all caffeine by 5 o'clock.
Absolutely. Please be careful with benzos gang. They are bad, bad, very bad drugs. Amazingly effective at doing what they do, but the withdrawals can be horrendous. I was on xanax for a while when my kid was sick in the hospital and it was super effective. But I didn't even know there was such a thing as benzo withdrawal until I experienced it first hand. It took me months to get back to normal.yes they made me sleep but not without consequences. Imovane (a medication similar to Ambien) works very well but isn't something you should take for extended periods as you start to develop tolerance. Benzodiazepines like valium or ativan also work but are addictive.
Thank you & welcome. I can't speak enough to the value of journalling (not a diary) as it has done so much to assist with setting and achieving personal & professional goals.This is brilliant. I don’t journal in this way, but I recognize the principle. One must find a way to be at peace with the day that’s ending and the day that’s coming. Hope others see the wisdom in your method. Thanks!
Benadryl...long term side effect is that it may increase the onset of dementia/Alzheimer’s...not a good thing. Saw both my father and grandfather die of dementia. Terrible thing to watch.Benadryl; has co-benefit of taking out allergies. Long-term use may not be good; something about Alzheimer's- I can't remember.
Melatonin- just make sure it's dark. Won't work if you're reading etc.
These (flu) days - Nyquil. Ahhh... blessed end of day.
I have had the same issue. I would get out of bed and do push ups. Sometimes it worked and sometimes it doesn’t. I’m convinced it is stress. I used to sleep like a baby before the job promotions and the arrival of a child and the onset of more frequent trips to the bathroom. It sucks getting old. Tonight I don’t have the muscular restlessness but I woke up around 1 and couldn’t get to sleep. So what am I doing? Perusing B&B. I’m feeling a little drowsy now. Think I’ll try and get some shut eye.Well, that's a novel idea! I often find myself restless, like, muscular restlessness, or something. I'm trying that tonight.
