Been sleeping ok thanks to Ambien CR. It's been a nice break. Although I woke up at 2:30 a.m. today and just said forget it and got up for the day. I know I'm going to have to quit taking it every day again soon. And then I won't get to sleep and my anxiety will be bad every night.

I slept pretty good last night. I fell asleep around 8 and I woke up at 6:15. I woke up once at 4 and I thought I was going to be up. Then I quickly went back to sleep.

I took Ambien 2 days in a row, I did sleep not the good sleep but I was knocked out.

Is your Pdoc not wanting you on it daily ? I know most are against it. But Damn.... then someone needs to come up with something else !

Right now I'm taking a Rx for it where I have enough for daily. He just refilled the Rx but idk yet if wrote for as many. I really don't want to take it every day. But I also don't want to be up and super anxious and pacing every night. It's been a struggle since I quit smoking. I used to fall asleep great just had early waking issues. What pdoc told me last time is to try to sleep without it, and if I haven't fallen asleep after and hour or two, cut the pill in half so it works faster. I get nervous not sleeping. I stopped taking Ambien in July. Slept terrible. I went on a mood Rollercoaster, though it was on the milder side, it was still annoying.

I fell asleep without a melatonin last night. But I took a couple vertigo meds. I woke up around 11:30 and I needed the melatonin then. I took it and I fell back asleep fairly quickly and I woke up off and on until 4:30. I woke up feeling very anxious and hot and I felt like just deep cleaning my room since I didnít do it yesterday. Iíve been cleaning since I got up 2 hours ago.

That sounds so typical of what our struggle to sleep is about. I am surprised that some new bright shiny more expensive sleep medication hasnt hit the news yet

I fell asleep while AGT was almost over and I woke up a couple hours later when Jimmy Fallon was on. Now Iím awake but I feel like if I put my phone down Iíll be able to sleep again.

Edit: I got about 4 hours of sleep. Itís still super early though.

Well I only woke up twice during the four hours of sleep I've gotten so far. I said if I woke up between 1 and 3 I'd take a thorazine which doesn't make me sleepy but helps with the symptoms making it easier to go to bed. I don't know if it'd work right now because I don't feel that tired and since the pharmacy is giving me shyt I'm trying to save the week's worth I have so I guess I'm just up.

Iíve still been waking up at 4:30. Last night I took about 50mil of melatonin. 3 different kinds. I fell asleep quickly. Then I woke up at 4:30 feeling no physical affect from the melatonin. I just felt frustration at the time. I had to stay in my room for 1.5 hours so I wouldnít wake anyone up. Then I got up but I didnít take a shower right away.

All I can take is melatonin or else I get frantic like hungry. Iíve tried unisom and Benadryl and both caused me to eat massively. My Pdoc still thinks Iím taking the remeron. Which Iím not because it caused me to gain 14 pounds in 2 weeks and the weight gain is one of the reasons I ended up in IOP in December 2020.

I took the full dose of ambien last night and woke way before my alarm! That sucks. Woke up at around 2:30 too. Something about stoves bubbling over. I always wake up so hot even though I donít use blankets and have a fan going. They say your supposed to cool down as you sleep, not me. I furnish enough heat to keep a small house warm for a Minnesota winter ❄️

Slept for 20 minutes, then was up an hour, then slept an hour and a half, then was up for another two hours, then slept less then an hour, and here I am. Even took the thorazine...twice... pnurse didn't really care about my lack of sleep, said we'd address it next month.

I fell asleep quickly without any medications. I woke up at 11 feeling dehydrated. So I drank a bottle of body armor. Then I realized I wouldnít be able to get back to sleep without a melatonin. So I took just one and I woke up at my frustrating usual time. Although I was still groggy so I was able to just lie in bed until 5:50 feeling moody but not antsy.
