Hi Kara,

I'm so sorry to hear you are having so much pain, and the lack of sleep can only add to the pain and discomfort.  Maybe call your rheumy and see if he can prescribe something to help you through your flare?

Hi Kara,

I would try the Trazadone, but NOT with the Ambien, don't take both at the same time.  I was told not to take Lunesta and Trazadone together, which I don't have any of the Lunesta anyway, but my doctor said it was a no-no. I'm sure it would be the same for Ambien.

Kara,

I have 25mg tablets and I take 1/2 at bedtime.  I tried the full 25mg one night just to see how it would work and I felt really groggy the next morning! So I'm staying with 1/2 tablet.  Yes, of course you want to get some sleep, and I've been in the same boat! Try the Trazadone and see if it makes any difference. I finally just made the switch over to the Trazadone and no longer take the Lunesta.

Hi Kara,

I'm sorry to hear the Trazadone didn't work as well as your Ambien, how much did you take? and since you are out of your Ambien, can't your pharmacy fill your script? I tried the Ambien, and I woke up several times on it, and my husband said after I took it, I said strange things, but I didn't remember any of it! turn My MIL says it works well for her too, so it is all about finding what makes you sleep.

If the pharmacy can't help, maybe contact your rheumy since your script is not for a full month?
