Haven;t posted in a while as we were without the net for a month but anyway. I have been having a really hard time with sleep, pysch doc wants to try me at a low dose of sereqoul 25mgs to see if that helps. Some times i awake 2-3 times a night and take naps during the day. Have chronic pain, mild to intense headaches not yet diagnoseded, mild fleeting thoughts, and i have now discovered that i experience sleep paralysis. Which i have had before but never bothered me as i never really knew what it was and didn;t happen often, now it is and don;t like it. I've searched the net a read bits a pieces about this disorder and now i am keeping a log for it so i can address it to my family doc or pysch doc. Maybe i can be apart of some kind of study or something. Well i was just venting and wondering if anyone else have had these experiences. Already taking 100mgs of Zoloft, 0.5 klonpoin 2-4 times daily which i feel is loosing it;s effects and tylenol 3 for pain. I drink coffee have been for a long time so i don't think that it is the main cause of my sleeping problems, mostly it;s night terrors or pain related etc. Anyway i appreciate any feedback thanks in advance Twiggy2 will keep you posted as to whats happening if thats cool.

Twiggy ,Stop taking naps if thats zapping your sleep during night,dont drink coffee (i know its harsh),then see how that works .Initially it would be tough but slowly you would know what was culprit.Listen to your pdoc and your body.

Sleep has been a nigtmare for me for 15+ years.  I have tried everything and every over the counter sleep aid, but they just didn't work for me.  I did homeopathic stuff and a total flop.  My mind races at night and I have to keep the tv on and it has to be the right channel with the right voices or I will stay up until the next movie starts.  It usually takes me about an hour or two after I take my meds.  I am on 100mg seroquel, 150 mg quomem 1 mg of rohypnol, which you can't get in the states, plus my lithium.  Sounds like alot, but it works.  Every once in awhile I will not be able to sleep and my problem is taking more until I sleep. I just want you to know you are not alone and there are many ways to tackle this.  For me it has to be meds, maybe it will be different for you, but getting a good night sleep feels great.  I do get sleepy and take a nap as well every once and awhile, not often, and caffeine may affect some and you probably should cut down to see if that helps you.  Best of luck to you and let us know how it goes.

Twiggy,

I'm sorry to hear you're having trouble sleeping. That sounds so frustrating. Night paralysis too. I've never had that myself. Please let us know what you find out about that.
