I'm not new to insomnia either, I've had it most of my life, although it got much worse with the CP. I usually get at least 3hrs. This probably has something to do with me having slept for nearly 3 days straight this weekend due to a massive build up of medication side-effects along with sleep deprivation. Too bad it was "drugged sleep" rather than restoritive sleep. I just seem to be having a bad week with everything.
Sorry for taking over your thread David. I'm sure I can come up with some advice once I get some sleep myself.
Have you tried one of the OTC products made from natural ingredients? I like 5-HTP, it puts me to sleep and I stay that way almost all night. Or maybe one of the products that has tryptophane(sp?). That's the same chemical found in turkey, that makes so many people sleepy.
Of course, you should ask your doctor or pharmacist before trying any of these products.

I take Ambien CR. It works great. I dont ever think I am going to get in 10-12 hours sleep with my rsd burning and stabbing me all night, but it is definatly better than not taking it at all, thats for sure!!
Hope Everyone Has A Pain free Day!!
