Diagnostic Limbo: Seeing Rheumy since November 07, Taking plaquenil, Cymbalta, Flexeril,Claritin, Zantac,Ambien, vitamin D, Darvocet.
Hi Jennifer, I take Ambien only when I absolutely cannot sleep. At first I did take it often (2-3 nights a week), but since I have been on Plaquenil for almost 3 years, I sleep quite well.
I just keep it on hand when I can't sleep. My body has finally settled down.
It does make me feel very rested and I can even get up to go the bathroom and go right back to sleep. It's good stuff. AnnieRae
Well I guess I'll be the odd one out. It doesn't work for me. . I wish it did. I imagine it''s because I take xanax 3 times and day and pain meds 4 times a day. I guess if that doesn't knock me out nothing will. I suffer from insomnia 2 to 3 times a week. It runs in my family too. I'm glad it works for you thougth. Maybe you should tie your hands over your head when you go to sleep? LOL. I've woke up with my hands hurting from laying on them I can relate to the pain.
