Dx: Rare rapidly progressing neurodegenerative disease called Multiple System Atrophy (brain rot, autonomic system failure, neuropathic pain and a whole lot more). Added improvements: Intrathecal pump, spinal cord stimulator, oxygen and a nice shiny power wheelchair with a horn and all the trimmings! At this rate I could almost be bionic by Christnas.
Medications: Sinemet, Requip, Klonopin, Baclofen, Provigil, Lyrica, Cymbalta, Fentanyl patches, Dilaudid, Fentora/Actiq, Zofran
(The cost of these meds are unbelievable and could feed a starving nation for a month or longer!)
Words that soak into your ears are whispered...not yelled. Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. Leave the rest to God......
I too suffer with poor sleep and when I get desperate, say after 2 or 3 nights of very poor sleep I take Amitryptyline 1 tablet of 10mg. This is prescribed by my GP who tells me it is absolutely safe and non addicting. It certainly gives me a very good unbroken sleep if taken a couple hours before going to bed.
The only downside is that it makes me feel a bit sleepy the following day but after a few sleepless nights I put up with that.
