I always get nightmares - they're usually what wakes me up at all hours of the night. Family and friends tell me that I always toss and turn and talk and drink water (and occasionally walk) in my sleep. But since starting to use that spray I haven't had any nightmares and my parents haven't noticed any sleep talking/walking! Here's a quick summary of how I'm going on the spray so far:
Before starting: 2 hours sleep, several hours awake, 1 hour sleep
Night 1: 3.5 hours sleep, couple hours awake - then remember to spray, 2 hours sleep
Night 2: 4 hours sleep, wake up, toilet and spray again, 3 hours sleep
Night 3: 5 hours sleep, wake up, spray again, 2 hours sleep
Night 4: 5.5 hours sleep, wake up, spray again, 2.5 hours sleep
Night 5: 6 hours sleep, forget to spray again and stay awake after that
Night 6: spend several hours trying to get to sleep, then remember to spray, fall asleep in about 15 mins, 7.5 hours sleep then got up
