So glad to hear you are sleeping better, Scarred. I too, take a ton of pills each day and at night I take my lyrica and my antidepressants and usually my percocet, so I sleep usually very well into the night. I sleep in one position, on my back each night and never move too. Strange huh? But it works for me, so as long as I sleep.
I've wondered too, how it would be to fall asleep without the aid of the drugs helping. I used to be able to do that very easily, at a drop of a hat, as the saying goes. Well, I still sleep well, just need my pain to be dialed out, thats all.
Good luck. Hope the topamax continues to be a success for you.
God's blessing and gentle hugs,

Believe in yourself. Be kind to fellow humans and animals. Take time to smell the flowers and the coffee.
And by all means, when you are down, ask me for help. I will be there.
