im on prednisone 40 mg and i cannot sleep either, i know it is due to this. but in the past i have had trouble sleeping becasue if pain also. the only thing that helped on the pain side was to go see a pain mgmt doc. right now i am on a fentanyl patch and this really cits out any pain. maybe if you could get on another pain med it would help.
as far as the sleeper meds go i have tried everything. ambien, lunesta, vistoril, trazadone and nothing helps. right now i am on rozerem and i dont really get relief from that either. im going to talk to my doc about this and see if theres yet another we can try.
i really do hope you can get some sleep. sometimes ill be up for nights at a time and i know how difficult it is to be out of bed let alone function on no sleep.
good luck :*
