Definately been there done that. When I was on high doses of prednisone out of the hospital I stayed up for over 48 hours, wide awake and getting very naurotic thoughts. Called my doc. he RXed ativan (lorazapan???) it worked wonderfully...deep sleep, no dreams. Unfortunately after I was off the pred. they won't give me Ativan anymore so it must be controlled or something. I take Ambien now for my sleep with Fibromaylgia. It helps fall asleep but I still wake up through the night and dream constantly, so I am sooo tired when I wake up. I hate mornings!
Be careful with Trazadone. I took it for awhile for Fibro, after a time I noticed I was choking on my food alot. Read up on the side effects....yep choking on food is one of them. I won't take Trazadone anymore.
Dx'd in 2000, currently on 6MP, Asacol, and other stuff for Fibro. Since I have at least 2 autoimmune diseases my motto is: "I am allergic to myself"
