My husband took the ambien first, then switched to the trazadone, but not at the same time. Then he went back on the ambien but it still didn't work, so next he tried the ambien cr. And I think it is working better. He has never slept well. He thinks too much. The abilify helps me from over thinking too.
The adderall is for the fatigue that I get with fibromyalgia. I am working on the pain issues. When I was in bed, I could barely walk. I had to hang on to furniture to get around the house. Once I got pain management and adderall for the fatigue, I have been better. It was a long road though.
I am glad that you and your ex are good friends. My husband and I are good friends too. It really makes a difference. He is very supportive.
I hope that you find a way to get the rest you need. I always needed that eight hours too, but now for some reason I look forward to the next day and if I get less, I am still functional. But no less than six hours. Then I don't feel well.
I have found living in the now to help me a lot. When you meditate, that is what you are basically doing. Paying attention to that very moment. I am sure that there are many good books on meditation. That is how I learned. Amazon sells used books cheap. Try looking there. I love the feeling of having the control to be able to relax. It is really powerful. I hope that you can learn.
