Tyno, I take 100mg of amitriptyline and 1 1/2 mg of xanax at bedtime but still go through periods of waking at 4 am. I don't know why 4 is the magic number for me. Since I don't have to get up at a certain time I can take another xanax and go back to sleep sometimes. This morning I got up at 6:30 to use the bathroom and couldn't go back to sleep so I got up. It's like I go through a cycle with this and I can't contribute it to more pain or anything. It's our whacky brains at work or not at work.
I hope this is a cycle your going through and it to shall pass.
luv and hugs
