I know just how your mind feels, like your nerves are screaming and your thoughts are like a dervish in a whirley?? I vote call your dr. first, before you try anything else over the counter. I had good results from Flexeril and Ambien, too. But I have CNS lupus and often my screaming nerves and insomnia are warnings I am in a flare already or that one is coming soon....and for that, prednisone taper, and orders from the Dr. to call him. I have also found that Neurontin has helped my nerve pain immensely, too.
God knows, even if I don't....
CNS Lupus 2005, APS, Hashimoto's Thyroiditis
Meds: Plaquenil, Neurontin, Thyroid, Piroxicam, Aspirin, Atenolol and Norvasc, Prednisone 5mg daily and Paxil, Ambien every night.
