thanks again for the ideas. i really need to not make lists in my head, but rather just get up and do them! also the going to work late plan is great -- my work will be fine with that. only problem is that I have three school aged kids who start early.

Are you guys taking the Ambien CR? Controlled release is supposed to help you sleep through the night- 12.5mg Ambien CR works for me w/ 40 mg Prednisone.

No I'm just taking Ambiem (not Ambiem CR). I'm getting second remicade today and I will ask for it. Thanks. At least I'm posting this at 5 AM and not 3 AM!! I won't mention that I fell to sleep at 1 AM..... Think I will go do some laundry.

My doc told me to take Benadryl to help me sleep while on prednisone.

I think mine was just regular Ambien too and not Ambien CR. I need to try the Benadryl since that's what my GI recommended too.

Amazingly, last night I fell asleep at 11 pm and slept until almost 6 am. Wow! What a difference a day can make. I don't feel nearly as jittery and actually felt a bit rested this morning.
