Hi. I need some help to wake up in the morning. I can fall asleep easily and quickly sometimes to quickly and spill my cup of tea I am drinking
But in the mornings I have real problems with waking up. I know that it is probably the after effects of the drugs that I am on which are numerous but the main one's are
Gabapentin300mg x 2
Venlafaxine 75mg x2
Mirtazapine 30mg x 1
Paracetamol x 2
Tramadol 50mg as needed for break through pain
Naproxen 500mg x 1 again for break through pain
Plus hrt, Buscapan, omeprazole, magnesium
In the mornings the same again except for the Mirtazapine, but I take amiodipine 10mg and I try to take these when my hubby who is a postie gets up. I have a radio alarm that goes off at 8am my phone at 8.30am and then another alarm across the room so that I have to get out of bed to switch it off at 9 am.
I generally go to sleep between midnight and 1 am but on some nights I can't sleep usually on the nights when I have first put my patches on or the pain keeps me awake.
But then what happens is that I sit on the edge of the bed and checking my emails catching up on things on my tablet and I will fall asleep and wake up when I hear the thud of my tablet landing on the floor. This can last anything up to 3 hours before I can stay awake enough to have a shower.
I am fed up with losing half of the day like this. Has anyone got some ideas.
I have tried leaving the curtains open drinking strong black coffee, drinking water, splashing my face with cold water, body shop total energy cream, tisserand energy pulse point,
Thanks in advance for your help
