anyone have general help with insomnia/sleeping. I think a lot has to do for me is the pain. I got a new bed to help, harder bed because the tempurpedic top was not good and when i go to lay i can feel my lower back rubbing against itself. Pure bone on bone and then when i am laying i take my nightly pain medications and I know for me i get the paradoxical effect and sort of have energy. Stimulants make me go to bed haah. I was taking sleeping medications and got off of them due to all the other medications. I know prednisone keeps you up and I take it at 7 am so that way it wont keep me up too much. I have never tried to take it night because i think that it might keep me up. I have taken extra prednisone about 5 pm if lesions are starting to form and that kept me up. I tried ambien, lunesta and sonata. I tried the natural remedies such as st johns wort and melatonin. Nothing really there. I try to drink alot of water and keep sugars away. I know that I cannot exercise before because that gets em all hyped up. I also take my Androgel for my hormone replacement at 7 am because I know that can make you restless and I know it really effects my anxiety very bad and same with prednisone. I never had anxiety before prednisone. Thank you
