Ive been prescribed Amytripaline, first 1 at night, no good for first 4 nights, then it kind of worked for a week. Then back to normal, so 2 at night on Dr's orders... not much better really i did sleep untill 6am ish. But feel too groggy next day, no good if i'm working, I wouldnt be able to drive thats for sure...
Doc reccomends taking,1 gabapentin 300mg, 2 co-codamol 30/500, 1 or 2 Amitriptaline.. at bedtime... Well ive been doin it for over 2 weeks and i'm not getting tierd enough to go to bed even after all that. When i do go to bed between 1am and 4am, depends how bored i am. I'm restless, tossing and turning, I'm so fed up now its making me depressed... so i'm off back to doc's this week see what rubbish they tell me this time.
Has anyone tried anything different that works, ive tried all the usual things, hot milk, hot bath, sleeping on sofa which for some reason seems more comfy than my bed!!! Nothing works, now im at a stage were i dred bedtime, this in its self is a bad situation. I'm currently not working due to the exaustion of ME, My best sleep is between 5am and 10am. Yet i get up around 10am, 11am at the latest and by 1pm I'm falling asleep. I dont go to sleep because thats the last thing i need is to get into that sleeping pattern.
Really fed up now. any suggestions???????????????
