I was wondering if anyone else was experiencing this problem. No matter what time I go to bed I always wake up at 1.30 am. When I wake I am always sure it is morning. I then have to get up as my tremor is so annoying. Have tried taking Stalevo and Requip at different times, but nothing works. I then knit or read for, say a couple of hours, before returning to bed and hopefully getting a further couple of hours sleep. Unfortunately, I have never been able to sleep during the day so am feeling exhausted. I used to take a Stalevo on waking, but my Consultant has told me to discontinue this and increased my dosage of Requip XL, which seems to have made things worse. Knitting seems to stop my tremor, but does not help me to sleep.
