Took the herbal sleeping draught and managed to sleep from 10.30 to 1 pm then could not get back to sleep at all so took the advice of others who had posted and got up and did the ironing and then tidied up the spare room until 4am. Slept fitfully from 4 to 5 and then wide awake again. So in all 3 1/2 hrs. Funnily enough I don't feel any more tired than the nights I stay in bed trying to sleep but I am still hoping for a snooze this afternoon. 60 mg Pred does mess up your system. I still have an ESR of 117 (down from 143) so I guess it will be a slow process! Thanks to everyone for their help and comments
