V has had very disturbed nights for the last two or more years often up as many as 15 times a night or at least calling for help for one thing or another . A little while back she was put on Zopiclone . With this she either went to sleep for about three hours then was awake or equally she would stay awake till about 2am then sleep for maybe three hours . And sometimes it wouldn't work at all . She was then recently put on Temazepam . One tablet produced much the same results as Zopiclone but with more confusion in the morning - when the dose was doubled she still would wake at about 2am and want the commode but handling her was almost impossible even using the hoist as I couldn't get her upright enough to put on the belt and getting her moving in the morning was again very difficult .Now she has been put on Clonazapan (this week ) The first night I gave her a tablet 15 minutes before bed and she was virtually asleep before I could get her into bed and slept through till 3am - called a couple of times but then back to sleep until 7am . The next night she stayed awake until 12 am and then slept through . Third night she slept from 11pm until 6am and last night she stayed wake ALL night calling constantly - I think we had about one hour sleep between us Has anyone out there had similar patterns and any remedies that have proved successful .
