We are hitting a new era of agitation in the daytime and at night. Daytime I am managing but the nights are exhausting. So looking to the experts ( you guys)
for ideas to improve my husband’s sleep.
I give his night time sedation (Clonazapam)at 8pm in the hope it will settle him. Put him to bed around 10pm and on a good night he is settled by midnight. No fluids after 6pm except with medication. No computer after 6pm and I try to get him out of the house every day.
We use essential oils to pulse spots, CPAP for his sleep apnea. I give painkillers and antihistamines to reduce pain and itching. He listens to sleep meditation tape.
We use a conveen twice a week but he can not tolerate this in bed and rips it off ( ouch) so he gets up at least 2hrly to pee. Sometimes he gets up thinking he needs to pee but can’t.
He has a hospital bed which goes up and down like a fairground ride plus there is a bed sensor ( life saver)
His best sleep is usually between 3.30-5am.
Any suggestion gratefully received from a very tired Tippy
