So, i've been on pronisone for 3 months now and have found that the unpleasent side effects have started to kick in. I look a bit bloated etc. The one thats killing me tho, is the associated insomnia. I can get to sleep fine, but can not stay asleep for longer than two hours. I'm then up for an hour and the whole thing is repeated again. I usually give up after this happens three times, and then grab a couple of power naps during the day.
Has this type of thing happened to anyone else, and if so, what did you do to combat it? A bit of research on the internet tells me that my doc will be happy to hand over sleeping pills, but with all the other medication i'm on (I'm also diabetic and bi-polar!) I'm reluctant to add another set of pills to the mix.
