Despite taking appropriate medications and adhering to a proper schedule; I am only able to sleep in small spurts. Meaning I sleep for 2-4 hours and then wake up and find myself unable to return to sleep for a few hours. This pattern repeats itself through the night until the wee hours of the morning. On average I am able to sleep perhaps 4-6 hours at most.



Current medications as of 08-26-2009
10-03-2008 - Present: Epival, 1000 mg. daily
10-03-2008 - Present: Lamictal, 150 mg. one time daily

Neuroelite,

I'm so sorry that sleep is evading you. That is a terrible place to be. I hate it when I am not sleeping. It sounds like it has gone on long enough that contact with your Pdoc is in order. When I stop sleeping for more than a week, my do wants to know about it. He will always adjust my meds to help get me through the bad spell.... then we adjust them back down as soon as the trend is broken.

I hope you sleep well, really soon! call that doc... messed up sleep can lead to a messed up mood!

be well,
Jules
