All the posts are from 2014 so I thought I'd start a new one for 2015.
My sleep has been so bad for almost 3 months. Usually no matter when I drift off to sleep I ALWAYS wake up to start my day at 3 or 3:30am. This morning I woke at 1:00am. I'm irritated and grouchy. My pain issues are exaggerated and of course my BP too. Doc put me on high doses of Zyprexa and Seroquel and I still can't sleep. Maybe I need an Ambien? I see the doc next Friday.

I'm taking a Mindful class and it's tough to be mindful when I'm so grouchy from lack of sleep.

Hi-- what time of day do you take your meds? That could make a difference. I have been there with the 3 Am thing. But it eventually went away. I hope your situation improves.

Hey artista! I've experimented with the times I've taken them and it didn't matter, I always woke around 3 or 3:30. A treat...last night, the 26th, I actually got 8 hours!!! Yippee! I added 25mg of Benadryl and that was the icing on the cake. I have one heck of a medication hangover, I'm super sleepy, but at least I have my faculties and I'm not grumpy as of now. It's been 2 or 3 months since I've had that much sleep.

That *is* good to hear!! What are you taking now?
I hope your good sleep continues. It is funny when something as 'simple' as a good night's sleep can make such a difference.

I take 100mg Seroquel and 10mg of Zyprexa and 25mg Bennedryl for luck. I no longer have medication hangovers or wake up in the middle of the night. It's a great combo for me. Finally!

Good luck to you all!
