Sleeplessness

Hi,

I am so desperate to get an alternative medication. I can't sleep at night and all pills I got are not working for me.

Re: Sleeplessness

You need to go to a doctor and find out what is keeping you sleepy. You may have a hidden health issue.

Re: Sleeplessness

Did you ever find out what was keeping awake? I hope you did. Let me know. Hugs for today.

Re: Sleeplessness

This is really unfortunate i hope you get the help you need. As much as members here would be able to help you slightly we can't prescribe you the medication you probably need so this is something you should probably take up with your doctor as soon as possible. good luck!

Re: Sleeplessness

A stressful situation, as the cause of sleep disturbance, should be worked on with a psychotherapist. If more than a year after an unpleasant episode of life insomnia persists, then the specialist's help is really needed. He will help you cope with fears.

You cannot tell people what doctor to go to without much information. It is best she go to her PC first. And then, if it warranted, she will go to a different doctor. Fears may not be a mental problem.

Re: Sleeplessness

I was taking my arthritis med only once per day and eventually had trouble sleeping because I was uncomfortable and stiff. Finally had to go to twice per day and all is fine.I suggest you talk with your rheumetologist.
