need to rest

At night before bed I take 800mg Ibuprofen, and 8mg zanaflex for my neck. The medication makes me drowsy, but I still wake up within 2 hrs and all through the night. The next day I feel tired, fatigued and grippy. This is an everyday routine. My doctor has changed my meds several times, with different combinations. These changes will work for a couple of days but then I'm right back like I was. I just don't know what to do and this makes my depression worse.

Re: need to rest

welcome to the boards. Have you considered asking your doctor for a prescription for a slee;ping aide, such as Ambien or Lunesta? That should help some.

Do you sleep during the day? Sometimes that can throw off your night sleep. It doesn't bother me, but it does my hubby. that might be something to consider also.

Re: need to rest

No I do not sleep through the day. I normally go to bed between 11:30 to 12:30 and I get up at 6am.

Re: need to rest

just another thought. Have you tried taking Melatonin? That seems to help some people...

Re: need to rest

cmcken. Tell me, before you had the injury were you able to sleep?
How were you injured?

I can tell you that before the car accident I was sleeping 9 hours. Now after the whiplash I cannot sleep and need clonazepam. 4 mg clonazepam.

nothing helps the neck pain, it really bothers sleep.

Re: need to rest

Valerian Root is a good natural sleep aid that's sold at all major pharm's. If you can get past the smell it works well....it smells like stinky feet!
