: To everyone, It is now 3:30 in the morning and I can't sleep another side effect from Being a Parky. So I thought I would relay a little story. In the late 50's early 60's my grandmother who also had Parkinsons was put could you believe it, in a locked mental institution. They did not have the medicines they have today. The only med she was ever offered was Artaine. At that time the quote "Doctors" thought her mental facilities were impaired. Which I understand you can have senitlity with Parkinsons diease. But to be locked in a mental institution for it seems a little over the edge. I remember seeing her in a locked room when I was 15 years old. It made a lasting impression on me. So I am thankful that research has come so far,and with learning and sharing with one another we will fight the good fight.Well I have talked your ears off. I think I will try and go nite nite

Eileen-
I take 10 mg. of Ambien and I stay asleep with it for 7-8 hours. I feel great after a whole night's sleep. If I don't take it, I can only stay asleep 45 minutes and am awake several hours. I never seem to catch up, just get more sleep deprived. Or did you say that insurance doesn't cover Ambien?? Sorry if you've talked about this already!
