Unhappy Cant sleep due to pain

OKAY I've been on Neurontin, which causes me to not sleep at night - at all- so I lowered my dose, slept half of one night, then next few nights up all night in pain like I didn't imagine would be there. Got stronger pain meds, they don't knock me out, and I'm still awake. I'm so tired but I can't sleep.....

I've tried Lycria too prior to neurontin and same effect. Does this happen to anyone else.

I'm exhausted.

Re: Cant sleep due to pain

I have the same issue. Have you tried a prescription medication to help you sleep? You might benefit from a sleep aide. I don't have to take a pill to help me sleep every night, but when the pain is particularly bad it really helps. Many times I get by just taking 1/2 a pill.

I hope you get answers that will help you.
