Sleep issues...

While I know that the struggles I'm having with sleep are PAWS related, it still stinks.  I've been up since 3 a.m. EST this morning.  Where are my fellow sleepless friends?

So sorry your still having trouble sleeping.  My doctor has been trying all kinds of different meds to help me sleep. So many give me rls. I take .5mg of Clonodine and it really helps me when I'm having a bad night. Told the doctor and she is fine with me using it as a sleep med.  The great thing I find about it is I don't have that hung over feeling the next day.  I really wanted to go el-natural, but with menapause etc..couldn't handle the no-sleep thing. Have a great day !   Mary

I've heard the Clonodine works for a lot of people, but I'm already on two blood pressure meds so it might just put me under... lol
Good to hear from you.  I was so lonely this morning.  There was no one for me to talk to...  
I hope you have a great day too.  I've got to teach tomorrow and finish a project to take with me, and I can't concentrate for the life of me.  
I may have to take a little nap,

Day late, dollar short but I assume you have tried melatonin? It puts me out. Also in the morning, at the time you should wake up...put a bright light behind the knee cap for 5-15 minutes. This helps to reset the bodies clock. After sleepless nights, your clock is off too. Don't you just love all the things these pills do to us?

Just noticed your post.  Yes, I've tried the melatonin but it also gives me a hangover feeling the next day.
I've never heard about the light behind the knee, etc.  Interesting.  This may sound stupid, but what kind of light can I use?  lol  But I'm serious.
Let me know.
Thank you,
