And here we are again..

At the beginning was hard to deal with it, at some point it left..

But since a couple of weeks it keeps coming to visit every night.

Sometimes I think it's a part of my new super powers (produced by the medication), but the fact is that next day, i have always a couple of critics moments not to fall asleep at work.

I wonder what other people do, when u open ur eyes at 3am and u think.."shit.., again" .

My new yoga curse, Asthanga yoga, seems to help with it..at least today I opened my eyes at 5.30.

I just think, it was great when I used to sleep 7 or 8 hours.

Good morning to every one :)

Some PD medications have insomnia as side effects too.They tend  to change the sleep cycle.Magnesium,melatonin,and alprazolam helps.Some people benefit from antidepressant trazadon for sleep.

I get the 3 am wake up most nights, but I can usually fall asleep again until I get up at 5:30. Some nights are tougher than others depending on the tremors. Some nights I have to lay on my affected side to reduce the tremors. CPAP. Has helped some. I normally get 7 hours of sleep now. I don't function well on less than that.

I would kill for a good night sleep!! I am currently trying trazadone but it seems to take a while to kick in.

You need to exhaust your brain with plenty of mental activities in order for it to shutdown. Ashwaghnda can also help,with sleep but don't take it with other sleep aide such as melatonin or klopin
