I have been thru the list of drugs over the years - even 24hour study at sleep clinic. I would bother w/ the details but even with lots of doctors and drugs - no sleep. Besides no sleep everything hurt and brain didn't function well but thought that was from lack of sleep. Finally I asked about fibromyalgia (FMS) the nuerologist didn't pay attention; so I went to a university hospital and they confirmed FMS. I now take ambien and tricyclics (and I had to start at 2.0mg elavil bec. I am "reactive/allergic" to tricyclics) I will say that there are nights when no amount of medication (or melatonin) knocks me out even when I'm exhausted.
question: someone said "cookies and milk" routine; mine is cheerios and milk - why does it put me back to sleep
I had to smile at the comment about only good sleep was in a coma, I told my internist the only time I felt better was coming out of a general anesthetic. good luck - k
