Thanks for your reply.
You are totally correct about the Ambien! I think my husband has adopted the attitude to NOT climb into bed until he knows he is good and sleepy. Even once he IS in bed, he gets up a lot, goes to find food (he eats a lot!) and/or watches t.v.. (This is even after taking the Ambien.)
I think it all started out with his restless legs keeping him up all night. After night after night of sleepless nights, he got paranoid about "thinking" or "trying" to go to sleep. He told me at first he would start worrying about sleeping the next night and THEN he would start worrying about worrying about sleeping. (WOW!)
So, anyway .. it can pretty much start out that my husband is in bed, but he gets out of bed too much. Now that I am writing/thinking about this, I'm wondering if the Ambien is no longer helping him?
I would be interested in looking at the site you mentioned, if you can find it.
