> My problem is that I'm now waking up 4-6 times a night. Usually I can fall back to sleep, but my sleep is very restless. Also, I feel tired during the day, but then more alert/awake at bedtime so I end up staying up too late; not having enough sleep time. (When I first started on 6mg, and since I upped to 9mg, I've had more nights when I had a lot of trouble falling asleep or back to sleep, but I think that will wear off like it did after a few weeks on 6mg)

Some people have found relief from insomnia by taking the patch off at night. I've been taking generic Benadryl (diphenhydramine) for my early morning awakening issues. I believe others have found success with Seroquel.
