>How would you characterize your insomnia? Do you have trouble falling asleep, trouble staying asleep, problems with waking up too early, or a combination of these problems?
I get to sleep easily enough but tend to wake after 3 or 4 hours and from then on sleep is light or not there.
>Have you found any of the treatments that you've tried for your insomnia to be at all helpful?
I took gabapentin for a couple of years. I have just stopped that because my PSA shot up over that period and that with the anecdotal reports of gabapentin causing pancreatic cancer made me cautious.
I am currently taking trimipramine for sleep, one third of a 50mg capsule a night, somewhere around 15mg. It is very good for deepening sleep, and unusually I get to dream. Easily the best thing for sleep for me.
