i'm on 3 different medications to help with my sleep. they all worked well at the start of taking them individually, so we keep adding on more. even so, i am STILL waking up throughout the night. at this point, is it insomnia, or could it be the "sleep disturbances" that come along with FM?
Chronic Generalized pain
Same, I wish I could tell you… like last night I took 30mg of melatonin and only slept 3 hours.. I woke up and couldn’t go back to sleep until another 3 hours later. Smh
Mfers sleep disturbances is apart of fibro???! That explains sumthin. SMH. So bad at getting restful sleep
Unfortunately, after 24 years with FM, I have found that many times a medication that works quite working after a few months. Especially the sleep meds. I've been on every sleep med out there. Right now, I take Tizanidine (muscle relaxant), Hydroxyzine Pamoate ( anti-anxiety), Naproxen (for pain, allergic to opiates), and medical marijuana gummy 50 mg. I manage to sleep most nights 5 to 6 hours straight, then toss and turn. Looking into getting a mattress topper.
