    Hi Guys!

    I have been taking Xyrem for a few months and I am having some help with sleep. I am not sleeping as well as I want though and I cannot increase my dosage due to side effects. I have heard from the Xyrem rep. that sometimes people take something in conjuction with it and it works wonders. Has anyone done this and if so what have you used?

    Thanks!
    Hope

    I take Sonata right before I go to bed (it lasts at least 4 hours) and I don't even take the second dose of Xyrem and sleep until 5:00 or 6:00 a.m.

    I also take Flexeril earlier in the evening.

    I wish I felt great all day. No, I'm being treated for lyme and its a pretty strong regiment and the herxing is rough. BUT, getting a good night's sleep helps a lot.
