    know of any pills that help you to sleep without waking you up 3 or 4 times per night?
    Im so sick of constantly waking so many times in the night.
    I can go to bed at 9pm & still wake up 3 or 4 times.
    I havent had a good nights sleep for 12 years since my daughter was born.
    My sleep pattern has always been erratic to say the least & when i go to my doctor he always prescribes sleeping pills for a couple of days.
    We all know how doped up they make us feel.
    Im so desperate to sleep through the night i just dont know how to do it.
    I am grateful for any suggestions i really am.
    Because im so tired im always bumping into things & i bruise very easily.
    Take care fibrolady37.

    50mg. Elavil

    and sleep the whole night through.

    Get some rest today if you can.

    bed. It works great for me, I sleep soundly but could wake up if I needed to. I don't have any morning grogginess but some do. If you try it or anything, go with the lowest dose
    possible and don't give up if you should feel groggy at first. In most cases that sort of side effect passes in awhile. If not, then it's time to try something else.

    the best thing I ever did was to start using ear plugs and a pillow over the ear thats up. I used to wake up all night and now with the FM, sometimes I still wake up with the pain. We live close to the airport and they rev them up at night and I would never get any sleep. I get the earplugs from a gun shop. They are orange and only cost about .69 cents a pack of two. Its what I ask for every holiday. They do last a long time and then you wont have to take pills.

    I take valerian, cymbalta, and seroquel before bed. On really bad nights, I put on a Liquid Mind CD and put the player on repeat. The music plays all night and I seem to sleep better. Hope this helps.

    Works really good for me. I usually take about 3 3mg tablets and sleep all night.

    2 Tylenol PM at night along with my last dose of Topamax for the day, and I sleep like a baby. (I meant to get some just plain Tylenol Simply Sleep when I was at the store the other day, but I forgot.)

    I don't wake up feeling drugged either, I wake up pretty rested, but I get about 12 hours of sleep too.

    I take seroquel 100mg. It helps shut my mind off so I can sleep. I wake up for bathroom trips but go right back to sleep.
