I have Fibro and CFS and my RX sleep med has stopped working completely. I took Lunesta for 5 years and switched to Trazodone about 7 or so months ago as I have been making my best effort to decrease the amount of RX med's I am on and go more natural or to a better med w/ fewer side effects. I have been on 150 mg of Trazodone and my system has adjusted to that dosage and so it no longer works. For the past 3 months I have been taking Trazodone w/ Diphenhydramine and Melatonin just to be able to fall asleep. But I don't stay asleep and end up taking more and more diphenhydramine and Melatonin to fall back to sleep after I have to get up in the middle of the night to visit the bathroom. My Dr. is trying me on Amitriptyline but so far it hasn't even made me sleepy. I have stopped taking the Diphenhydramine as I am concerned about it's effects on my kidneys and I have an RX for Lunesta but I can't tolerate the side effects of it. For the past 19 years, I have had a serious sleep disorder and do not fall asleep period without an RX of some kind. I am looking into possibly purchasing Fibronol or L-Tryptophan. Which works better, or does it just depend on the individual? Another question. . . Sleep Apnea runs in my family. Could this have something to do with why I cannot fall asleep naturally? I snore sometimes but not alot. I know that snoring is a symptom of sleep apnea. There are several members of my family with it. PLEASE HELP. I AM WAY PAST DESPERATE FOR SLEEP AND KNOCKING MYSELF OUT WITH SLEEPING PILLS JUST MAKES ME FEEL HORRIFIC THE FOLLOWING DAY(S). I feel like I am losing my mind. The less sleep I get, the more migraine's I have and the worse my fibro is. PLEASE RESPOND ASAP Also.. .I am on many OTHER med's for my fibro. I believe some of them contribute to my insomnia.
