that this is working for me!! i have tried every sleeping aid otc, and perscription over the last 17 yrs for my insomnia . never, have the otc (health food stores) worked. on another thread i mentioned that i was on lunesta and tamazapam rotating nightly. but it is not working that well anymore. well i just got home from the hospital with bronchial asthma, and all hyped up from the prednisone and antibiotics that they gave me . still on them. i was like a crazy woman from the side effects of the pred. baking and eating the whole cake in the middle of the night (dont bake, and dont even eat much sweets) but the cravings were insane. not to mention the depression, and weird feelings in the body. yet it did have a side benefit. took all the cfs fatigue away, and fibro pain. and i absolutely could not sleep a wink. i thought i was going to have a nervous breakdown. ive been home for a week and maybe one hr of sleep a night. wake up bright eyed and bushy tailed. i felt confused. i guess this is what sleep deprivation does to you. ive been on pred before , for the asthma attacks but not iv or for so long. didnt mean to ramble but, what i really wanted to talk about was the FIBRO SLEEP that i had ordered right before i got the bronchial asthma attack. it saved me from all this horror. i got sick right after it came in the mail so hadnt tried it yet. and was afraid to try it with the pred and antibiotics in me when i got home, but was so desperate last night, that i didnt care if i lived or died. still nebulizing, coughing, choking , phlegm, no sleep. its just too much. so i took it with the tamazapam at around 11.30pm and went out like a light, and woke up at 3.30am. i thought well this is good, because with the prednisone making me so hyper , i thought it would never work. so i took another one and it knocked me out again until 9.30am. i felt like a new person. amazing what sleep can do for us. it is our medicine. this is a miracle for me!!!!!! it may sound small but this is big. because if it can work with the prednisone making me so hyper , i have big hopes for it working when i am finished with the pred i purchased it right here at ph, and it is not expensive. i know we are all so different especially with this insomnia thing, but please friends do give it a try. i have bad stomack problems as well , gastroparesis, ibs. and it didnt bother my tummy at all. didnt give me one side effect. i do hope it will keep working and im not setting myself up for a fall. once again it is FIBRO SLEEP with sedapine. god bless us all, as we struggle on this journey joanie p.s. thinking of asking the doc if i can stay on very low dose of the pred, since it does take the cfs fatigue away. especially if i bone up on the calcium, potassium, mag and D. which it depletes. what do you all think?
