    Anyone else have mornings where you wake up feeling rested
    and wired then within 30 min. you feel as though you could
    fall asleep standing up?
    This often happens when I fall asleep much later than usual.
    After 4-5 hrs. of sleep I wake up as though I have had the
    best nights sleep.(usually having to pee is what wakes me up)I get up feeling rested and not to painful then within
    30 min. I feel as though I havent slept at all to the point
    of being light headed. Then the pain begins and it is a struggle to get through the day.
    If its a weekend I crawl back in bed and thats pretty much where I spend the rest of the day.
    On a work day like today I just count the min. til I get back home.

    Hi Pammy, I know what you mean. I feel ok while I am getting ready for work then wham Im driving to work and cant keep my eyes open and feel lightheaded and spaced out and wondering how Im going to get through the day. I am also counting the minutes at work most days. Not much of a life eh?

    I am recovering from a string of infections and when I get up, I feel as though I could take on the world. Then, I will get so tired that I'm not able to do much of anything. I just think it goes with the territory. For me, it's an improvement over waking up exhausted like I did before I started taking the Klonopin.

    Love, Mikie
