As I stated before my doc won't think of giving me a real sleep pill for another 2 weeks. Last night I had my worst night of sleep in 3 weeks with most of the time waking up every 15-20 minutes. I don't need a pill that will help me fall to sleep as I can with no problem and with the Xanax it's a peice of cake. Staying asleep is my problem. I've been on Lexapro 10mg and Xanax 1 mg at bed for 1+ months and my doctor is telling me to give it more "time" to work. I'm hurting really bad today and have one a 1-10 scale of energy its a 2. Pain level today is at a constant 6 and when I have to get up and walk around its an 8. I work a fulltime job and this is really starting to interfere with my life now. I did go fishing last night which I know agravated the pain level today but I had to give up on a promising future in ice hockey because of 3 knee surgeries and will never play again. I refuse to let this DD take away one of the 2 things I love to do. Fishing and playing poker. I consider myself a very good poker player have won some good money in my weekly cash games but am starting to notice this DD affecting my concentration while playing cards as well. Very upset today and any advice would be great! Thanks ALL!
