I have suffered from chronic insomnia for decades but it has steadily gotten worse. I had been on a med (Seroquel) that worked great for sleep, but raised my blood sugars (I am diabetic - on oral meds only). It took months for my blood sugars to return to a normal range. I am now on Rozerem and Doxepin (one to go to sleep, one to stay asleep) but am getting frustrated b/c the meds are becoming less effective. At least one night per week, I either cannot go to sleep until between 2a - 4am, or wake up around midnight and cannot go back to sleep. This is effecting every part of my life, as those of you with sleep problems know! I had a sleep study in January and according to the doctor who ordered it, I have some of the worst apnea he's ever seen. I don't understand that b/c my husband says I don't snore and I don't see how that explains my inability to go to sleep - even when exhausted. For some reason, there has been a problem (and I can't get a straight answer on what the problem is!) getting set up with a cpap machine - but at this point, I am willing to try that as well.
Any help or insight anyone can give would be greatly appreciated!View Thread
