It’s been almost three weeks now that I’ve been on the new medicine combination. I like how the Cymbalta is helping me in that I am not having those mini crying spells during the day. I have energy to get things done. The problem is that I can’t sleep. Even with taking the 1/2 pill of Klonopin at night, I still can’t sleep. I’m up every hour on the hour, staring at my alarm clock, wondering why I’m awake. It doesn’t help that I also have sleep apena, and I have that air hose connected to my nose, so when I wake up and try to get back to sleep, I have to adjust to the air pressure.
When I take a full dose of the Klonopin (.5mg), I am so knocked out that I have a hard time getting up in the morning. However, the last time I took a full dose, I was getting up every hour on the hour. UGH.
I need my sleep. I went to bed at 8:30pm on Tuesday night because I was so tired. I still was waking up at 2am, 3am, 4am, 5am. HELP!!!!!
If I take naps during the day, then that messes up my sleep as well. But, I love napping. I love curling up with a blanket and taking a little snooze. So, now I have to figure out if this waking up is medicine induced, or if it’s stress induced.
I’m getting frustrated at not getting a good night’s sleep.
