Insomnia

Question

I am terrified to take this after the reviews but the first 2 drugs did nothing so I'll try. The last drug caused me to have nightmares and hit my wife in my sleep she was pregnant that time and is pregnant again with our second. I have to try it I havent slept in a few days. Wish me luck.

I hope things work out well for you.

Take the time to read the paperwork which comes with your medication. It lists all of the common, uncommon, and rare side effects which were reported during clinical trials and also after release to the market. Please understand that not all medication side effects may be known. Meds may affect different people in different ways regardless of contraindications caused in conjunction with other medications. There may also be problems with over the counter supplements or even foods, notably grapefruit. If you do have problems, be sure to notify your doc immediately. You can also contact the pharmacy and the pharmaceutical manufacturer to report on what you. Some medication inserts may also state that your doctor may have chosen the med because the benefits of a medication may outweigh any unpleasant side effects.

If you look up medication reviews on web sites, please realize that some reviews may not be accurate. Industrial sabotage is very common. With the amount of money at stake in big pharma, it would not surprise me if a competitor posts negative reviews about their competitor's medications. It happens all the time.

Good luck!

With or without medicine I go crazy in my sleep I have hit my gal so many times with sleep punches so your sleep craziness probably will always be there regardless of what medication you take temazapam helped me go to sleep every night uninterrupted most of the time stress also might be a factor in your insomnia hey if your gal stays with you knowing she can get hit at night by a mad sleeper she is a keeper for life you can also try to eat close to bedtime that might help you go to sleep better prazosin helped me with my nightmares basically you got to talk to your doctors about your problems and try the different medications until they find your right combination of medications to stabilize your condition miniature vivid nightmares waking up going back to sleep just to have another miniature nightmare is stressful in itself I hope all goes well with you eventually and you get the sleep you desire ???

Prazosin was the first they put me on then hydoxycine and now temazepam! So I hope for thr best being a pill proper is not how I wanted to spend my entire civilian life out of the military. Very disappointing

    • Type 1 Diabetes recent onset!
      I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in September 2017 OUT OF NOWHERE.

      i am a Navy Reservist and deployed in later 2009 to mid 2010 and again later 2014 to mid 2015; had a 2 year recall between those deployments.  

      Only healthcare received since commissioning in 2008 was from the Navy and no issues EVER.

      insulin dependent and have dietary restrictions and in a non deployable status.

      VA denied initial claim due to Type 1 not showing on active duty and now appealing.

      Anyone with successful experience getting a rating with my circumstances?  I live in Upstate New York.

    • Agent Orange Kadena Afb Okinawa
      I am looking for anyone who was on Kadena AFB, Okinawa or .Chanute AFB, IL. My dad was there from Oct. 68-April 70. He has ichemic heart disease, diabetes which has resulted in the amputation of his right leg below the knee and peripheral neuropathy. We were denied in 2002 AMVETS filed a claim on his behalf for heart condition, diabetes and back problems. I refiled in December 2011 and have just received the claim statements and medical release forms. I am familiar with filling out this paper work because my husband is a combat veteran of Iraqi Freedom. I have been reading articles from the Japan times and I am a member of the Agent Orange Okinawa facebook page. Another thing that helps make my dad's case is that he was on Chanute AFB, IL and it is on the EPA Superfund list and has PCBs/Pesticides and Dioxins/Furans listed as ground and water contaminants. I welcome any advice, tips or articles that I may have missed in my own research.

    • Appeal granted and closed.
      My appeal was granted and closed on November 9.  I got an unofficial notification from the DAV on November 15 stating "appeal granted with an evaluation of 30%" which is great!  My question is this:  How long until I get the official notification from the va? Nothing on ebennies has updated since the appeal closed. Appeal is now in historical and just says complete and at originating va office. I understand no one knows va timelines to a tee but a general timeline would be great.  Thank you all! Hope you have a Merry Christmas!

       

      Edit:  This was my first time appealing and it was a VBA grant.
