  • Support group for people who have Insomnia
    Hi Everyone - I am desperate to talk to people who suffer like me. I have RLS and insomnia. I take Mirapex, Gabapenten, and have tried about 6 different kinds of sleeping pills and for the last 3 years I sleep about 3 to 4 hours a night. I can fall asleep but I cannot stay asleep. I am so sick of living like this. Nothing helps to keep me asleep. I go to bed at the same time every night (9) and around 1:00am, I wake up to go to the bathroom then the nightmare begins.... I cannot go back to sleep. I feel tired, depressed, alone and desperate for help. I have been to the Mayo Clinic twice and to numerous doctors and although they try, I can't get better. I exercise everyday for 1 - 1&1/2 hrs a day. I do not have any other health issues at all. This is a real big problem and a awful way to live. I just feel so alone and sad.

  • Alevert d-12 long term side effects
    I took Alevert D-12 approximately 4-6 days every week for 5-7 years.
    I know have bad aches pains in my bones, joints and can't sleep well cause I wake up several times a night. I don't have true REM during sleep so I feel tired but can't sleep. When I get off the Alevert for a week i'm able to sleep normally. However I've gotten off for a week's time lately and the aches and pains due to bone/joint inflamation type feeling gets worse. I'm going to try to get off it for extended lenght of time see if the bone/joint aches go away. I'll provide feedback in the near future. I ask the editor of this page to please stay in touch with me via email so I can correspond with continued results and progress. Thank you all for posting and sharing your experiences! This is truelly helpful to everyone.

  • Pain meds that cause insomnia
    I currently take 7.5 mg of Vicoprofen for pain for my Anklyosing Spondylitis. I have tried Vicodin and Norco previously, but nothing worked as well as the Vicoprofen. I have never had to up my dosage and I am still getting the same level of relief as I was when I first started it over a year and a half ago. I swear by the Vicoprofen and would recommend it to anyone who has any type of related pain, but, there is one downfall. Every time I take my pain meds I get a huge burst of energy. My pain is usually worst at night, so I have no choice but to take it before bed. More times than not it causes me to suffer extreme insomnia, which is no fun. Up until recently I just suffered through it. I went and saw my primary today and told her about the issues and she suggested I try Trazodone to help ease my mind so I can fall asleep easier and faster. I'm really hoping it works because I don't want to have to switch pain meds because they work so well, but I can't go much longer only getting 2-3 hours of sleep during the week.
    I will wrote another review in a week or so regarding my experience taking the Trazodone with the Vicoprofen.
  • Nardil side effects and my experience taking it
    I have been on many SSRI AND SNRI medications that quickly became ineffective. Was told by a doctor friend that she had been on an MAOI inhibitor for many years with good results. After going thru a horrible withdrawal detox from the SNRI I had been on and then a period of no med at all I was started on Nardil, as I needed assistance from Pfizer, the many turner in affording the medicine. My friend was on Parnate, a different brand of an MAOI.
    Within days, not weeks I felt the depression lifting. It was the most dramatic and fastest response I had ever had to any antidepressant .
    Then the fainting started, falls with resulting broken ribs, bedridden and alone I lost over25 lbs in two weeks. I was of normal weight for my height. After I was able to function again, I noticed that my legs were very weak. We cut my dosage from 3 pills daily to 2. That seemed to have stopped the faint spells. However I still had/have low blood pressure that I monitor at home. My Systolic BP was usually in the 70's and 80's. One of the lowest was shocking to me. It was 52/27.
    My son is a hospital RN and said they would never discharge a patient with Bp that low.
    He was very worried about me as I live alone. I fainted twice after climbing the 13 stairs to my bedroom. The first fall was very bad as I was unconscious and my ribs were severely injured/fractured completely around the front and back and was in terrific pain. I took to my bed and did not seek medical attn. my last ambulance ride to the hospital a mile from my house cost $1000 and since I have no income or relatives/friends to call for help, I just lay in bed I awful pain that was woes when I tried to get out of bed. Thus I lost 25 lbs of muscle, since I had very little body fat.
    It has been two months since that fall and still have one area of pain in the front left ribs and a swollen spleen. The doctor gave me no additional meds and just said to give my body more time to heal. So once again was changed to 2 pills daily instead of 3. The hypotension and fainting got better. But I am now left with very weak legs and fall easily and frequently. Guess I lost a lot of muscle mass with the weight loss. However after a lifetime of depression, Nardil works wonderfully for that which had been long-standing and severe for so many years. People noticed the change in me shortly after starting the Nardil. But I am stubborn about going off it despite all the side effects because it works so much better than any of the many others I had been put on over the years.
    I am soon going to start doing leg exercises with ankle weights, starting with light weights are first and gradually increasing the weight as I hopefully rebuild my muscles and strength.
    Also my vision has gotten blurry and I feel slightly retarded after the weeks in bed when I was breathing very shallowly due to the broken ribs and my brain was deprived of adequate oxygen.
    Prior to all this I had an IQ of 140. If they tested me now, I know I would be way down from that. Also doing lung/breathing exercises to expand my lungs so I can take in more air with each breath.
    So that is my story of Nardil, hypotension, and depression. I had to really suffer to remain on this med that worked so magically for me after so many failures. It meant that much to me to not be crippled by depression.
