NHite on Aug, 3, 2012:
I'm so glad I came across this study. I seriously thought there was something more serious going on with me when I had only slept 2 hours or so every night for a period of 5 days. This week has been absolutely horrible, thank goodness I finished the medication, officially, yesterday!
From this study (3 years ago):
Both Claratyne-D and Clarithromycin have made me so restless - I just can't sleep at night. When taking both the drugs I have almost had no sleep for 4-5 nights.
