Comments for this study:

Cliff (2 years ago):

Male 75 taking Lyrica 25mg per day, Synthroid .1 mg day - Using Losartan for 3 months, have experienced chronic insomnia of 3 to 4 hours light sleep per night. Not taking prescript. sleep med, only OTC pain reliever PM every 2nd night. Nothing helps, I wake at 2 or 3 or 4 AM wide awake and can't return to sleep, which causes drowsiness rest of day. It is wrecking my health and creating moods of anxiety and gloom. Took Benicar previously which seemed OK but HealthSpring Medicare Advantage replaced that expensive drug with Losartan, a generic.
