i am on methadone for a little over a year and wake up in the morning with no more food in the fridge. I do not remember eating at all. i am on 120mg of methadone. my wife says i also smoke and walk and talk in my sleep and i do not remember that either. this has been going on for about 6 months now. anyone else have these problems. i eat mostly sugars in the night. my wife wants to chain me to the bed because she is afraid i will catch the house on fire from smoking and falling asleep with the cigarette in my hand.

Comments from related studies:
From this study (1 year ago):
Last 2 months very depressed. I ran out of topomax for one week, which may have started the problem. a month ago got e-coli, not able to keep medications down for 3 days. Doctor put me on Pantaprazole, Spasmo-canulase and Aci-Tip for gastritis after the e-coli. Worried this combination may interfere with the zoloft or topomax, both of which cause depression when reduced.
From this study (2 years ago):
sometimes they work together to help me sleep but other times i cant either go to sleep or wake up only after being asleep for a little while
From this study (3 years ago):
I suffer with severe sleep disturbances and I didn't really have this problem before I was on methadone. I get sleepy, but then I am up and down all night long. I wake up and don't know why and sometimes I sleepwalk and sleep eat. I will wake up and be standing in the kitchen eating something out of a bowl with my bare hands or I will wake up and just be standing in the middle of a room. I will also wake up and I am propped up on my elbows or holding my arm up in the air, really wierd sleep disturbances. Again, I don't recall having this problem before I took methadone and it really didn't start being a problem until I had been on the methadone about 3 years or so.
