From this study (13 months ago):
Sleep Apnea - treated with Cpap.
From this study (1 year ago):
Thrash around (awake, needing to move, repetition song or poem in head, no worries) in bed until about 6:00a.m. Then sleep about 3-4 hours. Exhausted. Losing weight. Don't take naps. Methotrexate at 10mg, folic acid at 1mg per day. Recently reduced folic acid to 5mcg daily, in hopes of improvement. This unrelenting cycle started when pharmacy switched my Advair for cheaper Dulera. After 2 months of about 3 hours of morning sleep only and 6 pounds lost, back to Advair. But imsomnia pattern continues, though with very slow weight gain (good, for me). Age 65. Only a 12.5mg CR Ambien works--so take it about 2X month. 5mg Ambien (generic) does not work. Afraid of taking Ambien often. Wonder if a sensitivity to the folic acid might be the likely culprit.
From this study (1 year ago):
Worse under personal stress conditions
