Hello, this my first post, I just joined yesterday.
I developed early awakening insomnia suddenly, in 1999. Drs. always ask if I was depressed at the time, which I was not.
I.had a sleep study done which was negative for sleep apnea. I've tried just about every remedy known to man.
I was put on Elavil, which worked for awhile. Then Trazadone, which also worked for awhile. Finally Mirtazipine which for a very long time,
but it too eventually lost it's effectiveness. Cognitive behavioral therapy has not proven beneficial for me.
Currently I take Ambien when I wake at 3:00 AM. It works well so far, I think it may also stop working at some point.
Being someone who has had substance abuse issues, I'd like to be drugfreeJuly 4, 2013 at 7:45 pm #14801
