    After having sleep issues my entire adult life (55) I recently discovered that I am Autistic and that sleep issues is often a big part of Autism.
    I have been addicted to various sleep aids over the years. I am currently weaning off of Seroquel which was prescribed to me to replace Excedrin PM’s which my doctor felt were unhealthy to be taking every night. Seroquel has been extremely affective but I have put on a frightening amount of weight and really want to be able to sleep drug free for the first time in decades.
    Being Autistic I am not sure I will ever sleep a full 8 hours in a row but just being able to get to sleep without drugs will be a huge step forward for me.

    Hi!

    Welcome to the forum, thanks for posting!

    What is the biggest challenge you face with sleep – falling asleep when you go to bed, staying asleep or waking up too early and not having the ability to fall back to sleep? What is an average night of sleep like for you?
