Hi Guys,

Hope you're all having at least _pretty_ good day [Smile]

I'm doing fairly well, but the bloody sleep issues are rearing their head again - difficulty falling asleep, and the worst - waking up after four hours. Finally falling back to sleep.

What have you found to allow for an unbroken rest?

Best,

CBL [group hug]

insomnia is my worst symptom. Dr. K recommended a "sleep cocktail" at his last conference: 80-120mg Lithium Orotate, 100mg 5-HTP, 3000mg L-Tryptophan at bedtime. This helps me, but is not enough. I have to add in some melatonin too along with my pharmaceutical and magnesium. Still I don't sleep well, but at least I sleep.

Thx. I've got some homeopathic sleep aid here; I'm going to try it tonight. Wish we (us) all luck [Smile]

Last week I was on Biaxin and slept like a baby.

I just started Doxy and I was up every few hours.

Do different abx affect sleep?

Yes abx effect sleep. I was on IV Clindamycin and I would sleep for 10 hours, it was heaven! I now am off and I have not slept for 2 days.
