Can't sleep years after taking prednisone

Hello All, 36yo male here. From February to July 2019 I took prednisone 3.5 different times for 4 different run-ins with poison ivy. (stopped mid-way through the last one because at that time I knew for sure that it was not worth it to mess up my sleep like that). I have always went to sleep at 9PM and would sleep through the night good except if I drank too much water I would wake ...

Experiences with trazodone?

Was just put on Trazodone (50 mg) as a sleep aid, and was wondering about others' experiences with this as a sleep aid, specifically were your experiences taking it for the first couple of days, and long term? Did you take it every day, and did you ever have to up the dosage? Currently, I'm not taking any other medication (though I was on clonazepam on and off for a couple of weeks,but switched ...

Seriously hurting my life

Here we go, I have insomnia most from anxiety... Anxiety that I can't sleep and it's a vicious cycle. I average 4 hours of sleep every night. Medication is somewhat an issue as I don't need what I think to do...
Calms fortê (natural)
Baclofen on and off
Afteril (again supposedly natural)
Midnite (natural)
Celexa - I need to take this one for sure.

All of these meds are ...

Sleep and related issues

Question 1- have noticed that since I reduced my Lithium from 1000 to 800, there is no noticeable difference in my sleep. Any Lithium takers notice any changes in sleep patterns? ( I'm also on Remeron/ Mirtazipine) maybe that's why my sleep is OK for now.

Question 2 (non- sleep related)I'm currently hoping to taper down, probably over many months, my Lithium , due to side effects. The main side effect is that I have ...

Medication / Sleep Issues / Lithium

So, my question / problem is related to medication. This is affecting me greatly and causing me great distress. I am taking Mirtazipine (Remeron) along with Lithium. I suffered a very bad depression a few months back and was hospitalised. I am literally on so few meds now , compared to what I was on in hospital. The problem I have now , even after my depression has lifted, is that I feel extremely flat ...

How to stop viewing sleep as a chore?

Hey all, how can I stop seeing sleep as a chore, as something I have to do, instead of something pleasant or that I want to do? I think part of my problem is I tend to view sleep as an obstacle getting in the way of the things I wanna do. To me it's a waste of time. Another issue is that I never really know what to do with myself once I'm lying ...

Why do I sleep better on the couch than in my own bed?

Hello all, I hope this is the right forum for this! I don't know whether or not you could say I have insomnia, but I do find I have an easier/better time sleeping on the couch than in my own bed. But why? What is it about the couch that is better than my bed? Is it the mattress or my pillow? Is it because there is less pressure to fall asleep when I'm lying ...
