  • Slept thru the night-

    Wow for the 3rd night in a row I slept most of the night thru!! This is even going thru everything with my sister. (she gave me one of her Tylenol PM's to take along with everything else-like I really needed it!!) but she said it helps her sleep and she was more worried about me getting some rest and having to do things for her and then going home and taking care of my family and working, etc that I needed to sleep as well. So I took one and I went to bed my regular time which is around 10:30 or so and I sleep till 5:00 (which is pretty much when I wake--I get up at 6:00) but still this is really good as I usually wake up at 2:00 and 4:00 - sometimes can't get back to sleep). It says not to take on a long term bases (10 days or so) so I will stop after while and start up again). What ever works, works!!

    :woohoo: :woohoo: just make sure that they are ok to take with your other medications. You can also ask your doctor about Lunesta and Ambien. Isn't it great to finally feel rested? I am happy for you

      I agree with Tig, you might want to confer with your doc on the routine usage of it, they may have something better for you, like Tig said, Ambien or Lunesta, etc.

      It is a wonderful thing to sleep through the night, I remember the first night I slept through when I was newly diagnosed, oh my, it was heavenly! And it was so much easier to deal with things when I was rested, wow, what a difference it made to me!!!!

        It's great that you are getting some well deserved rest. I'm going through my insomnia stage again. We just switched satellite tv companies and have all these great HD channels and I find myself wide awake at 3 am!

        Take it while you can get it I say!

        04/17/09 Crohn's disease almost killed me with a combo of extreme constipation from pain medications. My bowel ruptured, I almost died from peritonitis and spent several days in the ICU then more in a private room on the floor. If you have any questions about severe constipation from pain meds please don't hesitate to send me a message.

          Yes, I just talk to my family doctor's nurse as I got my test results back, and I asked her she said its alright for now to take it, but if I continue to need something that i really need to come in and talk to the doctor.

            Good for you!!! Cheers!! Oh boy how I can relate. I remember vividly my first good sleep after being diagnosed, and the next day I felt re-charged and more optimistic. I think it is very important for us to get extra zzzzzz's if we can. It sure helps my outlook!! And while on the subject it's time for me to go to bed so good night and sleep tight everybody!!
