I hope he did more during your visit than to just tell you that and charge you for it at $80.00 to $180.00 a pop!

maybe some herbal remedies would do it. Naps accumulate some rest too. After a whiel of not sleeping I find it hard to get back into any sleep rythm anyway. See what you can do that way. I would still call your doc. maybe there is another medication you can take instead with less side effects.

I would say you need to let your doctor know that your not getting your sleep.

Gizmo,

I am a nurse practitioner but I don't recognize the name of your medication. Does it have a "generic name"...knowing the name might allow me to give you some insight!

The two things I've noticed is calcium carbonate helps me sleep and if my iron is low, when I increase my iron I sleep better. I found the best way to get iron is Total Cereal. Best of Luck!
