If I do not take a sleeping pill, I lie awake for hours and when I do doze off, I never really get into a rem sleep. I could wake up many times during a 6 hour period. The next day I am so sluggish that I am totally strung out and totally physically useless.
I am now on Trazadone, (50 mg) but it makes me feel horrible the next day. I even got the jitters every morning after. I am now going to cut one pill in two with, hopefully, better results the next morning. I was on zopiclone (7.5 mg) but because I am not sleeping a full 6 hours, I had to change. I was waking up two or three times per night even with taking a zopiclone.
Thank you.
