how do you handle when things don't work out the way you want? i have posted here before about my sleep struggles and things were better for a week and last night i hit the wall again. i know it's only one night, but i start to think the cycle of no sleep is starting again and get all worked up. i am 30 weeks and i started nortriptyline (75 mg) about 10 days ago to help with sleep and i am not sure it's really cutting it. i am also taking some unisom, like 1/2 a tab. any advice on how to not get caught up in the what if's? i know it's normal not to sleep well at this point in my preg too, but it causes a lot of anxiety for me. i feel like i am taking these meds, i should be sleeping! also-how early do you all take the nortrip? i am doing an hour before bed, but maybe it needs to be earlier?
I take it about an hour before bed. I also take 500mg magnesium and 1.5mg melatonin. Once in a while I'll take zzquil or dramamine (I drive home late at night and can get motion sickness when driving). I'm actually not sure that it really helps me for insomnia. The side effects are too much so I'm looking to taper off of it.
Do you still take it? I notice your question was posted over a month ago.
