... Does anyone have any tips on how to get better sleep? I sleep for a couple of hours (on ambien) and then the pain and stiffness come on. Then I have to get up move around and then sleep for a couple more. Any help/advice/tips would be appreciated to help get some decent sleep! Thanks :)
belindak... i take ambein to ... i guess im ive been taking it for so long that it really doesnt put me to sleep (not one anyway)..when i take one it kinda helps me like a nerve pill would ... if i cant sleep i will take 2... an maybe you could drink some hot milk an turn everything off ... but the silence drives me crazy ... i put the t.v. on very low an that helps me to fall asleep
I have severe PsA and my doctor prescribed trazadone and Zanaflex (tizanidine) to help with sleeping due to my pain and stiffness. Trazadone is an older antidepressant that is used for sleep and chronic pain and the Zanaflex is a muscle relaxer, so that helps with the stiffness. These are in addition to my pain meds cocktail of gabapentin (Neurontin) and oxycodone.
