I started taking 25mg of quet several weeks ago but then started waking at 5am which i can't cope with. so pdoc said double the does but still waking at 5am. Any advice would be great, the quet does seem to help with the anxiety.
I've found that if you accept that you are going to wake up, and stop worrying about it, you can go back to sleep. For years I've awakened at 3:30 many nights, and stressing about it only kept me awake. I've learned now to just accept this is going to happen and to just get a drink of water, go to the bathroom and go back to sleep. Now I have an old dog with an old man's bladder, and he's waking me around 2:30 to go out, lolol.
I have been fighting to be in the same place as you. I always wake up too late. I DO take 100mgs but there is only one answer for you, well 2, your choice.Take Quet a couple of hours later OR I don't totally recommend this but melatonin will add a couple of hours. Take when you want to sleep, it acts fast (quick dissolve). It is safe with Quet. But take the 2 together , a couple hours later.
