I’m a ridiculously light sleeper. Even with the window unit AC running (which is better than any white noise machine I’ve ever used), ear plugs, an eye mask, and 5-10mg of melatonin in me, I will still wake up when my wife does something as minor as toss and turn in her sleep. We even have a memory foam mattress that minimizes how much movement you can feel! My biggest complaint has always been fatigue, and that excessive fatigue is the biggest cause of most of my symptoms. Like today, I probably got a solid 7 hours, but because I was woken up several times in the beginning of the night and again between 4-6am, I’m having a hard time focusing on anything, my brain feels sluggish, I am more lightheaded than usual, and I have a headache.
So I’m considering asking my psychiatrist or neurologist for a prescription for Ambien. I’ve seen some people post their own experiences here with MAV + Ambien, but all the posts are 5+ years old and from people that I don’t think are active here anymore. Are there any active members out there with experiences to share?
