Until DR I always slept very well and had a problem of not being able to stay awake late if I wanted to – it was impossible (fall asleep sitting). I’d try a couple triple espressos and it made no difference. Even excersize and run around - but within minutes of stopping, I'd start falling asleep.
Once DR started, alternated between way too much sleeping and bouts of insomnia. It’s a little better now but still a problem.
When starting Gabapentin, dreams greatly increased – usually vivid and somewhat startling. Over time this went away until I cut the dose down. If I stop all together, there is fitful anxiety and inability to sleep – but the anxiety is only at night.
Once I started using Sinemet, I can sleep (unless in an insomnia phase) or stay awake at will.
Yea I'm the same I constantly am flucuating between long periods of sleep and periods of insomnia it's imposible to keep a steady scdule because I have almost no recolection of time.
Tell me when you got your DR but before you started the gabapetin did you have dreams when you slept? And how would you say your better sleep with more dreams has aided in your recovery?
