So many people have horrible insomnia issues... so sad and frustrating to experience. I just wanted to say that I have been checking the side effects pages of a lot of fibro meds.... the ones from the companies that make the drugs. Insomnia is frequently listed. Sometimes we trade one problem for another, but I guess the question is did somebody call "no trade backs"? Maybe there are other meds or alternatives that won't do this. I know that sometimes some doctors (not all) are willing to settle for the side effects on our bahalf... wow... but, that doesn't mean we are without hope as much as it means that some (not all) doctors are not very creative... so maybe it's good to look for a new doctor, or add someone else to the 'team' of folks we trust to get a more well balanced set of opinions and treatment options. Without sleep we can't restore our strength or functioning, and we need all of the restoration we can find.

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
