Thanks everyone, and an update

Digimer - February 8

Thanks to everyone who replied to my earlier thread. It's nice to see so many nice people who understand what this is all about. Anyway, a short update; I figured out the name of the sleep disorder; Alpha-Delta Sleep Disorder. To this end, I was started on 10mg/night of Amitriptyline. I'm pretty nervous about the side effects, specially the weight gain (yeah, I'm shallow). My doc warned me that the first little while will be rough and that it takes a month to get 50% effective, if it works at all (50% chance). So I need to be patient I guess. Anyway, I had a *really* hard time waking up this morning and I felt like a zombie all day. I think I took it too late last night, so I will try earlier tonight. I am not sure if or how much it will help, but I've got my fingers crossed! Madison

I definitely have problems if I take it too late at night. I try to take it about 2 hours before going to sleep. I also did not have weight gain due to amitryptyline but I stay pretty active (as in running around and doing errands, picking up kids, up and down stairs at home and at work, plus some light excercise like a short walk with the dog).
