nasty side effects, what I caller sewer mouth, got my first ever yeast infection but the worse thing by far is the insominia. Never had sleeping pills before, ambien worked first 4 night then seemed to stop. Before I got the ambien had not slept in three days, was actually physically sick from lack of sleep. After 4 days ambien not working so well. Also feel exhausted all the time. It's even difficult to work, seems like I have to push myself all the time, and I have been off the zyvox for 4 days. When does this go away?

I'm a great sleeper.. I can sleep at 10pm and wake up at 3 pm the next day! But i have been taking amoxicillin for 4 days and I can NOT get more than 2 or 3 hours of "sleep". Im sure amoxicillin is the cause because it is the only thing I have changed.

I got a spider bite for the first time and that night I only got four hours of sleep. Probably because I was convinced it was a bed bug bite

Have problems sleeping normally. Problem magnified while on Amoxicillin. Took 2 courses before I realized this was the cause. Had been taking other meds to be able to sleep. Couldn't figure out why there was such an abrupt change. Waiting to finish dosage to see if my new normal returns.

I had been taking pramipexole for RLS. I was awake for hours during the night. I thought it was just me. I WAS EXHAUSTED after work. I couldn't stay awake during church, teacher staff meeting, and driving a car (I would have to pull over in parking lots to take naps). Even upon the birth of my granddaughter. I had to pull over to nap. My husband drove to the Tahoe area while I slept 6-7 hours, he would wake me to eat. I would come in from work, sleep on the couch all evening. Then take my medication and within an hour or two, I was wide awake again. I went off Pramipexole cold turkey and began sleeping most of the night only waking, for at most, a half hour a couple of times a night. I no longer have to be the sleeping passenger, I am wide awake ALL OF THE TRIP. We just drove back and forth to Idaho, I drove equal hours as my husband and maybe napped a half hour one day. I'm not sleeping in church, meetings, the couch, doctor waiting rooms, and etc. I'm a new woman.

I really believe in having a healthy lifestyle in diet. It has helped me to overcome many of my health ailments, but one I seemed to have an on-going struggle with was insomnia. I just couldn't shut my brain off so I could fall into a nice deep sleep. I tried different medications and methods to no avail. I was skeptical about melatonin because I didn't want to take anymore pills (natural or not), and then I discovered a sleep spray that contains melatonin. It has 3 natural ingredients, including Lypine (an amino acid), and I can now say that I can fall asleep quite fast most nights!

I just started januvia only took 2 days. The first day had bad headache , second day throat irritation and trying to go to bed and have lower back pain and insomnia.

Just raised my dose of Paxil from 10mg to 20mg
I didn't have an side effects with the 10mg but I just started with the 20mg and had crazy dreams last night after a hard time falling asleep. I woke up in the middle of the night with my heart racing. I'm hoping this will wear off eventually. Not sure if I will continue to take.

Lunesta and insomnia
I've been on Lunesta for a week and quit as my insomnia got worse every night. The final night I was still wide awake at 5 a.m. I'd be better off taking nothing which is what I did last night. Slept for 2 hours, then took my old Ambien and slept another 2 hours until muscle spasms in my back ruined my night.
