Hi all,
It is 4 30am and I am up early again I average about 3-4 hours a night. Starting to feel and look worn out. Anyone any advice. I can go to sleep with no problems but I can't stay asleep. Does anyone no of any meds that may help me.

Hi all,
Thanks for your reply. Meds wise I take Mirapaxin 2tabs three times a day, Azilect daily and Propnolol 80mg twice a day. As for the amytriptyline tabs my sister has recently started taking these tabs as she has recently been diagnosed with PD and unfortunately lost her husband 2years ago and has big problems still trying to sleep.
I don't see my cons. Until may 13 so I think I will pay my GP a visit .
Thanks once again.:wink:

"propranolol and metoprolol are more likely than other less lipophilic beta blockers to cause sleep disturbances such as insomnia " might be relevant?

do you get much pd during the night? if so you might want to ask about a slow release for nighttime?

just some things you might want to ask your GP.

cheers
