Having trouble sleeping every nite.

Postby Fabulous Furnace » Sun Dec 27, 2020 5:58 am

hi
have 170 days clean from Cannabis. The one major problem I'm having is not being able to sleep every night. Having pretty bad insomnia. I'm taking 10mg of melatonin, 5-HTP, trying to meditate, Etc without luck.
I was wondering if other people are having sleep issues after almost 6 months and if so what helps you to get sleep.
I exercise everyday and do hard cardio about 4 days a week. Don't smoke and I don't drink.
I have been prescribed Trazodone but it's seeming to not work as well as it did and I feel hungover in the morning. I'm having to take 200mg just to get some sleep.
This is been going on ever since I quit.
thank you.

Well done on 170 days! When do you exercise? I find if I exercise too late in the day my sleep can be really affected.

I find when I cannot sleep getting up and doing something until I am really tired can help. Nothing that using screens like TV, phone or PC but a crossword or some reading.

I am 6 months and 15 days into my marijuana quit. I also do not sleep well. I wake up about an hour or so after I doze off. Struggle to get back to sleep. I’ve use melatonin, all kinds of herbal junk, doxlymine (sp?) Benadryl, etc. Just went and got some ambien to day, 10mg. I will break one in half and try it to night, and hopefully will not wake up with a racing heart as usual. Never had any issues till I quit smoking marijuana. Even before I started smoking again, I slept great. While smoking slept great. As soon as I quit, my sleep left me and waking up with a racing heart, sometimes pounding. Freaks me out.

I feel for you. I known what it is like. Like you, this a a new thing for me. I have quit before and insomnia was at the beginning.
Like you, I tried a lot of things without success.
Let me know how the ambien works.
congratulations on 6 plus months!
That is great...

Well, I actually cut the 10mg ambien in 4 parts. So I basically took 2.5mg of ambien and half of a 3mg melatonin. It actually worked pretty well. I took ambien before all this when I was a shift worker a long time ago. When I took it then, I took a whole 10mg and it would make me sleep good, really too good. I would wake up in the morning and there would be a 2 litter Pepsi in the middle of the floor, or food left out on the kitchen counter where I had eaten in the middle of the night without remembering it at all. So that’s why I cut the ambien in small portions and used melatonin with it. I’ve read a few articles that said low dose ambien and melatonin were safe and effective, and it did work fairly well. Before the melatonin would help me fall asleep, but then I would wake back up in an hour or so. I think now with the ambien, it helps me stay asleep. I would not recommend anyone mixing sleep meds unless they talk to a doctor, but for me, I’m at the point to where I need sleep, and like I said from what I’ve researched it’s safe in low doses. Who knows? I plan to do it again tonight. Hopefully if all this is paws, I will get back to normal. I honestly don’t like taking anything. Hope you find a solution that will work for you.
