Hey guys! This is actually my first post on the forum :] So after I was diagnosed [ALL] I became a major insomniac.. I never had an issues before but I'm guessing from the medications, anxiety and just getting used to the hospital waking me up every hour, I was just NEVER falling asleep. I was taking benadryl to help at the beginning and then I told my doctor and she prescribed me ambien. Its definitely helped me sleep a little better. I didn't want to become reliant on a pill to help me sleep so i stopped taking it and didn't sleep for 3 days. Now I have it my mind that I won't get any sleep if I DONT take it. I'm now in my maintenance cycle and the side affects aren't as bad as they were a year ago. I'm also STILL taking the ambien, although I brought the dose down to half....Do you think its bad that I'm still depending on a sleeping aid??
p.s-I tried all the natural remedies like lavender and melatonin
