I cannot sleep at night, I toss and turn most of the night. Is it meds?
I take methotrexate, folic acid and some over the counter vitamins.
I have the same problem, also on metotrexate, folic acid and plaquenil !
Me too so I take melatonin
Try magnesium to sleep
Yes, I take magnesium citrate with water before bed.
What dosage of magnesium?
My magnesium in in my nightly minerals. mary organic liquid minerals. 750mg magnesium citrate. The calcium and vitamin d help too. Like drinking a glass of milk before bedtime, but better.
Same problem here
I take Flexeril to sleep cuz of pain from fribro & RA
Im beginning to think I may have fibro as well. Who diagnoses you? RA dr? Or regular dr? What do you take for that?
A rheumatologist. Regular dr's are less likely to diagnose fibro in my experience. My full diagnosis is RA, fibro, & palindromic rheumatism (pain over entire body). I take Sulfasalazine w/ folic acid to make it work better, Prednisone when I have a RA flareup, and Flexeril for my fibro when my muscles become tense in neck to fend off headache and get to sleep. Was taking Plaquenil but had adverse effect on my vision so stopped taking it and now see a retina specialist because of it.
I used to take melatonin but doc said it boosts immune and to stop. Now trying to find something else that works as good.
I just started using moringa tea and it helps me sleep now. I'm on the same medication as you
I had not heard of moringa tea; thanks for mentioning it. It sounds interesting -- do you make it out of powder or do you use tea bags?
Tea bags. Research it too. Has alot of benefits
I started sleeping with my pregnancy body pillow that help a bit for me. It took the pressure of my body in certain areas that were keeping me awake.
I sleep with 3 body pillows and 2 travel pillows all ... This is no way to live ;(
I'm sorry and I agree. Is there something you can adjust with the medication you are taking? Or are they working really well but keeping you up?
It might sound daft but since I stopped eating certain foods I sleep better, I found if my body wasn't happy in the day it had a strop st night
well, I can tell that the over the counter vitamins aren't helping you at all. I know for a fact and also CNN did a report on tv that showed that over the counter vitamins are not 100% that say what they are or rated very well. Most of them are only rated 0.5 and 0 is the worse. Why are you taking the Folic Acid? Could be Stress too!
folic is prescribed to everyone taking methotrexate.
Oh, my daughter was on Methotrexate for many years and was not on any folic acid.
Folic acid did that to me when I take it with a late dinner. Maybe?
So maybe I should try taking it in the morning? Bc I do take it at night
Yes. With food and a full glass of water. Maybe with breakfast or lunch.
Cannabis works well for sleep, and ambient sounds.
I agree but it needs to be legalize for its medical benefits everywhere in the country. RA sufferers could use it so bad.
Indeed. I reside in a state where it's legal for recreational use and medicinal.
Invest in CBD oil. İt has absolutely no THC but definitely helps especially with rest!!
Can you tell me more about this? I have no idea what this is
it's amazing and good for you and has no thc. Which means no high or intoxication.
read about CBD oil it's actually really good for you even if you don't have a disease but will help if you do.
Try a dose of magnesium. I was asleep six years but magnesium balanced me out. It is cheap and aid digestion too.
I use charlottes web http://herb.co/2016/07/26/everything-you-need-to-know-about-cbd/
i get mine from a local health food store. I know it's not sold in every state. But because of the 0.03% or less of thc it's allowed to be mailed to you with no RX. I use 500. Just got a vectra test if my numbers are high i'm going to get a more potent order of 5000 here's the web site https://www.cwhemp.com/
