I usually get a couple of hours, if i'm lucky, but have to admit that if I get sleepy in the afternoon I have an hour. At the moment i've got a very good pdoc, and he's letting me have tamazapam, to use as respite and i'm allowed 15 tablets a month. This way if I wake up early, I take it then and might get another couple of hours, but it does take a little time to work for me, so i'm up for upto an hour, then back to sleep for a short while. I had one last night so non for me tonight. So i'm now up for the rest of the night.

About four years ago they tried me on prozac for a few weeks and I never slept at all while I was on it. It wasn't that I didn't get tierd, I just couldn't sleep. Needless to say they took me off it as quickly as they put me on it!!

I think the longest time i went without sleep was 7 days... i get a normal nights sleep if i take something that will knock me out. But that's good that you got more sleep!!, the hallucinations that come with being sleep deprived are god awful...so i know how insomnia is when is really bad... have you went to see a doctor about your sleep? If so what did they say?
