I had one of the best sleeps last night because of my meds.
Yes, I think that's about the size of it. I don't expect there to much progress in the treatment of depression / sleep problems for a long time to come. None of the big 4 pharma companies are currently working on antidepressants. We just have to manage as best we can . I dream of sleeping 5.30 to 11am!!! I'm more like ~7am till ~2pmMe too.
I've always been a night owl anyway but I'm caught in exactly the same sleep pattern of being awake all night and catching a few hours from 5.30 am to 11.00 am.
I don't worry about it any more. Just go with the flow x
Interesting. I'd not heard of Non-24 before. Like you, I have always been a night owl. I also get that zombie tiredness after waking. I may try melatonin supplements.I am diagnosed as having a condition called Non-24 (see Google - many hits), which may not be "fully accurate", but the only suggested treatments are melatonin and daylight, neither of which do much for me. I was a nite-owl even when I was 5 years old.
A very senior psychiatrist once told me exactly what the answer was to your problem (my problem), and I shall share it with you here!In reality it’s depression. get to sleep around 4 am wake up about 11 then just in and out of consciousness for couple hours. Right now been just laying on my bed for about 2 hours.
