For the last several months, I have been waking at anywhere from 330 am to 430 am in the morning for no good reason. I retire at around 1230 am to 100 am in the morning and waking up way too early only getting from 3- 4 hours of sleep at night. When I awaken, I take my morning meds, which include a dose of an AP, Geodon, and then about 4 hours later, the AP kicks in and knocks me out and I go back to sleep around 830 am to 900 am and sleep in until around 130 pm, getting around 9.5 hours of sleep total, which is what I need. Problem is, this destroys my whole morning.
I called my pdoc today and told him that I consistently wake way too early in the morning every day and he ordered my Klonipin dose to be increased from 0.5 mg to 1 mg each night. He said he was sure he wanted to do this. I was wary but I tried it last night and I woke at 630 am (two hours later than usual but still too early). My pdoc had told me that he didn’t know what to do about this early wakening. I don’t know what he’s going to do now if I call him again.
