Hi all! I have been on Copaxone for a little over a week now, and, I have also had insomnia for about the same period of time.
I do take my shot late in the evening, but I have also tried them in the am. In the am, they seemed to make me sleepy, but at night, I am up for hours and hours! (Take this post, for example: it is 7:15 am. I have not be able to go to sleep yet.) I am already a night owl, so it is very hard for me to get on a regular schedule one my sleep cycles get messed up, so I am disappointed that I seem to be back to square one in that regard. My classes and clinic hours start at 8:00 am, so this is more than a little distressing.
Has anyone else experienced insomnia as part of their treatment or as a symptom? Any ideas (that don't involve Ambien) to help with this?
Thanks in advance!
