    Long-term use of Diphenhydramine

    I've had insomnia for years now and end up taking 25mg of Diphenhydramine (the active ingredient in Benadryl, ZzzQuil, and other over-the-counter sleep aids) most nights. I don't have any real side effects, and nothing I've read about the drug indicates that this kind of use would cause health problems, but I do wonder whether it might be affecting my liver--or my health in other ways. Does anyone know?

    Insomnia due to having been directly struck by lightning.

    Does anyone else have this issue or know someone does? If so, do you know what can be done about it? I was struck in August, 2000 and since then I've had a big problem with not being able to sleep. It is not uncommon for me to go 3-4 days and nights without sleep! When I do finally go to sleep, it's from my mind and body finally reaching total exhaustion and I may sleep 5 hours or I may sleep 2 days. I have yet to visit a doctor who knows how to treat my sleeping problem so I'm looking....

    Lower back pain only at night

    For the past month I have been experiencing pain in my lower back. The very bottom of my back right in the center area. But it only hurts if I lie on my back.if I fall asleep lying flat on my back I wake up later in horrible pain in that spot. When I turn on my side and curl up the pain goes away.

    Sleep medication for past 10 years

    I am 28 years old and I have been taking some sort of sleep medication since I was 21... I took Ambien for 4 years, and then switched to sonata and have been taking that for the past 4 years. My husband and I are hoping to have kids in the next year, but I realize I have to stop taking sleep medications. I also take ADHD and Anxiety medication... I realize I'll need to stop taking those too. The one I'm most worried about is the Sonata though. Without my sleep medication I can't sleep....

    Hours of Sleeps

    It is recommended that you sleep at least 8-12 hours in a single day. I used to sleep 3-5 hours a day. Moreover, my body starts to catch up on sleeps by putting off on 8-20 hours.

    sleepwalking a month after a grand mal seizure

    About me: 29 year old male ~185lbs 5'11", Caucasian, living in Cali, single, not sexually active, working 40-hour job and reserves with an absurdly long commute to and from work each day(between 4 and 5 hours a day) leaving nearly no free time to unwind during the week. About a month and a half ago, I was on a red eye flight and had a grand mal seizure within an hour or so of falling asleep where I went tonic clonic for a few minuets. Didn't lose bowel control or bite my tongue, but....
