    Insomnia

    One of the things Parkinson's Disease has done for me is creating a giant problem with sleeping. I could go two (2) or three (3) nights in a row without any sleep. Sooner or later my brain stops functioning, but I'm still awake. I also can't think straight. My PCP put me back on Adderall, and now I can get four (4) or five (5) nights of sleeping three to six hours. It's the only Rx that would help me, and I'm grateful. Nothing else worked at all.

    RE: Insomnia

    Be sure to discuss with your doc, who can help you decide if the adderall is optimal for your situation. You might also ask him/her about using a CBT sleep training program, which is the gold standard for sleep improvement, and completely substance free. good luck.

        Thank you for the info. I see my PCP on Monday, and my new Movement Disorder Dr. next Tuesday. I'll ask both of them.

        What does CBT stand for in the Sleep Training Program. Just in case my Dr. doesn't know, I can tell him.
