So I tried low dose stimulants at night and was able to sleep but it was lite. So now taking Clonidine 0.3mg (not long acting version) for sleep and that works amazing except it doesn’t last past 4:00am. Exactly 4:00am and I am on like the energizer bunny. Later in the day I feel the lack of sleep. I asked about long acting Clonidine but it’s not available in Canada. Maybe taking more of it will make it last longer? I asked the pharmacist about Intuniv and they said it’s similar to Clonidine but not near as sedating so I’m a bit hesitant to trying it. Not really sure what to do I got my Dr appt tomorrow and now trying to decide if I should push the Clonidine dosage up or try Intuniv. I feel like I’m so close to being able to sleep properly. I appreciate any thoughts or advice. Thanks
