eee123 Posted November 26, 2011 Share Posted November 26, 2011 I have severe insomnia. I've had great success previously sleep wise with sedating anti depressants and antipsychotics. Problem is I need to avoid anything that causes dry mouth or eyes (and pretty much anything that causes dry mouth can cause dry eyes even if it isn't listed as a side effect). So, problem is stuff that helps you sleep that is non-addictive etc and suitable for long term use is generally a sedating anti depressant and pretty much all of these meds cause dry mouth/eye. There is no point asking a doc about this stuff, I have tried and they don't give a shit about dry eye and just give me patronising comments about using drops and it's not a big deal. They have no idea what severe dry eye is like. I also have dry mouth which is more of an annoyance (the dry eye is the severe problem) but still interfers with my sleep due to constantly having to sip water. So, I want a med that won't aggravate my dryness or at least, has some stats or research available to show that the incidence of dry eyes or mouth is low or mild. It's not a matter of trying stuff randomly to see what doesn't affect me, as my poor corneas are so fucked that it is difficult for me to tell whether something is aggravating the dryness or not. I am really looking for some facts so that I can try a med that I know is unlikely to worsen my condition. Thanks Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
