Chlorzoxazone: Not necessarily unless lack of sleep relates to pain. It is a muscle relaxant with sedative effects, not a sleep medicine.

Parafon Forte is: not a sleep medication - but drowsiness is a potential side effect.

How many hours should my newborn be sleeping?
2 doctor answers • 2 doctors weighed in
Pediatrics 26 years experience
18-20 hours: Most newborns are only awake for feedings, diaper changes and, on average, a few hours of crying time per day. Remember that this is an average. Some babies, just like some adults, need less sleep. If your baby is happy, healthy and growing properly, she is probably getting enough sleep. Also, most newborns are more awake at night, so try to nap when she is napping.

12-15 hours per day: On average, an infant will sleep roughly 12-15 hours per day. For most babies, that will be a combination of 10-12 hours at night and 2-4 hours of napping throughout the day.

Can I sleep on my back while pregnant?

Better if not: After the middle of pregnancy, the weight of the baby places undo pressure on the major blood vessels which supply blood (oxygen, nutrition) to the baby. For this reason it is better to spend most of your rest time on your side and left is better than right.

No seizure 14years on only 3.1 Dilantin level seen 3 neuros they will not give me EEG is it safe to say I wont have another first was in sleep?

Do not need EEG: Eeg does not diagnose or predict epilepsy. Slowly reduce the med, practice good health habits, and see how you do. Three months of no medication and no seizures can be considered a "cure".

Is propofol safe for a patient with sleep apnea?

Yes, no problem: In fact i had surgery just last week, and Propofol was used for my anesthesia too. I have sleep apnea, and there were no issues whatsoever. Your physician and anesthesiologist do need to know about your apnea, so be sure you tell them in advance.
