I am taking 20 mg Zyprexa nightly. For 3 weeks I've been waking up at 5 am every morning. After I wake I try and go back to sleep but wake many times?

Early morning awaken: Studies show early morning awakening may be a sign of clinical depression. For the best sleep, go to sleep at the same time every day and try to stop looking at electronics at least 15-30 min before bedtime. Talk to your MD about your awakening and consider making the most of the early morning if that's what your body wants to do. Wake up and enjoy your day. I hope you feel better. ...Read more

Woke up during a nap had low tinnitus and there was music on which seemed to hurt my head/ears (not loud) after sleeping back and wake now all normal?

Woke up during a nap had low tinnitus and there was music on which seemed to hurt my head/ears (not loud) after sleeping back and wake now all normal?

Yeah, got that.: Myself. Right now.. When the music hits the same notes as the tinnitus the nerves jangle. Can get this with any stimulation of hearing nerves: previous damage from too much volume, aging (me not you), ear infection especially viral infection, etc.
Avoiding stimuation/music/loud noise for a few days will work in overstimulation. W. infection/pain needs to be looked at. ...Read more

Baby 7 months old&for the past month or so he moans&goes back&forth from his side to back when sleeping&this sometimes wakes him up. Teething symptom?

Not necessarily: This is a common sleep pattern at that age. It is also the beginning of a period of separation anxiety that can account for night waking. Just be consistent and supportive. I don't buy the issue of teething.It gets blamed for just about anything at this age. ...Read more

Insomnia: A vicious cycle. Might start by tracking sleep hygiene - Keep diary for 1-2 weeks that includes monitoring sleep hygiene behaviors and daily onset/awakening. If modifying behaviors is too much, see a doctor to discuss options, including medication or cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia (recommended for non medical-related insomnia).

Why do I always oversleep after I get back in bed after waking up at 5am? I fall into the deepest sleep and cannot wake up.

Stay up: I would recommend staying up. Early morning is your most productive time. I would suggest staying up and reading or other productive activity. You may need to go to bed earlier to assure you get enough sleep. Most people need at least about 8 hrs. Some only need 6-7 and others may need 9-10, but more than 10 may make you more sluggish and less productive ...Read more

My sleeping pattern is stuffed. I sleep at 2am & wake up at noon. Can't get back to normal. I gym everyday. What can I do to sleep early?

A little each day: Go to sleep only 15-30 minutes earlier each day [it's hard to shift back quicker than that]. Also remove all obstacles to sleep: 1) don't look at tv or the computer before bed, 2) make sure you're room is dark and quiet - even light from your cable box can prevent good sleep, 3) make sure your pillow and mattress are comfortable, 4) anxiety/depression/stress make sleep worse - see a doctor for help. ...Read more
