These : These are questions best posed to your sleep specialist. You should have had a post-sleep study meeting with your specialist where you would have been told the meaning of your results and been given a set of options. That is where you should have discussed your issue with sleeping own your back. It very well be that you have sleep apnea no matter in what position you sleep.

Another option is seroquel (quetiapine) xr, an extended-release preparation. Speak to your physician about these options. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I struggle to fall asleep and wake up every few hours regardless of where I am. Zopiclone did not help much. What might be the problem?
Bad dreams: If you rule out the external causes mentioned by dr. Olson the remaining cause is waking during dreams. We go into rem sleep, in which we dream about every 2 hours at the beginning of the night and about every 75 minutes at the end of sleep. The bad dream may be awakening you without your remembering the dream at all. This is more likely if you awaken with a fast pulse. If so, see a therapist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
