  • The Problem With Somaxon's Silenor [View article]
    Kathleen, if you are relatively healthy you may be experiencing Advanced Sleep Phase Syndrome. That is, your internal clock is set to early rise. A board certified sleep specialist may want to use afternoon bright light exposure (with or without low-dose melatonin) to gradually delay your sleep-wake schedule. There is very little cost and fewer side effects compared to prescription or OTC sleep aids.

    BTW, anticholinergic medications such as dipenhydramine, doxepin and amitryptyline can cause very problematic side effects in older persons: http://1.usa.gov/ImtVcC
