Been suffering for 4 years from menapause with bad hot flashes and very bad insomnia. I can handle the flashes but the insomnia is very disturbing. I got off Ambian (mg) a few months ago because I actually think it was making things worse. I’m aiming to reclaim my sleep without meds. So, I’m seeing a cognitive therapist , do yoga, accupuncture , etc. Things are improving compared to a year ago but not where I want to be. I sleep soundly only 3 hrs before awakening to go to the bathroom and then the brain is wide awake and can’t easiky go back to sleep. I sometimes do get back to sleep but will wake again an hour later. A good night is 3 wakeups. A bad one is 4 Or 5. Anyone else experiencing the insomnia part of menopause . How common is it? Will this ever end?
