Post 'No new meds', revisited
Well, we're trying him on Trazodone for sleep. He took it last night and slept better than usual. Not longer, unfortunately! But he only woke up once and I just covered him up and he went back to sleep. I hope this will work out well over the long haul. At least, he didn't have an adverse reaction to it!!! :)

That is fantastic!!! I am always terrified anytime a new medication is discussed or even thought of.... So glad that this has been a good experience for you :D

It was just one night, so far, so we'll see. He can't take Seroquel so I'm really hoping this one will work.
