Waking up at the same time every night - scared
« on: February 16, 2014, 03:56:50 AM »
Hey, writing this in the middle of the night. I started taking fluoxetine a week and a half ago, I don't know if it's related but every night for at least a week I have woken up at night between 12 and 1 AM without fail and I don't know why. I keep ignoring it but now it's driving me crazy. Anyone know what could be causing this?  :traurig001: ;*)

It would seem that maybe your body is now just used to waking up at that time so it continues to do it. Sort of like people who wake up when their alarm clock usually goes off during the week on the weekends. But there's no "cause." It just happened. :winking0008:

It could be a lot of things. It could be anxiety, hormones, your new med.

When I ovulate, almost without fail for about three days, I wake up at 5am. No matter what time I go to sleep. I've been taking abilfy for a week and a half and now I wake up at exactly 3am. Lol.

Give some time for the med to take effect and see if it goes away. In the mean time go to sleep an hour early. When you wake up do some boring things: 15 minutes of a boring movie will do. Don't watch in bed, try not to turn on lights. After 15 minutes try to go back to sleep.

Most of the time this works for me.
