Hi can I get a post please. Has anybody on here got a sleeping disorder that they where prescribed medication for then fallen pregnant and it wasn’t safe to continue to take the medication anymore? What did you do? I’ve had a sleeping disorder since I was around 6 years old (I’m now 22) and now because I’m pregnant I’ve had to stop taking the medication I was prescribed to help me sleep (zopiclone and melatonin) I’ve tried numerous therapies ect aswell through out the years but nothing has helped me sleep. I’m now getting 2 hours of sleep a night and I’m exhausted because I just cannot get to sleep. I’m so drained and I just don’t know what to do. The doctor and my therapist both said there’s nothing I can take, even though melatonin is naturally produced by the body (mine produces none hence why I took supplements) it’s not proven to be safe during pregnancy as I’m taking larger amounts than the body would naturally produce. Sorry for the long post and I hope it makes sense but I just don’t know what to do, I’m absolutely drained and have no energy whatsoever 😞 x
