Sun, May 26 6:06am · Weening Off of Ativan For Sleep in Sleep Health

My last appointment the doctor said to take a Cloneazepam when I go to bed and another when I wake up which is usually 2-3 hours, then restless the rest of the night. He said to try this for six months and if it does not work we will try something different.

Thu, Apr 18 3:02pm · Kneepain in Bones, Joints & Muscles

My knee has been painful since replacement in June 2018. Although I did have staph infection and was told that healing would be a long time, whatever that is. Been to three other Orthopedic Surgeons and after looking at the knee with swelling and immobility, they all say that it is still infected and they aspirate the knee and send the fluid to the lab. Every report reflects no infection. Then they recommend PT, which has been totally ineffective. I can only sleep on my back, and in that position sleep is only a few hours a night. Side sleeping creates deep intense pain. The other knee is bone on bone with a torn meniscus, and I will tolerate it, because it is a whole lot better than the replaced knee. Since I have been forced to stop all of my fun activities, this stupid knee is also affecting my emotional well being.

Had several cortisone shots for my trochanteric bursitis, each one provided temporary relief. Mine came after a hip resurfacing. Finally had a revision of the hip to THR.

Fri, Feb 1 5:16pm · Insomnia. Nothing seems to help. in Sleep Health

Good Evening, the Cloneazepam has not been as effective as I had hoped. Next appointment I will ask sleep Dr about alternatives. Although at the last appointment he said Insomnia is a trial and error process. I think that I have not been sleeping for so many years that finding a medication that does not have all of the associated problems may not be available. Oh well, I could have more serious medical issues. Best Wishes. BJ

I was prescribed Cloneazepam for a racing mind at night. It was also suppose to help me sleep. Not sure it does either very well. Good Luck.

Sat, Jan 26 5:11am · Hip Resurfacing Surgery in Bones, Joints & Muscles

Good Morning, wish I had better news on resurfacing. Had my hip resurfaced in 2005 to be able to continue to do triathlons. Nothing but a swollen, immobile and painful hip until I finally had it revised in 2009.
