How to stay Wide Awake.

Recommended Posts

Since I came back from the UK, I cannot get my sleeping pattern back to normal. It is nearly three weeks now.

Most nights I am losing about three hours sleep, and then falling asleep through the day.

 

Is there anything I can do to prevent falling asleep through the day? In the past, I have always returned to normal after about a week.

May I point out I never have any problems actually falling asleep, it's mostly waking up around 3 am and then falling asleep about 7am

for maybe two hours, then nodding off through the day for short spells.

Melatonin is very helpful for this, you can get it from Lazada. Take it at bedtime and you can repeat dose if you awaken in them iddle of the night (might want to get it in sublingual form for that purpose).

 

As much exposure to sunlight as possible during the day also helps.

Thanks Sheryl, I will make a point of doing that.

Cafeïne works wonders.

Easily available in Thailand at every 7-11 in the small bottles with energy drink.

Some studies suggest that body and mind follows what stomach does. 

 

Therefore, if you eat breakfast, you should wake up for that and eat at that time. Follow your normal eating rhythm throughout the day and you should get back to your normal sleeping pattern.

I have been back to my normal eating rhythm for the past two weeks.

More modern thinking is to eat an apple or two if you want to stay awake rather than go the caffeine route. Nothing ventured....

Don't eat fruit either except in liquid form.

Maybe your diet is messed up ? Maybe you lack proteins, vitamins etc so it also disturb your sleeping pattern.

M150.

Or it's generic equivalents.

It's a miracle worker, a gift from God.

Especially 2 bottles one after the other...

If you are losing sleep at night try Domirax, an anti histamine with the strongest drowsy side effects of any anti histamine. Won't put you to sleep but when you do drop off your sleep will last longer.

 

A lot better than Xanax and perfectly legal. Usually 30 baht for a sheet of 10. Don't settle for another anti histamine as they are not as effective. You might have to try several chemists but they can usually be found with effort.

 

They are a small blue lozenge shape
